A Day at the Farm

I am a member of a Williston toddler group on Facebook and they have such fun activities every few weeks. One of the other moms in the group invited everyone over for a tour of her farm. It was really interesting and the kids liked it, too.

We got to open the grain bins and then see the different kinds of grain. There wasn't a bucket for each child, and not to mention any names, but some people's kids were having breakdowns about not getting a bucket.

Can we wrap this up so we can go see the cows?

She was telling the kids not to climb in because grain acts a lot like water. It was kind of freaking me out since I had just read an article about people drowning in grain bins.

First order of business after digging in hay? Stick your fingers in your mouth, of course!

Carissa came with us and she carried Declan the whole time. They coordinated outfits and everything.

We got to see a baby cow and its very protective mother, play with grain some more, then eat homemade hummus. We also got a small bag of chickpeas and lentils to bring home. It was such a fun morning at the farm!
