Hat: Check. Sunscreen: Check. Tennies: Check. Music: Check. We are off to Old MacDonald with our Mom’s group! Oh, yes, did I bring my stroller to carry a pumpkin? Nope. Did I bring extra water? Nope. Ok, so I’m not completely prepared, but we arrived early enough that it was not too busy, and I figured we could get some help.
As usual, the car ride is a karaoke party. Tot and I sing along to Laurie Berkner songs like “We are the Dinosaurs, I’m Gonna Catch you, There’s a Mouse in my Toolbox, The Cookie Bakers of the Night..” It’s one big songfest. Good thing nobody can hear me but Tot!
Arrival time: 9:04. Wow! How many acres is this place? It’s Old West Disneyland!
HI MOMS and Kiddos!!!
We are ready. First stop: Pony Rides! Cricket, the pony is a great sport, because Tatum cried for a few moments when she first plopped down. Is this going to hold me? She’s thinking I’m sure. Plus her helmet was flopping all over the place. I held her steady on the pony the whole time and she was so brave. If it wasn’t for the floppy top, she’d be a star on that Cricket!
After realizing she couldn’t reach the pedals…
Hello Mr. Goat!
More animals to see now….finally a nice little one. Whatcha got in your hand?
Let’s go this way to see the….
Pig Sheep, goats..
and..oh, now he wants some love!
Ok..enough of the petting thing. Let’s go where the action is! There’s GOLD down here in these parts!
Painted gold rocks. Hmmm.
OK, so now, where was that pumpkin patch? On the way to the hayride, we got distracted with a carpet covered bull and lasso. Ride ’em cowgirl!
An opportunity to show our strength. Tatum could barely lift the tool to test it.
I of course wanted to show my strength (LOL) but…oh look! There it is!!! We found the hayride. We got lucky with a hayride almost all to ourselves so we could chat with the driver. Lovely ol’ chap.
To the pumpkins we go!
This one will work. C’mon kiddo, it’s 95 degrees in October. Let’s pick one!Yahoo! On the way back, more distraction. All I can say here is Thank God for indoor plumbing. Say goodbye to the ducks and hello to our cool car. The shower is the first stop when we get in the house. Thank you Ol’ MacDonald for a “HAY”PPY Day!
