Yep, we went back. This time with my sister-in-law, her husband and their two kids. We ate lunch once we arrived, then we were off to explore the kids’ fun area where we learned that there was a new baby goat in their midst (gasp!) – could not wait.
There were tons of things to see and do and the kids (big and small) had a great time. There were lots of animals, beautiful scenery and growing crops (pumpkins are coming!), hay bales for the kids to play in, a spider web to climb, a nice lookout platform with great views over the escarpment (we actually saw the CN Tower – it was a clear day!), tractor “bikes” to roll around on, did I mention the goats?, an informative wagon ride that toured the farm and surrounding irrigation ponds, and more! We had a great time – it was a gorgeous day, sunny and bright. We stopped by the market on the way out and home we went for a Hawaiian themed dinner party. :)
These chickens were hilarious – you pressed a button and they would tell a joke.
Lots of sunflowers made the view really “country cozy”.

I couldn’t help myself…I hate spiders…except when they wear slippers and rollerblades. :)

This little guy was my favourite :)
Oh my goodness…

More pumpkins :) And more sunflowers.
The sunflowers were so tall! Much taller than me!

Bunnies are so cute
