We normally take our Adventure Days on Saturdays, but I couldn't pass up a great deal: Thanksgiving Point was charging $2 for each of its attractions on Tuesdays in August. So with the proper motivation, my kids got their work done quickly after school and we headed up to Lehi for some farm fun. Sure we missed Kent, but he's living it up in Baja, Mexico this week, so I don't feel too bad.
We saw all sorts of farm animals and the kids--mine, not the goats--each got to ride a pony. I don't know the consensus on the favorite farm activity, but I thought the bunnies were awfully cute; the large, working horses were impressive; and the kids loved milking a real, live Jersey cow.
After seeing all the chickens, we felt inspired to head to Village Inn for some eggs. (The library's coupons for free kids' meals helped too.) There we are with an eight-page menu and at least that many options for the kids' menu, and four of the five of them all choose the exact same thing: funny face pancake with sausage and scrambled eggs. Those pancakes must have been funny because by the time we were passing around two pieces of pie for dessert, everyone was giggling and making "hilarious" kid jokes. I contributed with an easy one-liner that involved the word "bathroom" and it had Pink gasping for air, she was laughing so hard. I could easily be a stand-up comic if my audience were elementary-aged students. In keeping with the idea of Thanksgiving Point, I'm thankful that we had a great evening and that we came home with no "souvenirs" on our shoes!
