last weekend, we spent a lovely afternoon at Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle
amidst the cows, chickens, goats, pigs and rabbits
we walked some of the trails, of which there are over 20 miles worth
filled with mountain bikers, horseback riders, and hikers like us
in the winter, they offer cross country skiing and a lantern lined trail for
what they call “moonlight skiing”
sounds like a lot of fun to me…we will have to dust off our skis this winter!
we ended our visit at the ice cream stand
and of course, being a dairy farm,
it was some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had.
sorry…I didn’t photograph it 😦

I’m late in posting this

the week just kinda got away from me
and it’s already Friday!
I’m so ready for the weekend
as you probably are too…

Hope it’s a great one!!

    • Isn’t it?! I loved watching the kids petting and feeding those animals…the expression on their faces! Hope you are enjoying your weekend as well!

  1. That sounds and looks like a great place. I’ve never heard of Carlisle, MA. I’m not native to MA so there’s so many towns that are unfamiliar. Have a great weekend!

    • It’s a beautiful town near Concord actually. Don’t feel bad Becky, I grew up here and I’m still unfamiliar with many of the towns. Hope you are enjoying this first day of fall!!

    • It was a great afternoon and I was very impressed with how clean and well kept that farm was. We will definitely head back there again soon.

  2. What a way to enjoy a weekend. Love the tongue stuck out, but all the captures were great. I miss my chickens… 😦

    • Thank you..It actually was a she (so hard to tell!) and just before I snapped this photo, the calf had stuck her tongue out…she was just mimicking! So cute to see!

  3. These are great photos! Love the baby’s tongue. πŸ™‚ And any farm that has Holstein cattle is my kind of farm. Looks like you had a great time.
