Barleylands Visit

So here are some photos from our lovely afternoon spent at Barleylands Farm in Billericay.

Ben and Olivia looking at the Dexter cows.

Hugh, Ben and Penny having fun on the go-karts! Olivia and I were very grown up and just stood and watched them!
Livvy feeding the goat - thankfully Ben was with us and could lift her up, which saved my bad shoulder!
Penny feeding the same goat - it was very greedy!
Hugh and Livvy on the train.
There is a story behind the trip on the train. We have been visiting Barleylands for more years than I care to remember - we first visited when the children were about 10 and 8 and then I have been going to the craft village on a regular basis, firstly for the dollshouse shop and more recently for scrapbooking stash. Anyway, Hugh (our resident train geek) has always had to go and have a look at the train and watch people having a ride on it, but has never got to go on it. When we decided that we would take Livvy to the farm I suggested that he could take her for a ride on the train too - he was absolutely delighted and they both thoroughly enjoyed their little run on the train!
