Remember the sunflower farm.....well at the farm they have the cows. Every year they release the cows into the sunflowers to eat. It's apparently like a dessert for them, LOL. One of the gentlemen here in the RV park told us that it is a must see experience at least once in your life. So this morning we all piled in the truck to head back to Buttonwood Farms to watch the Cows. We got there about 10 AM and they had just released them into the Sunflower pasture.
Garrett got bored of watching from the wall so we went for a walk. There was a guy on a 4 wheeler and he brought in some hay in this particular area. All of a sudden while Garrett and I are standing there the cows come a running. They wanted their breakfast of hay. We had a great time standing there watching them eat. A couple of them would get nasty with each other and head butt. One time they were so close to us that Garrett got scared from it because they were being so mean to each other.
Here in New England they have these stone fences EVERYWHERE!! Some of them are very beautiful.
Garrett and I then walked down to the open fence to watch them in the field. He had a little better view in there.
There were so many cows in this field. They were definitely having a good day and getting full on sunflowers!!
While Tim was taking pictures myself and Grandma Sutton were on the other side watching Garrett play. He was having fun picking up sticks pretending they were bats so he could hit the nuts I was throwing at him. At one point he even had a lady watching and she brought him a bigger stick so he could hit it better. One other person was telling Linda that in the Fall they have Hayrides and a corn maze you can go through. Sounds like we will definitely be back to visit.
Tim was having a ball taking pictures!! He went all over the property and got some really great shots!!
He got some great shots of the barn and other buildings around the sunflower field.
How the cows eat the sunflowers. They circle around and go slowly, savoring every bite.
He saw some neat things while walking around.
He finally made his way back around to us, and Garrett was so excited to see his dad!!
We headed back to the RV as we needed to eat lunch and Garrett had to have a nap before our Baseball game tonight. Well on the way through to our RV site. I saw some Turkeys sitting in a tree.
Tonight we head to the Pawtucket RedSox Baseball game. It's Garrett's first baseball game and we are so excited!!
Giving them our tickets and heading inside!!
Garrett was absolutely loving it!! Here we are looking for our seats. After we got inside Tim was in the front, Linda was between Garrett and myself. All of a sudden Garrett charges ahead and smacks his Grandma right in the rear end. It was hilarious!! We both busted a gutt laughing so hard. We still can't believe he did that.
Found our seats and waiting for the opening games to start!!
This was as far as we got when the weather decided to make a turn for the worse. They said over the announcement that a storm was coming and that they wanted to delay the game for 1 hour. What a storm it was!! It poured!!!! We came inside and Garrett and I went up on one of the top floors where there wasn't many people and I let him run, literally. Tim and his mom stayed downstairs and waited it out. It rained for about 45 minutes and then finally it came to a stop and a rainbow came out :)
Back inside and Garrett was showing off his new baseball mitt and cap we got him :)
Some family selfies while at the game :)
Garrett cheering for the players to come out and play!! We also enjoyed a beautiful sunset!! He is such a funny little boy!!
Well the game was cancelled :( However, we did get to enjoy the fireworks that they had planned that night. They were awesome!! One of the best we've seen for a Baseball Game. What a great night.
