Trip to Cox Farms

28 Oct

We took advantage of the great weather and Aunt Leigh being off work this week to take a trip out to Cox Farms. I prefer to go during the week because weekends are a madhouse. Also, I have discovered going around 2pm means the school trips have cleared out too. I guess other kids take naps because the place emptied out for us.

We went last year and Miss H remembered the slides.

Of course the biggest one was her favorite and she has to go in a lane all to herself.

I am at the bottom of the picture.

Then Aunt Leigh went with her several times.

I got a video too.

She tried out the smaller slides.

And, then saw some other kids riding backwards so she had to try that too.

After the big goats at the ice cream filled with goat snacks, she found one that was more manageable. Also, she wanted to bring him home.

Another fun year at Cox Farms!

And, now we wait for Hurricane Sandy….

Cox Farms!

11 Oct

Kerry and I took today off of work to extend our weekend. Neither of us have taken that much time off lately so we are trying to squeeze in days when we can. We decided to take Miss H to Cox Farms and it was fantastic!

I think the perfect time to go is during the week because it is really calm. Everyone tells us that the weekend can be mayhem and that is totally understandable given all the activities. We rode down many, many slides, took a hayride, played with some goats, milked a cow, tried to pet some chickens, climbed over hay bales and through hay bale tunnels. It was exhausting for all of us.

We saw dinosaurs, witches, a space ship, some aliens, a train, an elephant on our hay ride and it ended with a tunnel of bubbles and lights. I think the bubbles were the highlight.

The “BIG PIG” had a lot of babies.

We tried out a few of the slides next.

Then it was onto the huge slide. Miss H is at the very top. And, she wanted to go by herself.

Reluctantly, she agreed to go with Kerry on this one. She clapped and shrieked with excitement all the way down. Our little daredevil just wanted to go again. I think we went down every slide 5+ times and some were more like 10 times each.

Then, it was off to feed the goats. I loved that they gave you the goat food in an ice cream cone.

Then, Miss H and Kerry went in to see the goats up close. A swarm of goats this time.

I think Cox Farms might be our day after Columbus Day tradition 🙂

Miss H would like to go back tomorrow.
