Bob's Bunny Farm

My sister-in-law Sue, the owner of Main Street Cake's and Gifts in Dunlap, Iowa (which, by the way, if you haven't been there yet you are totally missing out on the best baked goods in the world) called us on the way to Iowa and said we needed to go out to Bob's farm (her dad's farm outside of Dunlap) because he had a million rabbits in every size, shape and color you've ever seen and we'd be total losers if we didn't take the children to see them.

Not wanting to be total losers, we concurred that, yes, we should see the rabbits. Rabbits are cute. Rabbits are cuddly. Rabbits taste like chicken.






When we arrived, the first thing Joanna did was run over to the cages and try to climb in. The rabbits that Jo is playing with here were the adolescents and they can be a bit, um, adolescent. They're quick little fellas.... 
So, Bob was kind enough to bring out his two nests of baby bunnies. They were really tiny and really cuddly and really cute and best of all - super slow. 


Annie wasn't so sure about the squirmy bunnies, but she eventually liked them. 


Peter liked the baby bunnies . . . 


Nathanael liked the baby bunnies . . .


Sam liked the baby bunnies . . . 


Susie liked the baby bunnies . . . 


Ben liked the baby bunnies (I think) . . . 


We already knew that Joanna liked the baby bunnies from the before picture of her climbing in the cage with them . . .


Well heck, I even liked the baby bunnies. Until one of them whizzed on me. 


And Renata, she . . .


. . . well . . . she really hated the baby bunnies.
So there you have it. 9 out of 10 Sherrill's loved the baby bunnies. 

But, you  might be wondering, just where is that little Maggie at? Didn't she play with the baby bunnies too?

Not really. And not because she didn't like the bunnies. She loved them. No, it was because Bob is an awesome Grandpa and he has an awesome farm and so she was busy on the most awesome of awesome swings . . .


 It even has a motor to keep the swings going so that we adults can sit back and have a cold one while the kids get dizzy.

Somehow, in the midst of all this picture-taking, we missed out on a photo of Bob and of Aunt Sue! I can't believe it! But, strangely enough, we did snap a picture of Uncle Mark. 




Mark is telling you to be sure to check out Bob's Bunny Farm in Dunlap, Iowa if you have a chance because the kids loved it!

Thanks again Bob and Aunt Sue!!!!
