Weekends with Gage at the Farm

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Melinda of West Metro Mommy.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Melinda’s site.

Last week I took Gage to the farm.

gagefarm1The stroller lasted about 20 minutes.

gagefarm3He got to pet a pony.  And got sneezed on by same pony.  The girl said, “It’s all right.”  Um, no not really.  We both had horse residue on ourselves til we got home.

gagefarm2He also touched the big cow.  Progress.  On our first trip he was too scared to get close.

gagefarm4Riding the tractor around was a big hit.

gagefarm5He studied up on windmills and solar power.

gagefarm6He pushed big tomatoes around.  He doesn’t like to brag but he’ll tell you, “I’m strong.”

gagefarm7By far his favorite was the big train near the entrance.  We had to make several trips back to watch it during our visit.  It is a cool train.

gagefarm8We had lots more fun, but no amount could be enough.  I broke the news that we were leaving when he was driving the tractor.  After 10 more minutes of playing we actually left 🙂

Lake Farm Park is very kid friendly and much more accessible and relaxed than the zoo.

    Those are great pictures. He is much more comfortable around the animals than during his first visit. That last photo is very sad:(

    I had to laugh at the horse residue. My daughter and I just came home from the animal shelter covered in cat residue (one even sneezed and splattered my glasses). Farm visits are awesome for kids, even if it DOES have to end eventually!

    What fun! It looks like Gage had a great time.

    My husband never wants to take the stroller in when we go to the zoo or some such park. I usually give in and we skip it–and then regret it. The few times we’ve taken the stroller, like with Gage, Mouse ends up not wanting to ride in it. We can’t win! Haha!

    How fun!! It looks like you all had a great day! Gage is such a cutie and getting so big. And very, VERY strong! (obviously) Sometimes I miss trips like that with my kids but now I get to do it with the grandkids. I definitely don’t miss the tears (mine and theirs) and fights. It’s all worth it though and you and Gage will always treasure it. 🙂
