Bluebird Gap Farm

Yesterday we decided to venture out again. The area really has a ton of parks and activities for the kids - the hardest part isn't trying to find a place to go but deciding which one to go to and they are all so close to our house.

I ended up picking Bluebird Gap Farm. The kids absolutely loved it! There were animals (ducks, goats, deer, llamas, cows, pigs, rabbits, turtles, etc) for them to feed, a covered area to eat lunch and a playground for them to play on. And the best part of it for me - it was FREE! We've been to several parks like this back in Maryland but to go to some of them it's as expensive as going to the Baltimore Zoo!! I think we'll definately be visiting this park again during our summer "vacation".

Here are some pictures from our trip:

This was Boy 1 right after I told him not to stick his hand in the fence, and right before he got bit by the duck!

Here's a duck butt!

And here is Girl right as she got slobbered on by the goat and right before she yelled, "Gross!!"

Here are the ducks running across the bridge to bite Boy 1. (Just kidding - they were coming to get food we threw.)

And here is Boy 2 doing what he likes best - playing with sticks and dirt!

Since my plan is to take little day trips as least once a week (in hopes that I can get them out of the house so I don't go insane) you'll probably be seeing/hearing about these frequently. Hopefully our trip next week, where ever that may be, will be just as much fun!

And in case anyone is wondering - yes, I do already have a LIST of places to go.....

What do you have to say?


This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
