tractor tongue

Where, you might ask did we go to find these pint sized tractors? Where else, but Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark. I hadn't been there except for last fall when we went to their huge and popular harvest festival that happens every year. So, when Tiffany and Tom along with twins Nate and Abby suggested we go yesterday, Liam and I jumped on the chance. And we are so glad we did... it was a totally different experience and going there when the weather was pleasant and the crowds were manageable was a treat (well going anywhere w/ T,T and the twins is a treat) ! Plus the kidd-o's are a little older now- and really got into the activities... Liam loved climbing on all of the tractors (of course) he even poached farmer Freddies REAL tractor when we were out in the field picking raspberries and tomatoes. Freddie was a good sport about it :)
Along with any good farm come farm animals... here at Underwood they have Emu's, Pigs, Chickens, Ponies and Goats... Liam loved the goats... they were so funny. He especially enjoyed feeding them, you could buy goat feed and feed them through these feed tubes. We bought two rounds of food and Liam wanted "MORE MORE MORE"... and he (and I ) were amazed that the goats walked the high beam high above the farm with fierce strut of a supermodel. I didn't take a whole bunch of photos because lugging around a big camera at a dusty farm + chasing after a running toddler isn't an equation that is super successful!

There is something about a tractor that brings out the tongue of a toddler - check out these pics of Liam, Nate and Abby - as their determination abounds, their tractor driving skills flourish.

that is so funny they all have their tongues out. Kindof like the Michael Jordan of tractors I guess. Looks like so much fun. We will have to check it out next time we are down. xoxo
