Kindergarten field trip to the farm! 
Aidan & his class had a great time (despite the heat) feeding animals, enjoying a barrel ride, and being on the farm.
Aidan fed goats, mules, pigs, chicks,  and we saw a 600+pound hog. With a smashed in face and tons of flies covering him. It was quite the sight! (unfortunately I didn't get too great a picture of the hog)

This farm was great. A lot to offer year-round, and the people leading the field trip were so great with the kids. If you live in the area, I recommend Country Lane Tree Farm

Here are some scenes from our field trip:

This "train ride" made of barrels was a blast! The driver did not go slow, either. The kids loved it.

Remember this old-school playset McDonald's used to have? It was on the farm as part of the play area! It brought back good memories for me. :)

The lucky kindergartners got another train ride at the end-to the parking lot! Grandpa Bob was great.

I'm so glad I was able to go on this field trip with Aidan. And I'm grateful Patrick was able to work from home yesterday so Brennan could stay home.
I can't believe Kindergarten is almost over. I've loved this school, the teacher has been great, and Aidan has some spectacular classmates. I hope 1st grade will be as wonderful!
