Queens Farm

One of my favorite Seinfeld episodes was the one where George asks Kramer if he wants to come to Queens to visit his parents. Kramer replies “Sure, I love the country.”

The truth is that Queens is pretty urban. But it was once the country — it was farmland. And it is still home to the city’s only working historical farm: The Queens County Farm Museum.  This weekend they are having a little carnival.  Since the weather was so great we decided to head over and check it out.

We had so much fun!  Maddie loved the animals — especially the various birds (think chicken, ducks, etc.).  In fact we learned that she knows the word “Bird!” as she said it repeatedly.  She also saw pigs, which she liked until they came a little too close, and goats.

Here’s a great picture of Madeline and Preston … Many more can be found at the usual spot on Picasa.
