Recently I mentioned that we had visited a local petting farm/adventure park. We had such a good time I thought I would share some of the pictures I took. I love our little days out just the three of us. Of course they would be much better if Daddy was there too.
We started our day with a visit to see the animals. Little Mr particularly liked the goats.
Where ever we go at the moment he is always keen to read the map. The great thing about this farm is that the map it very child friendly and he could easily pick out where he wanted to go next.
After the animals we headed towards the other play activities. First stop was a spot of miniature golf. Tricky for a three year old but turns out even trickier for me, Little Mr was giving me a run for my money.
One of Little Mr’s favourite parts is the tractor enclosure. He loves hooking and unhooking the trailers along with filling it with’diesel’. As it was half term there were older children to contend with and Little Mr was rather upset when a bigger child came and told him to get off his tractor that he had ever so patiently waited for. So parental involvement (or maybe the teacher in me) was needed.
After our tractor fun we headed into the picnic enclosure. I had brought a few snacks and Little Miss’s food but purchased mine and Little Mr’s there. I wasn’t organised enough in the morning and wanted to get a move on, making a proper picnic would have just held us up. Well that’s my excuse anyway.
After our lunch we headed to the sandpit. The only picture I got was of my feet. Probably because I can’t relax while he is in there. Sand gets everywhere, it is one of my pet hates. I hate the feel of it when it is in your socks. Therefore Little Mr was swiftly change into wellies. I know I should relax about this a little more, there were plenty of children running around in it barefoot. There was even one child filling her shoes with sand!! I think I just have sandpit phobia.
Once we finally escaped the sandpit Little Miss had a nap whilst Little Mr played in the park.
He loves this big red tractor. He always has done, I remember he once sat on it for a full 30 minutes happy as could be.
Next stop were the inflatable pillows. Little Mr had so much fun bouncing around. We are sockless here as it meant he could bounce higher apparently.
Last stop was to see a sheep ‘have his hair cut.’ Little Mr was enthral led as he loves getting his hair cut and often talks about the girl who cuts it for us when we drive past. He thought it was hilarious that a sheep was being sheared.
We had a brilliant day and headed home with two very sleepy but content children. Before leaving Little Mr added his mark to the large mural, and I visited the farm shop to stock up on a few yummy treats.
