Growing Out On A Limb

Hatfield Farm in December


Every time we drive to bedford, we go by Hatfield Farm… the sign makes it look like horseback riding lessons, a wedding venue, etc.  All things that make my hayfever flare up.  But with the wannabe cowboys in town (nana and papa), I looked a little closer and found a christmas special… bouncy houses, mechanical bull, hotdog lunch, wagon/sleigh ride, petting zoo.  It seemed like the perfect thing to do before nana and papa left town.


The one thing I missed this Christmas was having snow on the ground.  A sleigh ride would have been much more holiday-ish.  But the weather was beautiful and the wagon ride was neat and the boys giggled pretty hard when the horses left some poo behind.  IMG_5108

Nana and papa were all smiles.  IMG_5114IMG_5125IMG_5132The wagon ride took us to a little village of a half dozen or so buildings that looked like they were right out of a western.  We spent a half hour or so in a big building with bouncy castles and… a mechanical bull!  I couldn’t convince the boys to give it a try but papa was chomping at the bit.  I have the evidence!

(Brian named the video ‘rodeo clown’.  Not me.  Just so you know, dad!)

We had an all-you-can-eat lunch of hotdogs and veggie burger and hot chocolate, then spent the rest of the time outside on the playground.  They had a zip line too but the boys weren’t having anything to do with it.  It was such a nice day, no one minded hanging out while we waited for the wagon to come back for us.
