Thanksgiving Day & Fun at the Farm

11 Oct

It’s a holiday today, Thanksgiving Day in Canada. We haven’t been celebrating Thanksgiving as 1) it’s not part of our culture (yet) and 2) we don’t have family here to celebrate with. However, we had been having Thanksgiving lunch with our dear family friend RC and her family for the past 2 years. It’s always a feast with turkey, stuffing, gravy, sides and dessert. Yum!

This morning we went to Cooper’s Farm with friends for a fun family outing. It was a good day to be outdoors – cool morning of 10 degrees C and 16 degrees C in the afternoon. There were many visitors at the farm too, cars seemed to be pulling in constantly.

The farm has lots to see as well as activities to keep both children and adults entertained for a morning.

Corn table and corn box (not in picture).

Livestock. Yes, this is entertaining for city kids!

Even the adults were admiring this pot-bellied pig!

Goats on a bridge.

A baby maze.

The farm’s main attraction – their 10-acre corn maze. What is it about a maze that sets kids running off right from the start??

Picking your own pumpkin.

The quintessential farm fun activity – the wagon/tractor/hay ride.

Look at the beauty of a pumpkin I found! Don’t you think this would be the one Cinderella would pick for Fairy Godmother to turn into a carriage? I certainly think so!
