Burnside Farms

 Today Declan and I drove out to Haymarket, VA to go to Burnside Farms.  We met a friend and her two kids there and walked around in the sunflower field for about an hour. It was a beautiful day and the kids had lots of fun checking out all of the flowers and visiting with the animals. Declan was totally in love with all of the bees (he calls them "busies") and kept trying to pick them off of the sunflowers.  Luckily he was not successful and no bees were injured during our visit. 

We also spent some time looking at the chickens, goats and pigs that they had in a small penned in area.  Declan especially liked the goats because they would come right up to the fence and NOT try to bite him.  Always a plus!  We got some of the honey from the beehives right on the farm and then drove over to a cute splash park/pool for a picnic and a swim.  Declan was exhausted and slept the whole way back.  We headed right over to camp to pick up Aidan, Emmy and Aoife.  Aidan had gotten sick during the day and I felt terrible that no one had called me to come get him!  We got him home and into bed.  Hopefully he'll be feeling well enough for camp tomorrow.  It's so unfair that the ONLY week of the summer that they have camp is the one time that Aidan gets sick!!  Poor kid!!
