Carver's Cove

My mom heard about a fun little farm in Eden called Carver's Cove that lets you pet and feed all the animals. So we checked it out today! It was really hot, so we didn't stay too long, but we did have a great time while we were there! The boys loved all the animals! So cute and so fun!

Me showing Gray how to hold his hand to feed the goats (P.S. Goats kind of freak me out, so this was me being quite brave, I'll have you know!)

Gray was very brave also, and ended up loving it! Whenever we've gone to petting zoos before, he's never gotten even CLOSE to the animals. I was proud of him :)

T loved the chickens running all over the place. 

I loved the tiny little pygmy goats! They were just one day old!!!

This horse was so pretty -- it had blue eyes! I've never seen a horse with blue eyes before!

Llama llama llama!

The baby llama and baby T had quite the connection :)

Gray kept going back to feed the goats. They were his favorite :)

He always giggled when they licked the food up 

Following the chicken again. (hehe -- T gave my mom his hat, and she wore it most of the time :D)

T wasn't so sure if he liked feeding the goat...

He just went back to chasing the chicken.

He sat right down in the grass next to it, and hung out with it for a bit.

Baby turkeys

These little piglets were so funny! These ones are bottle-fed, and they were hungry, so they kept nudging everyone. Gray thought it was funny that they thought Daddy was their mommy! :)

Their little noses were surprisingly hard! They meant business!

They even let the boys climb all over the tractors. Little boy heaven! :)

And here it is -- the cherry on top! Grayson actually RODE ON THE HORSE!! I could not believe he actually did it! He needed me next to him, but he did great! 
What a fun little place! I think we'll be going back! :)

I'm loving playing with these iPhone apps lately :). Here are some of the adorable pics I've made with them.

Fun at Willard Bay

That's T, Jeanne, and Grayson on the beach, and Jordan wake boarding in the background

On Thursday we went to Willard Bay with Steve's family. We had a great time! Thatcher loved all the sand (well, the small gravel) and the seagulls. Grayson liked digging in the sand, too -- but he was also really brave and actually went in the water this time! He went out on the boat and wave runner, too. This is HUGE deal, because Gray hasn't gotten in water (except the bath tub) since he was a baby. He's always been terrified before, and hasn't gotten within a few feet of the water. I was so proud of him! And he loved it! In fact, he threw a huge tantrum when we made him get out -- which I much prefer to the tantrum he'd throw when we tried to get him IN. I'm cautiously hopeful that we'll have a summer full of boating and swimming pools that will actually be fun. :)

Cautious of the water at first, but that soon changed.

T loved chasing the seagulls!

Gray waded in to his ankles at first, and looked for cool rocks and shells

Getting a little braver....

I was SHOCKED when he went in to his waist! He's come a long way :)

T digging in the sand with the giant shovel

Gray loved the tube, especially when Uncle Jordan spun it around in circles with the Larson kids -- if you click on the pic to make it bigger, you will see he has a huge smile on his face! :)

Using a bucket as a drum

On the wave runner with Uncle Jordan

He loved it, and was asking to go again!
I loved T's floppy sun hat :)

T was very proud that he found water in the hole he dug -- "Oooo!"

Toddling away with a very sandy bum :)
