We met up with Marcie, Amelia and Megan on Saturday at the Busy Bees Adventure Farm in Ft. Aktinson, WI. This was such a fun place for the kids to play! One of the events that they have throughout the day is the hog hustle. They have piglets run around a pen with felt velcro flags on them and kids have to chase them to grab 2 flags. We arrived just as they were starting the first one (Marcie wasn't there yet) and Natalie would NOT run around after the pigs. Luckily she ran after then the next two times we participated. It's really hard to get pictures of this because adults constantly were in the way of my camera!
Here are the piglets (named ham, bacon, pork, etc) waiting for the kids to chase them.
Off they go!
The kids really enjoyed the tube slide where they sat on carpet squares. There was an indoor and outdoor slides.
There were lost of fun things to play with outside-a music garden, an obstacle course, a tire obstacle course they could climb on, a tricycle track, and so much more. (I only have pictures of Natalie on tires and obstacle course because I had taken her to the bathroom and the other kids had already done those two).
They had a trivia corn maze. We had to get the kids to pay attention to the signs and try to figure out if they were true or false. We would go the direction of the signs and if we hit a dead end we knew we answered the question wrong. There was also a rope maze that the kids played in for a while. They had fun climbing under and over the ropes.
We attended a puppet show that was the story of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff but instead it was the 3 Cows Gruff. All the kids really liked it. There were pretend horses right outside the barn and the kids really enjoyed riding on them. Natalie even pretended to be a jockey.
A favorite was definitely the rat races. Each kid got in a tube/wheel and started crawling or walking to get the wheel to move down the tracks. They did this over and over and over again! I even got in a tried it but it was hard because I got going too fast!
We took a ride on the hayride and we didn't know that it stopped at the pumpkin patch and we were expected to get out and pick a pumpkin. We let the kids pick little ones. I did not get good pictures of all the kids together-maybe Marcie did.
