Kangaroos, and Rabbits, and Ponies..oh my!!!

Last Tuesday was a special event at a farm in Hudson put on by the folks at Veridian Credit Union. We went for a hayride and saw the cows and horses. Rhea thinks that the cows are pretty cool, she even speaks a little cow from time to time. Rhea was also really excited to see Kirby the Kangaroo there although, here excitement was inversely proportional to the distance between her and Kirby. As long as we were t least ten feet away from Kirby, then Rhea was very happy to see him and wanted to get as close as possible. However, as we began to get closer to Kirby, Rhea wanted less and less to do with him until we were less than one foot away and she was petrified of him. She is amazing when it comes to meeting

Not quite sure of Kirby the Kangaroo

Definitely likes the ponies though and no we are not buying one of those for the house

...and another

On Sunday we made a trip to Bettendorf so that Carl could participate in a cyclocross race. There was a large area with playground equipment that Rhea found to be much more exciting than the bicycle races that were all around her. She ended up hanging out with Carl for a while, and then myself, and finally her Uncle Adam took her so that she could spend an insane amount of time playing on the slides and swings. We'll probably have to get something like that for the backyard of the house next summer.
