On Saturday we made our second trip to Maplewood Farm, this time for a birthday party. Once again, this wonderful little farm in North Vancouver, less than half an hour from our home, delivered. The rain held off, the light was good, and the toddlers were even semi-cooperative with my photography attempts!
The adventurous birthday boy enjoyed getting up close and personal with the goats,
And my timid girl was very brave and even attempted to feed the ducks right out of the palm of her hand.
(Hands were washed before cake was consumed.)
This place might just have magical powers: Our visit there brought me to a whole new level of acceptance that fall is here, and it's really not such a bad thing. The photo ops alone might just be worth the cold and the rain!
