She enjoyed looking at lots of books with Tasha on the way down. Once we arrived she met all the animals that live at the house we stayed at. 3 dogs and 4 cats and a bunny! We made sure to keep her safe so she didn't become a chew toy for any of the animals.
Thursday we headed to the farm for the BIG Thanksgiving dinner. Etta was SO excited to see what a real Thanksgiving was like since she comes from England where they do not celebrate this holiday. She can't wait to tell her brother Treasure all about the foods she saw!
Tasha is holding Etta in the yearly Thanksgiving Photo.
There were 2 big tables in the house FULL of yummy food and lots of family! Etta got to sit with Tasha who was so hungry she mistakenly picked up Etta and almost ate her for dinner!! EEEkkk!
She couldn't believe all the yummy food! Sweet potatoes, corn, turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, hot rolls with butter, stuffing, turnip, squash and so much more! She was very full at the end of the meal and asked if she could have a tour of the farm and it's critters. We were in much need of some exercise so we headed out for a walk.
Yes, I ate ALL of that food!!! It was yummy!
We didn't get far when Etta spotted some very large feathery things?? I explained to her those were chickens and that they lay eggs that we eat. She seems a bit nervous around them since they were everywhere! Tasha enjoyed feeding them and petting them.
Don't worry Etta they are friendly.
Then we headed over to the barn and Tasha showed her how to feed a cow some hay. Etta was so amazed at this BIG brown and white animal! The cow was very gentle and had a VERY BIG TONGUE!
I think Etta's favorite part of the farm was the tractor!! Tasha was very excited too they both played for quite a while on this one tractor. Tasha decided she needed to play in the BIG mud puddle so I had to rescue Etta so she didn't get muddy!
We headed out on the property for a wonderful walk and saw some amazing views. Etta and I spotted a very cool moss covered boulder and had to investigate! She started to get tired so she opted to ride along in my pocket for the rest of the walk.
One of me and the cool moss!
Don't worry Etta you can ride with me!
She fell fast asleep on the ride home later that day and Friday told us how much she enjoyed her visit to the farm. Etta has become so close to our little family we will be so sad to see her go. She was truly a wonderful traveling companion and guest at our house. We can't wait to continue to follow her adventures around the world!
Thanks for letting Etta be apart of a very special day!
Jessica, Greg and Tasha
