first things first. always the petting/feeding zoo.
then, some face painting. anna chose a kitty. isaac wanted a batman on his cheek, but wound up with a weird bat. he didn’t mind.
we spent a good amount of time in the corn pit. as usual. anna was seriously cute.
isaac buried and reburied and rereburied his stuffed puppy, “biscuit”.
derek buried both kiddos. isaac first.

the giant tire mountain. lots of leaping.
