With weather this beautiful in February, we had to get outside and enjoy it! Clients soaked up the sunshine last week with a few barnyard visitors: goats! 🌞
Brought in by a client's mom, the baby goats were fun for both clients and staff to play with. Bottlefeeding and cuddling ...these little cuties was definitely the highlight of the day!
