The Art Barn

IMG_9121e This morning Maisie and I met up with Kathy & Chani at a cute little place called The Art Barn.   It’s a little farm with lots of animals that the children can pet and a barn where they do little art projects.

IMG_9128eMaisie wasn’t feeling 100% today as she had been up numerous times during the night as her nose was completely stuffed up and she just had difficulty breathing.   Maisie had a decent day and did her best not to be overly moody and miserable but had she slept better I think that she would have had an even better day. 

IMG_9134eAfter their time at horseback riding camp I wasn’t surprised that both girls gravitated to the horse and grabbed some brushes to groom him.

IMG_9136eAfter time in the barnyard we took a little tractor ride around the farm.
