We had Ella’s birthday party this morning at Collingwood Children’s Farm. It had rained most of the previous night and still looked grey this morning but luckily for Ella the rain held off for a few hours and she ran around the farm happily with her little friends. Erin, our host, took us to milk the cow, for a ride around the farm on the tractor and for a tour of feeding the animals before we stopped for birthday tea & cake. Here are some pictures.
