Mommy and Me Monday: Down on the Farm

Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn at Really, Are You Serious?

We had a pretty busy weekend over here! Saturday we had our friends the B6 over for dinner. We celebrated Oktoberfest this month and had sausage, sauerkraut, spaetzle and apple strudel. This was my first time making my Mom's sauerkraut recipe, and I am happy to report my marriage survived the smell.

Yesterday we went with a group from GOMOTT to Green Meadows Farm. Now, let me preface this with the fact that I am not a "hey let me get in there with the animals" kind of person, and I survived AND had fun. Each group gets a tour guide to take them around the huge area and tell you about the animals. First, we went on a hayride around the property. Aaron was in seventh heaven because it was being pulled by a tractor.

Then we got to see all the animals including: llamas, pigs, ducks, baby chicks, goats, sheep, a zorse (half horse half zebra, for real), rabbits, guinea pigs and birds (in cages thankfully). We also got to go on a train ride around the property too.

After seeing all of that they kids got to go on a pony ride. I thought Jill was going to lose her mind. She was all smiles the entire time! Aaron loved it too!

We had so much fun at the farm and really want to go back because there were some things we just didn't get to see. The kids were so pooped by the time we got to the ponies we decided to call it a day.
