Here they got to use this catapult to launch tennis balls as far as they could. Of course, this was a huge hit with all the boys.
The owners of the farm called themselves Momma May and Daddy May. They were an older retired couple who live on the farm. They rent it out to schools and churches. They have a huge fairly new lodge that is great for church retreats. They seemed to be a sweet Christian couple. Momma May told the kids all about the Indians that may have lived nearby. She showed them some of the arrowheads that they had found. The kids found this fascinating and spent most of their lunch time hunting through all the rocks on the ground trying to find their own arrowheads.
Wouldn't be a farm without the farm animals. The kids got to go in and play with and pet them all they wanted. They had a donkey, goats, chickens, a turkey, a couple of camels, etc.
Hannah was quite brave. She seemed to love this little donkey.
Petting the camel.
One of my favorite parts of the whole day was when the kids got to go fishing. They had this little pond. All the way around it, they had fishing poles and stumps where each kid had their own place to fish. They gave them all pieces of hotdog and let them bait their own hooks. It was adorable. I love the pictures I got of Hannah. Lots of kids actually caught small fish. Hannah didn't, but she still really enjoyed it.
Next, they went to this swing contraption. One of the workers pushed it around and around winding it up and then she let go and the kids went around and around really fast while it went down. Cute idea!
Hannah's favorite part was the zip line. She was not afraid at all and couldn't wait to have her turn. Here she comes!
For the last center they had to hunt for little pumpkins in the hay. They were looking for the one white pumpkin. They all loved doing this.
Then they counted out loud all the pumpkins they found.
Finally, they all got to go down the slide.
I so enjoyed this day with just Hannah. She is such a sweetheart.
Each child got to pick a pumpkin to take home.
This was an AWESOME field trip!!! Highly recommend Family Farm!
