A day at the farm

Today was exhausting. In a mostly good way.

It didn’t start out great. K and I were loading the boys into the car when I realized I couldn’t find my bag. 

Guess what was in that bag?

Yep, my keys and my cell phone.

Hubby was working and I don’t know my mother-in-law’s number off the top of my head. I was so pissed at myself. Luckily we had everything else we needed, so we played in the backyard for a bit. Then I decided I would try to break in to the house. I succeeded. Yay! But also scary. If I can break in, then someone else could too. I am very glad Sawyer is here. He is an excellent watch dog and doesn’t like anyone on his turf.

After that fiasco we were finally on the road. We were on our way to visiting the Wise Family Farm. The drive there was uneventful. We got the boys out of the car, this involved waking Peanut up. He fallen asleep about 10 minutes prior to us arriving. He wasn’t pleased, but I tossed him into the Ergo and up to the ticket window we went.

They don’t take credit cards, we had no cash. . . . *sigh* Back into the car. Again, not a happy Peanut. We drove around and found an ATM and then drove some more and found a gas station. Then we drove some more and ended up back at the farm.

Yay! It was finally time to have some fun.

We started our visit with checking out the baby cow (yes, I know it is called calf). Peanut was happily mooing at him and Munchkin was hiding behind me. I realized I forgot the camera in the car. I can’t go anywhere without the camera. It is like a permanent accessory now. Munchkin decided that he now wanted his hat, he had refused to wear it when I offered. I told him to stay with K while I went to the car, but he was not having it. So I had to drag him with me to the car. He kept telling me he didn’t want to go fast. We made it to the car. Got camera, got hat, and made it back inside the farm.

Things started looking up for Munchkin when we discovered the little playground. I mean who can resist slides, tire swings, and a fake cow to milk? ;p

It really was a great place. We played for a while and then watched the tractor pulling the wagons full of people. The boys lit up every time they saw it. They just love anything with wheels. We ate some food, listened to live music, checked out the animals again, and walked through the mazes. They have a couple of different mazes. There is a small corn maze, a sunflower maze and a large corn maze. We did the two smaller ones. Munchkin got to lead the way in the small corn maze and we played chase games in the sunflower maze. The large corn maze would have been a bit much for us.

We finally had our turn on the tractor. The boys were thrilled. I think it was probably the highlight of their day. The tractor ride brought us to the pumpkin patch and we got to pick our own pumpkins. K and I had a good time walking through the pumpkin patch, but Peanut kept getting tripped up on the vines and Munchkin was thirsty.

Munchkin got to use a port-a-potty for the first time. He was very confused by the fact that we didn’t need to flush the toilet.

Before we left we picked some cotton, zinnias, and sunflowers. They let you take home a bouquet of flowers. I thought that was cool. Some of those sunflower heads were humongous!

And now for some pictures 🙂
