It actually wasn't that bad. We went on Saturday so we could meet up with some families from my Asian Mommies group, but we got there early since we had heard that it gets completely insane by mid-morning on weekends. The kids had tons of fun despite missing their morning nap, and the outing provided great photo ops, which is really the only reason to go to something like this. Also, I have to say that having the mini-van made the 40-minute drive each way quite pleasant. We left by noon, laughing at all the folks who were backed up for miles trying to get into the full parking lot like it was a U2 concert. Suckers.

They were ambivalent about the petting zoo. They kind of liked the baby goats, but they didn't want to feed them. They loved the chickens and ducks. They hated this one bastard sheep that kept getting in their faces and trying to steal our bag of food.
