This week we had a big field trip to the Hamburger Farm.
The kids had a great time. We had time to play on the property, ride a train, tour the hamburger farm and have a hamburger lunch.
The tour started out with a stop at the bee colony. A really interesting way to see bees at work.
We saw wheat growing and the kids even got to grind their own flour.
Tomato plants, cucumbers, dill, lettuce and onions were next.
There were two cows there. A large beef cow and a huge pregnant dairy cow.
The kids all had a chance to "milk" a wooden cow - that was a huge hit.
We also visited the potato patch and the compost heap.
After the tour the kids played in the sandbox.
Amazingly Zachary ran right up and went down this huge slide. That is usually not his thing - just recently has he started braving taller heights.
We finished up our time panning for marbles.
We had a great time at the hamburger farm!
