Hee Haw Farms

Standard

Our first preschool field trip: Hee Haw Farms!

I guess I haven’t been to a lot of pumpkin patches, because this play area filled with dried corn rocked our world! Who knew?

Way better than a sand box! (Although we did find corn tucked away throughout the day, which is kind of how sand works when you’ve been playing in a sandbox for a while!)

Next we were off to a GIANT slide. It was a thrill for Alison and she went a million times.

Megan was very concerned. She didn’t cry and this was the whole of her facial expression going down… but this was her one and only try. Not her way of having a good time.

While the rest of the preschool group kept sliding, we spied this goat up on a pedestal. It was fun to figure out how he got up there, but even better to realize that we could feed him! We put a quarter into a goat pellet/food dispenser and then dumped it into a tin can on this pulley system. You’d crank and crank and your tin can would make it to the top and dump itself out. So clever!

Megan and Emily had a turn. This goat was so smart- he knew his food was coming and tried to eat it before it could dump out. He was so excited!

The crank was huge, but each of the girls were determined to do it by themselves!

Now we’re off to jump around on hay bales.

I’m not sure if it’s a tiny maze, or just a place to jump around on.

99.99% of children went with the jumping idea!

Off to the petting area. These two are so cute!

I stayed with these little guys since these animals invoked excitement and terror in the blink of an eye!

Hay ride! And tired kids. We’ve been here for hours by now and we’re all exhausted.

Cutie pie!

You can see the tired! But we weren’t done! We still had to hike into the middle of the fields, pick pumpkins and carry them back to the van. Which meant that I carried three pumpkins and tried to convince three very tired girls that they could make it to the van! We were so thirsty!DSC_0175 small

Final picture of the whole group before heading home! We had such a great day- all senses were used, all energies were spent, and there was definitely a sense of adventure with all of the new things that we tried!
