Leaving The City For The Country--Part 2

As I told you yesterday , there was more to our adventure.
As we came back into the city we stopped at this
lovely little place--Faulkner's Ranch and Pumpkin
Farm. There is a multitude of things to do here.
Mr Ken reliving his childhood as a train engineer.
Here is the gift shop-You can find all sorts of things
here! I love the sign-which says" It's all about the
candy." Oh, so true!!!!!
The above photo and the next few are out front
as you come in from the parking lot.
Yes, folks this is the adventurous couple--Mr Ken and Me.
The above photo and the next few show all the
other fun things you can do here.
They also have many animals to look at and feed-
As you can see this is Humphry-a miniture bull.
Sheep to feed---You can buy feed in the gift shop
or out of machines in the barn.
Llamas--they really enjoyed being fed by some
of the kids there.
AND last but not least--- "The BIG Horny
Thing." This is Mr. Ken's title, my Father-
in-law said it was a Texas Longhorn.
As you can see this is a fun place even for
two "grown up" kids!
