Mountainside Petting Farm

We spent our Saturday afternoon at the petting farm and had a blast.
The Mountainside Petting Farm is in Afton, which is about an hour from our house on the other side of Charlottesville.
Savannah has been talking about seeing cows and chickens ever since we went to the Orange County Fair last month so I thought this might be a great place to take the kids.
We drove through Charlottesville and took the highway to the farm, but drove back on Skyline Drive in order to enjoy the scenery and take advantage of our yearly pass.
The petting farm is small, but they have an interesting mixture of animals; including a camel, a pair of peacocks and a pot-bellied pig to go along with their calf, chickens, ducks, goats, sheep and horses.
Here are several pictures from our adventure to the petting zoo... I believe the top one is the best picture I've ever taken of our kids!
