Staheli Farm 2010

So, off we went this morning, to Washington, Utah, at the grand old hour of 7:30 am. You know it's got to be a great field trip if I'm willing to get going that early! We went to Staheli Farm, and had a blast!  We hadn't been in 2 years, but we've been many times in the past.  

Here's Sebastian on the hay ride to go get pumpkins.

As George explained to us, pumpkins come from flowers that get pollinated

The flowers then turn into melons!

They start off green, and as the weather cools, they become orange.

This is called a Cinderella pumpkin....yes, like the coach!  I thought it was particularly beautiful.

Running through the pumpkin patch

Then it was time to visit the animals.  We saw turkeys, and goats, and cows....and Mules.  And George asked the kids, "Who do you know that's famous that rode a mule?"  (Mary, and Jesus).  He asked us to notice the line down the center of the mule's back, and that it makes a cross design.  Very cool!

Look at this re-purposed pony ride, with tire horses!

Sebastian stayed on forever!!!

Some of the moms had fun playing too!

The ever famous Corn Slide....due to the rain the corn was covered  (that works well for us, as my kids always seem to inhale the corn and corn dust and choke!)

Who doesn't want to swing from bale to bale over mattresses?

Raingutter duckie races!

This is a very high stack of hay!

The part we waited for all day....the Cow Train!!

This has to be the coolest's called a Berg literally balance on it, and use it as a front end loader.  The kids couldn't get enough of it!

This place always reminds me how much I miss living where kids can play outside and get dirty and use their imaginations all day.  It is truly fabulous!  Thanks Staheli Farm, we had a blast!!
