Big Ole Red Barn

Every time my brother sees me he asks if I'm enjoying "retirement". Saturday was a mix of productive retirement and Bravo tv.

Last weekend, I made a trip to World's End in Hingham, and it didn't disappoint. This weekend, I went to Weir River Farm in Hingham. It also didn't disappoint, but in a very different way. 

I've been wanting to go to WRF for quite awhile. Pretty much anytime you need to leave my hometown and go anywhere, you need to drive past this farm on your way to Route 3. A bright red barn sits atop a big hill and there are farm animals that roam the pasture. It's the epitome of picturesque. For reals.

Saturday was Open Barnyard Day at WRF. If this seems like an activity that would appeal to preschoolers and cute little blonde children... as opposed to 28 year old single females.... you'd be right. I was certainly in the minority. But whatever, that didn't hold me back.
Highlights of the farm:
  • llama named Penelope
  • crazy wide sheep ... that I think are pregnant (or just oddly fat)
  • Fergie the 900 pound momma pig (and her 8 piglets that weigh 700 lbs each)
  • climbing rocks with little brother
  • all the little blonde children
There were these adorably blonde pre-teens that watched over Fergie and her babes. It only got slightly awkward when I tried to figure out how Fergie got pregnant when I didn't see any male pigs around. The cute blonde girls (in Hunter boots no less) informed me that they bring in a pig to do the deed.... and his name is Sir Robert.
You'd think after all this fresh air I wouldn't have eaten *nearly* an entire box of Kraft Mac and Cheese.... but I did. What else was I supposed to eat while I watched hours of M.A.S.H. and Bravo tv? Fruit? I don't think so.
