Our Summer in SLO, Part 7 {A Day in Avila}

Apparently we didn't get our fill of animals at the fair because the next morning we headed up to one of our favorite spots, Avila Valley Barn.  We met up with our new friend Erin {who helped me while we were babysitting Avi and Mila} and the sweet little boy she nannies for a quick bite of lunch and a round of feeding goats, donkeys and bunnies.

I attempted to take some pictures of my girls before lunch and then after lunch and, well, they just aren't always the most cooperative.







➹ Erin told the girls to give me a kiss and Sydney jumped up to go give her one! But I still love this shot. ➹







➹ So excited when the goats ate her lettuce! ➹


Even though we rode ponies the night before, I couldn't resist the urge to let them take another pony ride at the barn.  Luckily, we were able to upgrade to a real horse this time!




➹ Can you tell we got some taffy before the ride? ➹

➹ I do love this one...these girls. ➹

After Sydney's nap, we headed back up to Avila for the Friday night Farmer's Market.  David loves dancing with the girls and we were lucky to run into Olivia's friend, Macy.  {And a cow giving out coupons for free froyo!}





I'm getting a little sad that our time here is winding down.  We only have one full week left {and a couple of days into another week...}.  It's been so great being out and about every day and catching up with great friends.  Here's to getting caught up on these posts before we head back home!

I'm surprised the girls are still letting you take pictures of them. Don't get me wrong, I love to see what you all are doing, so I am glad they still (somewhat) let you takes lots and lots of precious pictures. You all are sure packing in a lot of activities while you are there. Nana and Poppy are going to have to come up with some new exciting AZ activities for the girls. HAHA

Looking forward to seeing you guys.
