One Last Stop...

on our Tri-State (MD, WV, PA) area Thanksgiving weekend and boy was it worth it! We met friends from Baltimore at The Springhouse Family Farm.
you know Joshua well enough to know that he couldn't stay away for long...and this is after he let the calf suckle on his fingers! And then we hear someone yelling from around the corner..."a calf is being born, come quick!"
We made it in time for the afterbirth...the boys were fascinated while Mommy stood shocked that no one was there to help the cow (I am very aware of my need for support and encouragement during the birthing process)!
And finally our little animal lover "milked" a cow with a lift from Mr. John. was a very educational afternoon on the farm!
