Kuiper's Farm

We took our annual trip to Kuiper's Farm a few weeks ago. We go each year with Ed, Meg, Scarlett, and this year, baby Harry! The apple orchard was closed due to the rough Spring we had, but we still had a great time.

We started our day with some apple cider donuts, a Kuiper's Farm specialty. And Ben and Scarlett were both very excited by the apple juice in the apple-shaped containers. Those two little bites are all Ben ate of his donut. Still not a sweets-eater.

After breakfast, we headed out to do some playing.

Ben's face in this next photo would make you think I am torturing him. I was going to delete it, but it makes me laugh because, as usual, asking Mike to get a few pictures resulted in one unusable photo. Way to go, hon!

Even the big kids (Ed and Mike) had fun on this giant slide.

Baby Harry stayed cuddled up and cozy and was so good the entire time!

Ben's favorite activity had to be his ride on the "choo choo tractor," as he called it.

And he loved his ride on Silver. He was a little apprehensive of the pony rides at Blackberry Farms this summer, so I was surprised how happily he rode the pony this time.

Next it was off to feed the goats.

A quick stop to clown around, then off to the petting zoo.

By this point, Ben was tired, hungry and grumpy, so we wrapped it up by selecting a few pumpkins. Ben was obsessed with pulling the wagon, but by the time we loaded up all our pumpkins it was heavy and he was grumpy and some tears may have been involved.

But all in all, a very fun day. See you next year, Kuiper's!
