For the last few years, my Mom and I have made it a tradition to take the kids to Cedar Hill Farms while Matt and my Dad are away on their annual guys' trip. It gives us something fun to do on Saturday and usually wears the kids out! This year we were lucky enough to be there at the same time as some of our friends too.
The first pig races were getting ready to start when we arrived so we made our way there to get a seat with our buddies.
After the pig races, the kids jumped in line to be in the front of the tractor ride.
For tradition's sake, we had to take photos by the pumpkin growth chart. Thomas couldn't even stand on his own his first time here!
With all the pumpkins and animals that the farm has to offer, my kids always love the play area the best. I don't blame them...huge tunnel slides, tire swings, tether ball, zip line...I enjoy it all too! We have learned that bringing a picnic lunch is the way to go and we set up at a table right by the play area so the kids can play and eat, play and eat.
We save the pumpkin patch for the end of our visit so we don't have to lug pumpkins around all day. The kids get to pick a pie pumpkin to take with the price of their admission.
Near the pumpkin patch is also a really cool wooden pirate ship play area that the kids like to climb on.
The weather warmed up after lunch so I was glad when we finally hopped on the trailer for a ride back to our car. The kids and I were all ready to head home for naps!
