Last year’s chick pictures didn’t go quite as smooth as we’d planned. Annabelle was terrified of the chicks and wouldn’t even sit with them near her. We did manage to get a few pics of her halfway smiling while safe inside a big wooden tub.
I wasn’t sure how this year would go, either. We’d been talking the chicks up for days, and trying to prepare AB for it. The day we went up to the Mizell’s, she was excited about seeing the chicks and being with her friends, so I was hopeful that she wouldn't be scared this year.
When we got to the farm, Carrie went into the chicken house and got a few chicks and brought them out in the crate. I almost fell out when I looked up and saw ALL four of the kids kneeling around the crate and miss priss HOLDING one! She walked right up and grabbed one!
We took turns trying to get some pictures of each of the kids, but for the most part, they just played with all the baby chicks, and loved every minute of it!
I called Allie Claire, “Elmira” that day. She reminded me of the character on Looney Toons that loved all the baby animals and wanted to “hug them and squeeze them and kiss them all over”…
The chick’s face in this next one is hilarious.
Gus and Noah were glad to get in on the chick field trip this year, too! Both boys were so cute with the chicks.
It was such a fun little trip to the chicken farm again this year.
For memory’s sake, here’s a pic of the girls three years in a row:
Such fun memories & traditions!
