During the school holiday a few weeks ago, the boys and I were delighted to discover farm animals hanging out at our local shopping centre.
Eliot had a great time brushing the sheep and would sprinkle straw across their backs so as to have more brushing to do.
This was about as far away from me as Peter was willing to go. I couldn't really blame him. Most of the sheep and goats were eye level with him and some of them were pretty brazen, looking for anything edible.
It took a little while for Eliot to get the hang of feeding the animals. It tickled his hand so he kept pulling back and spilling the food.
Once he figured it out, though, he was determined to keep them all well-fed.
