Farm Country

I got back from an overnight YW's retreat to Midway Saturday morning and my "To-do" list for the day went out the window. Staying up until 2 am Friday night sitting in the natural springs hot tub (with feet of snow all around us!) and playing games was probably the culprit. Saturday was an awesome day of relaxing and hanging out. We were glad when Pattie invited us to go to Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point with her and her kids so we could get out in the nice weather. Pattie describes the day perfectly in her blog. I wish I could just copy and paste! But here's a few shots from the day.


We rode the horses . . . Kyler was pretty disappointed that he forgot to wear all of his cowboy clothes. He only had his boots on.




Pattie and Owen . . .


Ella and Kacin looking at the ducks . . .


All 4 kids hanging out . . . and running back and forth, up and down the ramp . . .

It was kind of embarrassing that our kids were all scrounging around for corn to feed the animals. We were lame--no one had quarters. They picked handfuls off the sidewalk and grass near every corn machine.

In the almost 2 hours we were there, the kids did sit for a few minutes . . . just long enough to munch on a snack . . .

We joined Pattie, Ella, and Owen at Cafe Rio for dinner. You gotta love the salads.


We went to Target later to get a few things and found these barns and farm animals in the $1 section. It was the perfect ending to our day at the farm. And hopefully now Kacin will learn that a pig is not a cow (Yes, I just found out that he doesn't know all of his animals quite yet . . . he'll get it soon though . . .)

We love farm country so much! Cheyenne could spend hours there. And in all the years we've been going there, my kids have always scrounged for corn off the ground!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the beautiful weather.
