On a bright, January Sunday, we visited Ten Apple Farm in Gray for an hour-long goat hike in the woods. Owners Margaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz and their young daughters—Charlotte, Bea and Sadie—care for a herd of Alpine dairy goats that live in a big red barn attached to the family’s 1901 clapboard farmhouse.

CP#1 broke her right foot over Easter, so our school vacation plans are limited to places we can easily get around. We’re considering a trip into Boston to visit the Franklin Park Zoo. MP, who is in need of warmth and flowers, is especially intrigued by the indoor tropical rainforest. And the zoo also provides wheelchairs to guests on a first come, first served basis, which will be a great help to our injured girl.

If Boston doesn’t make it into our plans, we may try going local to the Maine Wildlife Park. MP and DP haven’t been there with the kids since they were toddlers, so it will be fun to see the park again.

This Saturday, April 18, it’s Family Saturday and there’s a free dance concert in the evening, too. If your kids are too small to brave the museum, the campus is a perfect place to explore or ride bikes.

Does Father’s Day seem to sneak up on you every year? If you’re searching for ideas, here are a few last minute gifts for Dad:

Local Sprits
Cold River Vodka has a loyal following, but did you know the Freeport distillery also makes gin? Toast the man of the house with a G & T, and let him enjoy a few minutes to sip and enjoy.

Homemade Tee
The kids surprised DP with a Viva El Papa shirt one Father’s Day. This year, we’re planning on another Team Potato original. MP found this letterpress card in Portland and was inspired. A yellow T-shirt and some black fabric paint should do the trick.

This card will make a fun T-shirt design
