Liam and I joined two other boys his age at Clark’s Elioak Farm to feed, pet, and bark at the animals. Or at least that’s what Liam did. His favorite was definitely the goat, who from his perspective looked a lot like Jill’s dog Alfie. We also went on a hayride, but by then the boys were beat, so they sat through it in silence.
