Today we met up with a large group of other companies for a field trip to the farm. We needed a lot of other companies on board in order to get a good tour price, and so our organizer advised us to forward the interest email to others. From there, the group grew so large, we all weren’t exactly sure who knew who, originally. A great time, though: the kids husked corn to help create feed for the ducks, goats, sheep and chickens. Said “hi” to the rabbits. They could then ride the horses and/or take a tractor ride if they chose. Followed by a picnic under the trees. The weather could not have been more perfect, and it the excursion was overall a great, happy intro to Fall.




Waiting (restlessly) for the tour to begin.

Lots of farm dogs, including an alleged former circus star, who twirled.

N.Lo went right in there with the chickens! K.Lo went in, then out, then back in again. My employees didn’t have interest in making like Rocky and trying to catch a chicken (smart?), but they did enjoy tossing some more feed.

K.Lo got up on the horse, then down, and back up again. And then didn’t ride. But, she tried! Maybe next time. I would need some time to work up the nerve, too…


Aw. I rarely get shots of the 3 of us. Fun!
