A wonderful day at Hee Haw Farms
Saturday, Jon, the kids, and I set off to a wonderful afternoon at Hee Haw Farms. It has become a family tradition that we do every fall. There is lots of fun activities for the kids to do, it is very low key and we feel a little closer to nature surrounded by all of the farm animals.
First we ventured off into the corn maze, it didn't take us very long, we must be experts I guess; actually we just tried hard not to go too deep into the maze knowing that the kids get bored of walking after a while.
The kids then enjoyed playing in a pit full of corn kernels. They thought it was fun to make snow angels. And after launched corn, with a corn launcher believe it or not.
We also got to feed and pet several animals including an enormous pig called Leroy who is the biggest pig I have ever seen.
I even found a little kitten, Julien and I both wanted to take him home. Good thing we live in Wymount otherwise the decision would have been harder to make.
Julien and Logan loved showing off their amazing super hero jumps on the hay jump.
Jon had fun teaching the kids how to lasso, and rope cows. The boys got pretty good at it. Of course, they were standing just a couple of feet away, but they still felt a great sense a accomplishment.
Racing with the pedal tractors. I think Jon enjoyed it a lot!
We did a lot that day, but we ended it the best way possible, a nice hay ride, pulled by a tractor (a little bumpy, but very relaxing), followed by a delicious Italian meal at a very nice restaurant called La Vigna, Julien said it was the best pizza he had ever had, and it really was.
