Snow Day #.... ?

I lost count!

Hard to believe that in a couple days, the temp outside will be about the same as our bedroom!  Since they cancelled school Tuesday I took the boys to the farm show.  Me, them, and numerous guardian angels no doubt!  I didn't get lost, I didn't lose the boys for long periods, the car started back up after sitting in the parking lot all day (on the 2nd try), and the whole trip went rather smoothly for having all 4 in tow.  This is why I'm crediting my guardian angels!

There is sooo much to do here, and since we go every year we're learning where things are and what we like to do/see.  We were there from 11:00-6:30 and could have stayed longer, but wanted to end on a good note.  A benefit of having them close in age and same gender is they were mostly all drawn to the same things.

I was actually wanting to go on this particular day a while back, when I read that they were doing a honey extraction demo on Tues at 5:00.  we watched that and it was very interesting.  bee keeping might be in our future.  We got there a little early, which means the boys had time to heckle the stuffed bee..

The butterfly house is something we've never done.  But there was no line, so we paid the 2.00 each, and it was well worth it!
They give us Q-tips dipped in Gatorade and put it underneath the butterfly's feet.  they cling right to the Q-tip and you have an instant friend.


No line for this either, the boys took turns sitting on the bull.  I spend more money when there aren't lines :)

They were busy in the corn tables for awhile...

and riding the equipment...
Clay didn't get the memo...

This was a really neat station, they played music and the kids used the balls for their drums.  There was a person in the front doing a routine with the music that they were 'supposed' to follow.

Not sure what the purpose of the gigantic cherrios box was, but had to get a picture of it!

As soon as we walked in the door, we saw Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat.

This guy does the same magic routine every year, but he's very entertaining.
We were in for a rude awakening when we left in the evening, very cold!  they kept us warm inside the building.  So glad my car started and we got home in time for supper with daddy.
