Summer Vacation Fun! Part 1

Hi everyone!  I took a little break to go on vacation with the family.  We just got back, but I wanted to take a minute to share a few pics of all the fun we had!

The first part of our little vacation took us to Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  We visited Cherry Crest Adventure Farm.  We've been once before and the kids loved it again.  There's so much to do and the activities are well spread out that it never seems over-crowded. 

There is a petting farm with goats, sheep, pigs, ponies, and chickens.  There is even a spot where the kids can hold new born baby chicks.

The most fun part at Cherry Crest for the kids is the Barnyard.  It's like a big playground at the farm with a huge bounce pillow, water table, giant slide, rope maze, sandbox, duck racing, tractor wagon pull and more!

The kids also loved watching the trains ride by from the Strasburg Railroad, although my daughter thought the train whistle was much too loud!

My favorite part is the historical tractor ride around the farm.  It's really neat to hear the history of the farm and the Amish people who helped to build that land, and a wonderful chance for mom and dad to take a 15 minute rest.

We definitely plan on making Cherry Crest Farm a family tradition.  When the kids are older, we will visit and try out one of the most amazing corn mazes around.  You can visit their website for all the details - Cherry Crest Adventure Farm
