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!

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!
