We ventured out to Maplewood Farm on Sunday morning, thanks to my friend Jessica for loaning us a car. We had heard amazing things about this farm, but the weather was a little grey so we weren't sure how it would go. We dressed for the weather and 5 minutes after we arrived, the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful day. This farm is amazing. It is nestled into a residential neighbourhood, is cute, and is full of amazing animals. Zack & Maggie's favourite site were the baby lambs.
The twin black lambs were born on Saturday and the single baby lamb was born just a few hours before we arrived on Sunday! They asked to go see these baby lambs four times! Let's see, what other animals were there: cows, horses, goats (little ones, pigmy perhaps?), guinea pigs, peacocks, ducks, chickens (running around on their own), bunnies, cockatoos, budgees, turkeys, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some.
We only have Jessica's car for a couple more days...Maplewood Farm is accessible by transit, and now that we know how amazing it is, we will definitely be back.
Busy week up ahead - a kangaroo cake for a woman who is off to Australia to get married, Dr.Seuss cookies for a Birthday party for twin boys, and I just finished helping my friend Jessica bake and ice 2 dozen cakies for her coworker's birthday.
