Last weekend we went to spend some time with Mickey in Raleigh. The past two times we have gone to visit we have spent the majority of the time in the car riding around looking at neighborhoods and trying to get a feel for the area. So this time we decided we were going to do something fun, and that is just what we did:
We spent the afternoon on Saturday in Morrisville on the farm. It was fun for everyone! They had some attractions geared for the whole family, and some for just the kiddos. We were all able to enjoy a hayride,
and Mackaylan loved jumping on the hay!
There was also a small petting zoo with goats and a calf. The girls loved petting the baby goats.
With 3 different jump houses it was hard for the girls to pick a favorite, but I liked the farm one because I had never seen one like it before.
Mackaylan also enjoyed climbing around in the “spider web” and playing a variety of other games.
And of course, the day would not be complete without face painting!
This picture sums up the Raleigh area… farmland on one side of the road and apartments, townhouses, condos, on the other. It is so unique! I really like it because it has all of the conveniences (Is that a word?!) of the big city, but it still feels like home with many rural areas that are close by.
We always have a fun time when we go to visit Mickey, but I would have to say this was our best visit yet!
We actually went back to Green Acres on Sunday to try out the corn maze and to go on a pony ride. It started raining when we attempted the maze on Saturday and the guy was nice enough to return our tickets so that we could come back and try again at a later date. I’m not sure what was more challenging- finding the hidden check-in stations in the maze or keeping up with a very active who insisted on carrying the flag that was 3x as big as she is! Nonetheless, we all enjoyed experiencing this “first” together!
All week Lydia keeps talking about riding the pony and letting me know that she is ready to go back to the “hay torn!” (All I can think is she is shortening “hayride” and “corn maze!”)
What a great start to my favorite season of the year- fall!
