One other thing we did as a family while we were in Michigan was visit The Critter Barn. We thought it would be fun, since Joash is starting to like animals. They were also holding a live Nativity, so we thought that would be cool too.
The first animal we visited was Joash's favorite, cats. He loves cats. We have some nice ones are our farm and in the summer he would crawl after them. All of the cats at The Critter Barn we super nice and Joash loved petting them all.
I am looking forward to taking Joash back to The Critter Barn when he is a bit older. I think he will like it even more then.
