This weekend, we spent a day at Mr Minion’s great-aunt’s house. We were invited to their 50th wedding anniversary celebration and Little Miss Minion was so excited! The house is about 2 hours away, and it is the farthest out in the country I have ever been. We got off the expressway and then began the trek to the house. We drove through woods, over a one lane bridge (which I didn’t really think existed), and three miles down a dirt road. I lost internet signal sometime during the last couple miles, but we were on the right road so we just had to look for the address.
The house is on a huge property. There is a lake, a barn, a horse pasture (complete with horse), a huge shed for big equipment, a chicken coop, a big garden, and the house. Little Miss Minion was beside herself to see an actual horse and kept pointing and yelling “horsey! Neigh! Horsey!” Then Mr Minion took her to see the chickens. “Ahhhh! Chickens! Quack quack!” We are still working on some animal sounds. 🙂
After Little Miss Minion ate her weight in Mac and cheese, she kept saying that she “need go see my chickens. Chickens please.” It was adorable. So of course we went back one more time so she could see them.
It was a great day and I loved seeing her reaction to the animals. We’ve been talking about cows and horses and birds and stuff forever, but she actually got to see them in person.
