This weekend I had the opportunity to take them to the Wilcox egg farm for a look around the farm museums, a tour of the farm while riding on a tractor-pulled wagon, a fresh omelet, and they were also able to ring the schoolhouse bell. High times for a preschooler! They enjoyed seeing the free-range chickens as well as sitting on the hay bales for the tour around the farm.
Since I now work more than full-time with a long commute, I haven’t been able to do as much with them lately outside of tucking them into bed at night. This farm tour was a way for me to take them out again and give their dad a good block of time to himself – he even got to take a nap while we were gone, the basic need for any parent of young twins. :) The other reason I wanted to spend the extra energy time with them was because I’ll be leaving early on Wednesday morning for a business trip to the Mid West and won’t be back until Friday afternoon.
