This is the only picture I have from this day. We went to Kendall's birthday party at Old MacDonald's farm. It is a great place to take kids. It is a playground and petting zoo all in one. Deer roam freely and all the animals are in pens that you can walk right up to to feed or pet them.
But as it turns out, Asher is not really into woodland creatures. As I was showing Asher how to hold his hand out and feed the sheep the food that they let you feed them, Asher got very freaked out. About this time, two deer who have no fear of people wander up to see what's for snack time today. Asher completely loses it when he sees the first deer and turns to run away and runs right into the other deer. He just falls to the ground and waits for me to come rescue him. I have Jude in the sling so I throw the rest of the food down and heroically save my little boy from the perilous deer.
Then, he is standing at a fenced-off pond, but accidentally steps too close to the fence and gets one leg stuck in the water. Of course, I am feeding Jude at this point so I run over with the bottle tucked under my chin to pull Asher out. So now the poor boy has a wet foot for the rest of the morning.
Then we went and played in the sand and rode the train and all was right in his world again. I definitely want to bring him back there but we will wait until Daddy can come with us.
We got home and I was feeding Asher lunch. He started to gag a little because he tried to swallow a piece of his sandwich without bothering to chew it up. So he is choking and trying to get the food out of his throat and I am kneeling in front of him. I can see he is breathing, but is still struggling to get the food out of his throat. That's when the gag reflex kicks in and he throws up ALL OVER ME!
It was a busy day, needless to say. But after a bath, a load of laundry, and a nap, he was as good as new and I earned a new badge for my mama sash.
