Fun down on the farm for Kids Meet Kids at Honingham
It was a weekend of contrasts, with Saturday dogged by showers and Sunday living up to its name as the sun beat down.
They say never work with children or animals but a farm combined the two for its annual family fun day.
While the weather was mixed hundreds flocked to Fielding Cottage, at Honingham, to see kids, lambs, calves, piglets, chicks and ducklings as part of the annual Kids Meet Kids day.
The fun day was an opportunity for children to get up close and personal with some of the newest arrivals on the farm.
Sam Steggles, who runs the farm, said: 'It has been really good.

'People can come and learn and get up close and personal with the animals, which they might not be able to do normally.
'Saturday was a bit wet but we had a lot of people come and they seemed to enjoy themselves.'
There was also food and refreshments from local producers including Aisla's Fudge, with some made from goat's milk, Algy's Popcorn, Norfolk Brewhouse and Dann's Norfolk Farmhouse Ice Cream.
There were also bouncy castles and pedal tractors to keep the two legged youngsters, the ones without wings at least, occupied.
Louise Hacker, 35, from Carlton Colville, took her daughter Grace, three, to meet the kids.
She said: 'It is absolutely brilliant because I think its nice for children to understand where the products that they eat come from.
'I think it is important that children get familiar with farm life. We are not particularly urban but I'm sure a number of children don't understand where things come from.
'It is wonderful to see so many children enthralled by the kids.'
Fielding Cottage was also selling its own wares which include award winning goats' cheese, billy burgers and a range of goat-based skin care products.
The farm was also asking for children's suggestions for names for the new arrivals.
