A couple of weekends ago, It was my nieces birthday and we decided to go to the farm with the family. Honestly I’m not sure who was more excited, me or the kids. Let’s be real for a second, last year with quarantine the kids were home so much and it made me feel a little sad especially because they are so young. Right now Amari is 2 years old and Avanna is 1 year old, I feel like at these ages they should be able to go outside, play in a park and even be around other kids their age but the pandemic struck and we couldn’t be outside as much as we wanted to. Now, with places reopening again and social distancing Im really excited to give the kids a more well rounded experience so that they can get a bit more social again. The farm is a great place to start because not only do you have fun activities sometimes there are other children for the kids to play with. We went on a barn ride around the farm, the one we visited is called Mortimer farms. What I really loved is that there were a couple of pumpkin patches, a field to pick strawberries, a couple of mazes, and a tour of the premises. In usual influencer fashion, we took a couple of pictures here and there to remember the event and a couple to post on here.
There are a couple of things I learnt from this visit to the farm that I’d love to share:
- Handling two babies under 2 is no joke, especially in places like this where kids can easily wander off. Make sure that there are eyes on the kids at all times so they can’t wander too far
- A change of clothes, two pairs if necessary is required on trips like this because it can get very messy especially because there is mud everywhere.
- Be careful when it comes to interacting with other kids especially because you don’t want your kids to catch a cold or something worse, make sure they maintain a good distance when playing.
- Make sure when the kids are eating they aren’t also feeding the animals just because of cross contamination. Monitor them as best as you possibly can
- HAVE FUN! Interact with the kids, join the activities, feed your inner child and let loose! The best part of going to the farm is being able to savor these memories with your kids, they don’t last forever
