Santa's Christmas Tree Farm

Can you tell I'm playing catch up? Sorry I've been a bad blogger lately. I'm sure you understand with the time of year and all...

So yesterday we met some good friends up at Santa's Christmas Tree Farm. It happened to touch 80 degrees here yesterday, so it certainly wasn't Christmasy weather, but we did have a blast!

Curtis and his friends loved playing in the hay and going on a hay ride through the Christmas Trees. It smelled sooooo good!

The kids found a gopher tortoise when running through the rows of trees waiting to be cut.

Clark enjoyed the petting zoo (don't worry I washed his hands a bunch).

We all had such a great time. It was so nice to see our friends, whom we hardly ever see even though they are only about 45 mins drive north. I also just love places like this. It was so mom and pop and they didn't charge for the petting zoo or hay play area. The hayride was a $1 per person and they didn't charge for Clark since he's still a baby. It was so beautiful out in the country and the smell was so fresh and crisp. The animals were very cute and even the little baby Christmas trees had me oooooing and aaaaaaing. I am already looking forward to next month when we will get to go back up into the country and go strawberry picking!

What a great looking place! Bet the kids all had fun. I think that last photo is so cute ... well, maybe not cute since you cannot see the boys' faces but cute in a funny way with both boys standing and holding onto the fence. Curtis is definitely the "big" brother. Clark looks like a "little guy".
