Three hours chasing Meghan around a farm.

 

Last weekend Meghan went to a party at Stowe Farm Orchard.  I had never been there.  No idea that it even existed.  But she had a great time.

It was H-O-T hot out there.  Meghan is a sweaty kid to begin with so her head was sopping wet by the time we left.  There was a lot to keep the kids busy there.  My goal was to get out of there before it became necessary for either one of us to use the one port-a-potty available.

The first thing Meghan did was make a beeline for the pen of puppies for sale.

There was a hayride for the kids.  I could not get Meghan to look at the camera if my life depended on it.

The farm has an area where the kids can do their own mining for pretty stones.  We came home with a bag full of rocks.  I’m not sure what I am supposed to do with them but the water did help cool her down a bit.

The one activity Meghan had been looking forward too since the day she got the invite was the pony ride.

That was NOT a pony.  I think I know a horse when I see one.

I am always looking for a new place to apple pick and noticed on their website they have apple picking. Did you like it there? I organize about 20 people, so I try to do some investigation first.
