An action packed day kept us warm ...

Our first adventure was to head down the back of the farm where everyone could run around and be noisy for a while.  On the way, we stopped to play right near the piglets, this was such a wonderful spot to stop as the piglets came right up to us and even managed to find their way out of the their pen to come and be playing where we were. I did let the farmers know that the little cheeky piglets could get out ... it was such a wonderful moment for the kids, as it is very often hard to get close to the piglets.  They each had a few pats and off the piglets went to play and dig in the mud. Quite similar to what we did next.

We stayed there for a bit longer while Taj started playing a beat on the drum next to us, Ella joined in next and then came Archie.  They had a great little rhythm going, look out three little musicians in the making!

We went off to the witch’s garden next ... we actually spent most of our day down there with a picnic. In between so many creative games were played. We had Taj and Luke on a mission to keep the baddies away while Ella, Eden and Archie made a few houses for worms. Next thing Archie was asking if he could go to Ella’s birthday and before we knew it was everyone’s birthday and we made a very yummy chocolate cake with a candle in it and took it in turns to sing happy birthday to each of us!

Next it was a game of Eden being the dad and Taj and Ella being the babies, while Luke kept watch to protect everyone. A great day of creative and imaginative games, along with a visit the calves and also had a cuddle with the guinea pigs.  Then all of a sudden it was time to go home!

I love that no matter what the weather we always have a wonderful day down at the farm.
