Today we went to Frying Pan Park, a farm park run by Fairfax County. It's actually quite cool and has lots of animals - horses, chickens, cows, goats, sheep, pigs (including lots of baby animals) - and at a perfect price, free (well, compliments of Fairfax County's exorbitant property taxes, I'm sure). It's also quite close as it's in Herndon, about 20-25 minutes away. We were supposed to be meeting some friends. I found a couple of the group, but the main pack eluded us. Still, we roamed around and saw the animals despite intermitent rain drops. Andy seemed to like the goats best, especially since they were so friendly to him. He also really liked the small tractors they have nailed down for kids to climb all over. He definitely seems geared (hah) toward anything mechanical. He loves lights, playing with the radio and, of course, the TV remote.
