Cherry Crest Farms

Jason was post-call on Thursday and as a super special surprise, he was given Friday off of work. I decided that I didn't want to miss out on some great family time, so I took some time off to work on my mental health. HA!
We went down the road about 45 minutes to a fun place called Cherry Crest Farms. It's was the best idea...I'm so happy that we went during the week. We pretty much had the place to ourselves, the weather was perfect and they had so much to do and explore.
The first stop for the day was the animals. They had goats, llamas, chickens, pigs, rabbits, ducks and a few other ones. The kids loved running around and peeking into the different sections at the animals. Barrett loved being tall enough, on his tip toes, to peek over the fence.

The jumping pillow and the slides were definitely Amelia's favorite! She loved the huge bouncy pillow...she was actually able to get some pretty good air!
Amelia wasn't tall enough to go down the slide by herself so we took turns walking up this steep hill to the top of the slide. I think we went down the slide 6-7 times and each time we screamed all the way down.
There was also a section full of fun "carnival type" games. Barrett loved playing with all the balls, Amelia loved swinging the hammer and Jason and myself loved getting a little competitive with the different sporting challenges. The weather warmed up a little bit at this point so we ended up changing their outfits.
Our last stop of before we left for the day was the small wagon ride through the corn field. We even managed to get Nannie on the ride.
 
We had so much fun on the ride...everyone enjoyed the wagon ride and we were all a little bummed when it was over. We were at the farm for FOUR hours! We explored every section of the farm and had such a great time. The kids were sound asleep the second we loaded up in the car...they ran all over that farm.
I love unexpected fun-filled days with the family!
