A trip to Tilden Park's Little Farm - Emily cozies up with her favorite animal! #kids #parenting #familyfun
While David was on vacation the month of February, we spent a number of afternoons at Tilden Park's Little Farm.
I use to take Emily here when she was a toddler and it was always her favorite.
They have cows, horses, sheep, goats, geese, chickens, pigs, rabbits, ducks, and even wild turkeys! You are allowed to bring lettuce and/or celery to feed the animals (nothing else as they are on strict diets!) and the Rangers are there to answer questions, give you behind-the-scenes tours, and even assist you with some animal petting.
This particular visit, Emily got to go inside the chicken coup and... well, see for yourself:
Birds are her favorite. Any kind of aviary. However, since she visited a petting zoo back when she was only three years old and got to carry around a chicken for what felt like an eternity after Christmas Mass, she's been obsessed!
It's quite a drive up into the hills but boy is it worth it!
There are restrooms and water fountains and even a little play ground. The nature center is really something else. We like to go on Wednesday's after school because there's no one there and the animals are hungry again!
