Barnyard Boo

The weather started out terrible today, and it ended pretty bad too. Lot's of wind, rain, snow etc. But from around 330-430pm the skies were clear and the sun was shining so we put on our coats and drove out to Thanksgiving Point (about a 20min. drive) to check out some of their fun Halloween activities. We went to the Country Farm for the Barnyard Boo which has a lot of activities for younger kids. We started out with the pony rides, Charlie went on them twice, we tried to get Elisabeth to ride, she really wanted to before we got there, but if you couldn't tell from previous blogs, she's not one for change or trying new things, so when I put her on a pony she freaked out...instead we watched Char go around with Daddy. Afterwards we decorated pumpkin sugar cookies,they went bowling and did a bean bag toss,fished for toys,and Charles willingly got his face painted and helped milk a cow!

It looks like they had a lot of fun! What was the cost? It might be worth it to drive the half-hour depending on the cost.

WHAT FUN!

It was $5/person, and Char was too young to count so for the three of us it was $15. You're basically paying for a punch card that has 5 circles on each card that can get punched, so between our two kids they could participate in 15 activities, but they found a couple they really liked and just did those over and over again.

So cute! I'm glad you went and during the good hours of the day. I can't believe it. Charles is at least 22 years younger than I am and he has already milked a cow. Amazing. He is a lucky boy, and he probably doesn't even realize it.

I'm glad you guys got to get out for a bit and enjoy the festivities! By the way, I just watched the Story Time with Elisabeth and I was laughing so hard! And then afterwards I kept on repeating her favorite phrase with her same intonations (yes, out loud). At least Shaun thought it was funny but I'm not so sure about Fred. Anyways...what a funny, funny, cute, cute family you all are.
