The day after Olivia's first birthday, I rounded up the family that was still in town (my sisters and mom, Jeremy's mom) and we all headed to Tilden Park in Berkeley. My friend Nicole has been telling me to check out the Little Farm for a couple years now. I must say that this place is so AWESOME!! I'm kinda pissed at myself for not going to this gem sooner!
They have goats and cows and sheep and rams and chickens and geese and two of the largest pigs i've ever seen! Its such a cool place to take kids, I can't wait to go back. And you know what the best part is, its FREE!!
After we got our fill of the farm animals and washed the smell of celery of our hands, we headed over to the steam train. Again this was awesome and again I am mad for not riding this sooner. Olivia loved the train and probably would have ridden it 5 more times if we had let her. I think she was a little freaked out when we went through the tunnel (see wide eyed picture below), but otherwise it is the perfect thing to do with a little one.
It was the perfect end to a perfect little girls perfect first birthday.
P.S. This is the amazing view of San Francisco from the Berkeley hills!
