connelley ranch is in beautiful napa -- only curse to my grown up status was that i couldn't stay and play in the napa valley after the trip, but since it's only about 20 minutes away (with traffic!), i know i can make it back any time. the ranch is the home to goats, sheep, chickens, and ducks as well as organic produce and huge composting vessels. the kids were a little nervous about the animals at first, but after a nice talk about POOP (to be referred to as manure) and the niceness of the animals, they dove right in!
