Our friends brought their niece, Ashlyn, to the farm on Monday to get some eggs and to visit all the animals. A whole lot of kid <---> animal fun ensued.
Then, we went to visit the puppies...
Mama Ruthie is the perfect pal...
Ashlyn had to warm up to this Very Big Dog.
Uncle Marty, one of Ruthie's favorite people, helped Ashlyn get some confidence.
Strike a pose.
Let this be a lesson to you - when kids and animals come together, prepare to burn up a bunch of pixels. Dang... weapons grade cuteness.
