Last week Darcy and I were on the hunt for adventure whilst she still enjoyed the Easter Break and it came in the perfect package of a playdate with some of our friends at a local open farm.
I took my camera to make a little vlog that you can watch HERE and I *tried* to take a few pictures but quickly gave up! The farm was super busy, I was socialising with the other Mums, looking after Darcy, being chief bag & coat holder AND vlogging, so taking beautiful family photos fell by the wayside but I still wanted to share the couple I did get and talk about the morning.
It was bloomin' lovely! I've never been one for places like that but this one was more of a learning and play facility than an actual stinky farm yard. There was in indoor soft play zone for the children to go gaga in (there were about 8 littles and 4 Mama's all together so Darcy had plenty of friends!), a very sweet animal barn where you were able to go inside the pens and touch the animals (Darcy wasn't too keen on this but I had a good stroke of the fluffy things and wanted to take them all home with me), tiny peddle tractors, donkeys, swings/outdoor playsets, picnic benches, bouncy castles, duck ponds and a cafe- quite a lot to keep you entertained.
I like that you could go for half an hour (it was about £12 for both me and Darcy) and just do one thing or you could take some nibbly treats and spend the whole day there if you really felt like it. Lots to do for little busy people and plenty of benches for Mama's to watch from!
(I shared this one on my insta, look at the wind in her hair!)
I'm definitely going to go back in the future with my big girl camera and take some beautiful photographs because I really cherish the high quality ones I've taken in the past. I might need to take a friend to help me out but that just adds to the fun I think.
I'm always on the look out for fun things to do during the school holidays so please do leave any suggestions you have in the comments below and I'll be sure to check them out!
