Sir George Staunton Country Park and Farm photos

Saturday, September 11, 2010

A couple of weeks ago, we took my granddaughter to the farm at the Staunton country park. It is a great place for both adults and children, full of interesting animals.
The first we encountered was a Llama. Tiana liked that.

She loved the ducks and geese.

Was quite interested in the calves.

Liked the rabbits and guinea pigs, which all had babies.

Then we saw the Donkey and it made a very loud Ee-aw, and it frightened her.

We thought the pigs were lovely, but Tiana was still a bit afraid.

She didn't want to look at the little horse and its foal

There was a beautiful baby donkey, but she just did not want to know. Then we saw the sheep and they were making a lot of noise because they wanted to be fed. She started to cry.
We took her in the playground, she was not as interested as she usually is and there were chickens walking about all under the swings.

The Cockerel was absolutely beautiful, she liked him. But she didn't like the goats or the deer.
There were people from the public library there and that made her feel better. The young man read her a story about Thomas the Tank Engine and Edward, then he gave her a nice bag with books in it. We decided to go in the walled garden next. There were a lot of runner beans and other vegetables growing and she suddenly got interested in those. Then she saw the pretty flowers and started running around happily and had a great time.

I think she is going to be like mummy who loves to grow vegetables and flowers.
It was time to go home. On the way out we bought some runner beans for lunch.

    Loved all your pictures and the recap of your day. What a nice day with Tiana. You should print this and keep it for her in a scrapbook. "Tiana's adventures with Grandma" or "Tiana's fun adventures"...something like that. emoticon You are such a blessing in her life. Keep sparking! emoticon emoticon
