Fox Hollow Farm

Mike, Emily, Graysen, and I spent a couple of hours at this place, and it's so neat.

It's planned to look like a real farm with barns and animal pens and a pumpkin patch, but there are other things to interest children (and adults), like the maze, a couple of bouncy houses, and pony rides.  There is also on the second floor of the barn a huge bin of shelled corn for children to jump in and play around.  It was too crowded for Graysen to get in there, but one day she can enjoy it.

There are horses, cows, goats. sheep, and pigs in the outside pens along with chickens, roosters, and peacocks running around everywhere.  There are bunny rabbits and cats and kittens in cages in the barn

When we got there, Graysen was too busy looking at and pointing to other children to notice pumpins or stay still for a picture.  She did better on the way out.

I don't have too much time, so I'll just post a bunch of pictures I took that day that are pretty self-explanatory.




Looking for chickens - bok-boks.














 Watching the cats and kittens was so much fun.


Until two of them started to fight.  Guess that kind of living situation kind of takes it's toll on cat moods.


We wanted to spend the afternoon here.






 Graysen had been in a bouncy house before and loved it but not so much this time.  Just a little crawling around with another little boy.  I think she liked it better when it was full of children.


Mom had a pretty good time though.



 Goats were not so charming this time around.  They were a little big - and chewed your hands and shirts.











 We were trying to figure out how we could copy this room.






Yay, a slide without a big of big kids on it.











This is the interactive pen where you could actually get in the pen with the animals - old and lazy ones.



Emily and I laughed at this chicken with the dirty legs.  She never stopped running and pecking.



The best part of the day for Graysen - and the only one to cause tears - when we made her leave the wagon pulling and go home.






We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and enjoyed every part of it.
