A few days ago we went to visit Paws Farm a children's nature center. I had heard of this place but had never gone before. Turns out it is about five minutes from our house and a stupendous place to go when you just need to get the kids out of the house. And, best of all, the kids LOVED it. Benjamin never wanted to leave. We had to promise him that we would come back the next day with Daddy (and we did!)
The center has three indoor play areas, several small animal exhibits, a large animal area with goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, deer, llamas, pigs, horses, rabbits, and an emu! And then outside there are several playground areas...a large wooden train, a large wooden boat, swings, slides, bridges, etc etc
The first area when you come in is probably Ben's favorite because of the transportation center. There are cars and TWO Thomas train tables! What more could a Benjamin want?
Towards the back of the room there is a huge boat to climb and play in and then a big sand table with sand toys.
Ben had a great time with two little girls ambushing me and the other mommy with acorns.
There is a little children's theatre area with lots of costumes to try on. Anna chose a ladybug costume than was way too big for her.
Here is one of our little friends dresses as an elephant!
