A few weeks ago, Liam and I took a short trip up to Everett, WA to spend some much-needed time with friends. While we were there, my friend G introduced us to this vast toddler mecca that is Forest Park. Not only is there a 16-sprinkler water park for the kids to play in, the park also hosts a donation-only animal farm, a swim center, four-five playsets, and sports facilities! I think there is even more to do there, but that is what I was able to gather in the two hours that I spent there. What an amazing resource for the city of Everett! The best part about it was how happy it made Liam to be there. I have never seen him have so much fun in one location. A must-do for any mama in the Seattle area.
These goats were at the door ready to greet us when we arrived.
I think these two were Liam’s favorite. Watching him get the chance to play with such friendly little animals gave me somwhat of a glimpse into the future for a time that we may have a few of these little guys running around…..goats that is.
The farm included rabbits, goats, sheep, ponies, horses, geese, ducks, pigs, chickens, and one baby calf. I have never seen anything cuter in my life.
After spending a good amount of time with the animals, we ventured over to the waterpark across the parking lot. The expressions on his face say it all.
I can still hear him laughing…
