I was in Kansas recently, helping my oldest daughter get settled back at K-State. It was also a great time to visit with friends and family.
One of the first days I was back home, we visited a dairy. Since my girls are "city girls," my mom thought it'd be fun for them to see some cows close up. Visiting cows was not on my girls' list of things to do while on vacation (their idea of sightseeing is to visit shopping malls), but they went along for the fun. We were warmly welcomed at Hildebrand Farms and invited to go visit the cows in their pens. (I had to remind the girls to stand upwind, not downwind!) It was great fun, and I'll bet those cows have never been photographed so much!
This little calf craved attention:
She even offered free kisses:

It was a great little visit to Hildebrand Farms. Although we didn't get a chance to try the ice cream, we did buy some delicious fresh cheese curds. The ice cream will have to wait til our next trip....
