Ethel the cow

Ethel the cow Rusty Barn The ice cream farm as a little treat.
But for who?
Little Bird won't eat the gorgeous stuff, gone off it again.
But, no matter, for the excitement is about seeing the cows.
Like, really excited. Jumping up and down. Can't stop smiling.
LB really loves them.
Barn boy Cow dance Not afraid.
The cows come over.
One even did a little frisky, gallopy, jumpy frolick across the barn.
A happy cow.
A jump over the moon kind of cow.
Happy Ethel and friends.
Love the cows hug-a-cow Cows eating More interested in animals than people.
Can't fault that.
My little boy who has never said 'hi' or 'bye'
but can name all the animals with such joy.
My little Temple Grandin
barn boy Pink Pots We do go in and get ice creams.
Just in case........
Double scoop - lemon curd and jammy dodger.
Toffee popcorn and raspberry cheesecake.
10/10 Ethel and chums.
Best ice cream in Cheshire.

My little girl cracks up when I make a cow noise, so I can't wait to take her to the farm soon! Wonder what she will make of them. And can I say Oh. My. God. I don't know what sounds better... lemon curd or Jammy Dodger icecream!

mummyoftwo said...

That does look like good ice cream! We have an ice cream place near us where you can meet the cows too. It's good fun isn't it!

It's in Knutsford in Cheshire. Just a little farm to stop at but there are some pretty amazing ones in the area with a lot more to do. Cheshire Ice Cream farm is a great one.

I just love cows, their eyes make me feel sorry for them.
