There is a local City Moms Blog here that posts about all things mom related but also posts about local stuff to do with our tots. They also host a monthly playdate. I've never gone to any of the playdates before, they're usually at a playground or park I'm unfamiliar with. I'm not too keen on taking the boys someplace unknown by myself the first time around. This month however, the playdate was scheduled for a farm closer to us & my sister, niece & nephew were able to join us for the fun :)
The boys & I set out bright & early for our adventure to the farm. My sister's kids sleep in (what's that?!) So they met up with us later.
We were greeted as we drove in by a mama horse & her baby, so cute! They were the first animals we went to see, right after we stopped to say hello to the orange barn cat.
He was a very friendly little foal, just 2 weeks old
Garren now wants a bunny, lol
The bigger horses were a little intimidating for Caden & Kellan, especially after the mama horse gave Garren a kiss (sniff) right on top of his head. The miniature horse was just their size though :)
The boys spotted a mount of sand & some play structures from across the farm & made a beeline for them!
The boys LOVED this slide made from a corrugated pipe! They just wanted to slide over & over again but as other kids arrived a line started to form. They were too excited to notice & kept just running up the stairs to slide without regard for all the other kids waiting, so I had to drag them away to do something else.
We visited with the pigs for a minute before noticing the hayride coming back around, so we headed to the gate for that.
The hayride started out in the cow pasture. The cows came right up & ate from the hay bails we were sitting on. The kids were all able to pet & feed the cows.
While we were on our hayride my sister called, they had just arrived so I had her meet us at the hayride & we went around on it again with my niece & nephew. We also saw more pigs on the hayride including a mama pig & a whole bunch of baby pigs. The boys were able to feed them too.
We ate lunch & everyone played some more! There was a corn box/pool that the boys all loved, cow train rides & a hamster wheel like game. I was actually quite surprised the boys went on the cow train ride by themselves, they've never gone on anything without one of us with them but they went & did great.
We ended with going back to see the horses since Chandler & Nadia hadn't seen them yet.
Chandler, Garren, Caden, Nadia & Kellan
The boys were super tired by then, we had been at the farm for nearly 4 hours & it was 2 hours past nap time. They had a lot of fun with their cousins though & loved the farm! They ask every couple of days if we're going to the farm again.
Kellan got his head stuck here, not really stuck, he just couldn't manage to get his head out himself. Caden was just mad that Kellan got to the pig before him, he waned to get his head stuck first, lol...
