Over the Mother's Day weekend we went down to Janene's mom's place along Hood Canal, in Washington. One of the favorite things to do there is to visit the local "farm stand and nursery" - it's great for everything from fresh produce to local ice cream to plants and flowers... to all the animals they have for people to visit. During the harvest season they have the requisite corn maze, pumpkin patch, hayrides, and harvest fun. It's part of a working farm, so they have animals that transition in and out, too. Check out their website and Facebook
Ben, in particular, is such an incredible homebody. He just loves being at home, being peaceful and calm, and doing things as a family. He LOVES the farm, and farm animals, and talks about when we live on a farm (which is great, as it's one of our goals, and - in particular - Chris' passions).
So, naturally, when we go to Hunter Farms, we always go visit the animals. This season we managed to catch some newly born babies, which Ben (who is addicted to all things "cute") truly adores.
And, of course, we always have to get an ice cream cone...from Olympic Mountain Ice Cream
