I knew Saige liked "Old McDonald" but I didn't realize HOW much until we went to Thanksgiving Point with our buddies, the Barneys. Candace and Connie so willingly came along to help out, and we soon realized how it really may take all three of us to contain Saige. First came the cows and of course Saige felt the need to get in the pen. We finally convinced her that they could hear her mooing from outside the pen, and we moved along to the donkey. And it just so happened that the donkey was the only animal near the fence that was willing to be touched, but ironically it also had a sign above it that said, "Watch out, I BITE!!" Yep you guessed it Saige wanted to climb right in.
We quickly moved along to the horses and pond animals, unfortunately Saige got a little distracted by the picnic tables on the lawn that must have been screaming to her, "PLEASE OH PLEASE COME DANCE ON ME!!" Saige must hear these things in her head, because no one else in the whole park had a problem passing them by. As the other kids were checking out the clydesdale and geese Saige moved and grooved atop the plastic picnic table.
As we moved along the park checking out the chickens, goats and other animals we soon realized Saige has no fear at all. She must also speak some universal animal language because as soon as she came around to each cage, they seemed to wander towards her and the goats even tried to jump out to see her.
Thanks to our buddies, Macie, Braxton, Brooks, Jake-o, Jocelyn, Jen and Beau for coming with us, and for putting up with Saige's attempts to become any animal possible. (And thank you Candace and Connie for helping me watch Saige and Milo, I just hope it doesn't make you want to not have children. I promise not all kids are like Saige.) And yet again, another exciting day that Milo has slept right through!!
