Our trip to the A Maze'n Farmyard

As you know, Saturday we went to the A Maze'n Farmyard.  We were there for about 2.5 hours and didn't even get to do everything-there is a ton!  The kids all had a blast, and so did all the adults.

It's about an hour drive from Hutchinson, and $6.95 for ages 3+.  That can get to be very expensive, very quickly - but if you have a warm day, you could easily be there for four hours or more.  Our day started out very cool, but warmed up nicely.

Despite grass being everywhere, the goats eagerly ate it out of our hands

Yes, that's my son, kissing a goat.  Gotta pick your battles.


This baby goat was soooo teeny and cute.  The Momma was very protective and would literally stare anyone down that looked at the baby!

 Along with grass, goats also like red knit scarves.

 And cameras.

 The bounce house lasted for approximately 3.9 seconds.  More than last time where he wouldn't go past the front door though.

 This cat really liked my Father-in-Law!

 Henry and cousin playing with a farm set.

His first pony ride!  He loved the first lap, then on the second one he decided he was done.


 Christmas card material.

 Just the day before our trip, I was teaching Henry about camels having a hump on their backs, and then he got to see one up close and personal!

 My boys.

 That's why they call it the A MAZE'N Farmyard.

 You had to go through the maze and find all 5 towers, it took quite a while!



Uncle Pete helping Henry up the stairs.


 That was hard work!




 We didn't get a chance to go on the tractor ride. :(

 But we hit the slide twice!  Once with Da Da....

 Once with Mommy!

 And we did get to ride the choo-choo.

Which was really a tractor outfitted as a train.  Pretty clever!

 He was hungry when we got in the car and munched on Kix for about 5 minutes straight.  Suddenly the crunching stopped and this is what we saw.  Hand still in the bag, but just can't stay awake...


At the restaurant.  Drool and all!

We came home and made our pumpkin, which was a complete thrill to Henry.  Everyday since he likes to go visit with his pumpkin.

It was a great day!


  1. Oh, how fun!! My kids always loved the pumpkin patch field trips!! They are both teens now. Time flies!! Enjoy you little fellow!!

  2. Oh my gosh! He was tuckered out! That picture of him sleeping at the restaurant is adorable :).
