Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill

We wanted to continue to enjoy our weekend of wonderful weather by spending as much time outside as possible, so late Sunday afternoon we drove to Harrodsburg to visit the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.


I visited once a long time ago with my parents but Pete had never been.  The above picture is the only building we visited, me mostly wanted Ellie to see all the different farm animals.  She was terrified of the turkey, and almost started crying when he gave a great "gobblegobblegobble."  She wasn't particularly fond of the chickens, either.  She liked the goats, and she REALLY liked the two white horses that galloped past us.  We had to go to the other side of the village to find the sheep, but once we did, it was well worth it (and I finally dug the camera out of my stroller bag).


 


We also played with bubbles and watched the geese.

 


We were greeted by five little ducks on our way out.


So we decided Ellie should meet them.  Ellie was excited - well, excited and scared.





We stopped by one of our favorite restaurants for dinner on the way home and then whisked the baby girl home for bath and bed.  Happy Baby = Happy Family.

Too cute! I can't wait to see her next month, she's changed so much since June! Although I'm happy to see her love for bath time dunkers has not changed! That's still the Ellie I know!
