Farm Fun

Last weekend Kristi, Davis, Kevin, the kids, and myself drove over to Denver Downs, which is a huge farm near Clemson University.  The fall farm fun activities have grown bigger and bigger over the years, and there is so much there for everyone to enjoy.  Our original plan for the weekend was to go to Carowinds, because Kate has been betting us to go there for well over a year.  However, Hurricane Matthew put a damper on this plans (literally) as the rains moved through Charlotte.  Denver Downs was our second choice and it did NOT disappoint.



We hit up the corn maze, but didn't make it too far in because (1) we didn't want to get too lost and (2) we had to get back for the pig races.  Seriously.  I can't make this stuff up.




There was time to test out the big trampoline type thing firs though. (I have no clue what this thing is really called, but it was fun!)



I ended up having to go out there with Karsten and she spent her whole time running away from me.







Next up were the corn boxes. I have to say, this is a pretty great idea.  Sort of like a sandbox, but WITHOUT THE SAND.  Can I get an "amen"?







There was also a hay loft that was set up with all kinds of fun stuff near the top - rope swings, horse swings, etc!


And of course some rides...





After the hay ride, we called it a day.  Karsten skipped her nap so she was beyond tired, and it was also a million degrees outside, but we had a blast in spite of the heat.  Until next year, Denver Downs! I know we'll be back.
