Anyway, they were at the zoo today and when we walked in the gates there was a large group right in front of us, probably 50 people or so and Taite became overjoyed with excitement! She yells out "Oh! Oh! Somebody invited the AMISH!!!" She was completely sincere in her exhilaration, but I wasn't sure that our Amish friends would take it that way so I tried to hush her.
Then Bailey looked confused, "Wait, I didn't see any buggies in the parking lot?!"
Ellery said, "Um...we're at the Zoo, I am SURE that they park with the other horses!"
These Amish people kept throwing the monkeys taffy. I don't know if that is good for the monkeys, but it was pretty funny to see the monkeys get a little hyper just opening the candy.
The Amish ladies right next to us were speaking in German (well, similar ) of course and I said to the girls, "Hey, they are speaking in German just like Oma."
Taite got all excited and said "Oh I must sing "In Den Hoen Baumen" to them!" ("In the Leafy Treetops" that my Mom taught her in German) I tried to dissuade her, but she eagerly replied "I know they want to hear it!"
Bailey was SO excited about the horses, she LOVES horses. I couldn't tell what made her more excited though, the ponies or the fact that they had one named Sadie...which of COURSE she picked because she loves Sadie so much. She was adamant that she wanted Sadie to ride even though she was a little big for her. That made her whole day!
I kept catching these two little guys turning around and
I took this in the pitch black tunnel when they weren't expecting it!
