This weekend I went to a historical farm with my son and nieces and nephews. There were 6 kids total ages 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 1. We went with my parents and sister, so there were 4 adults. At first I thought it would be a handful. I was not that interested in the farm, it was OK but not where I would have chosen to spend my Saturday afternoon.
But once we got there, it was a blast. All of the kids were so into it. The farm was set in the 1860's and had all the authentic things and dress to go along with it. The kids loved to pump the water into buckets. They were psyched to kneed the bread and cook it. They were amazed at all the animals. They could not wait to water the plants. It was SO FUN!
If it had just been me and another adult, I would not have had the adventure that we all had. I would have taken in the sites and been on my way, but we really got to experience the farm because all the kids wanted to take part. It was a GREAT day!
It is great to see things through the eyes of our children! It keeps us young!
