Queens County Farm
This way to goats!
At first, James was more interested in picking up rocks and sticks than he was in looking at the animals, but once he realized that's what the other kids were doing, he decided he was interested. He was very taken with the goats, but I was attacked by goats at a petting zoo as a kid, so I was a little nervous with them. We took a few pictures and then moved on.
Over here, goat!
Trying to feed some nice docile sheep
I wasn't terribly trusting of the alpacas either. They might be cute and woolly, but they're big and tough. We went to spend some quality time with the sheep. My favorite part was that James made friends with a little boy and an older girl that had a large feed bucket, and they quickly volunteered to share the feed with him. I half expected James to stick the grass in his own mouth when the little kid gave it to him, but he walked right over and started feeding the sheep like the older kids.
Feeding the sheep with his new buddy
We went to see the other animals, but James pretty much topped out at the sheep. After that he went back to his rock and stick quest while I took photos.

Family photos are my favorite!
