Rolling Ridge 2010

Today, Mom and I packed a picnic, rounded up the kids, and headed to Rolling Ridge Ranch. It is basically a ranch in the heart of Amish Country that has a wagon ride through woods and beautiful countryside to see all kinds of animals. From monkeys to deer to water buffalo...we saw them! The kids had a great time and it was just a perfect day for us to go!

Ellie laughing at a parrot that was talking to her. She would crack up because it would say, "Let me out!" then laugh. Ellie thought this was hysterical!

Reid checking out the talking parrot. He had NO idea what to make of it!

Reid loved the baby cow that was just so calm and sweet.

Ellie in her glory holding a baby bunny. She wanted to take one home.

She also wanted to take the baby ducks home, too. If we would let her, Ellie would love to have her own personal zoo here at home!

Reid on the wagon ride checking out some zebras and water buffalo. He had never been so close before!

This "zonkey" (part zebra, part donkey) loved Ellie. He would follow the wagon everywhere we went and come back to Ellie each time for more food. Ellie also wanted to bring this guy home with us!

Reid got to help "drive" the wagon....and that was quite the experience for him. I have never seen him so quiet!!!! He was just in his glory taking it all in!

Then, it was Ellie's turn! Here she is with our driver, Marty.

Mom and Ellie on the wagon. So much fun today! A great way to make some wonderful new memories!
