A Day at Wolf Oak Acres


Matt works down the road at Wolf Oak Acres farm.

What a fun place to take the kids.

The owners were kind enough to open this, there first weekend, for free to the families of their workers.

I sure am glad we took advantange of this opportunity, because we ALL had a blast.

Be prepared for a very photo heavy post---(my favorite kind of post)
This is one cool cowboy.
Amy, you may need a bigger horse.

The "corn crib", filled with 3 tons of corn, to jump, swim and be buried in.

You will notice a new person in many of these photos.

Everytime I wanted to join the kids in their fun, I handed my camera to hubby....so, to my surprise, I keep finding myself among the pictures.!

In case you haven't seen me lately, I am wearing the Holy Cross sweatshirt.



Matt giving Kimmy lasso lessons.

That's a lot of rope for a little girl.

She did it !



Again, I'm caught on film. (What was I caught on? I know this isn't film?)

What a cowgirl!!!

You may notice I let go of both ends of the rope.. That would probably cause some sort of trouble is I was roping a real cow.

On to ride a cow.

Getting the "thumbs up" from our driver---Matt!!

This was sooooo fun!!!

Quite bumpy, but very fun!!



These are some serious pedal cars.

I would love one of these for each member of the family---we would be in great physical shape in no time.

They had the perfect sized car for everyone.

Kimmy needed a little push every once in a while.

Go Laura, Go Laura!!



Yep, Daddy got in on the fun too!

Not the right size for you, Amy!

CORN CANNON!!



Unusual stance, but I was the closest to the target!

A little duck racing





Luke is trying his luck racing 3 ducks at once.

Sluicing for precious stones

Luke hit the jackpot with an obsidion arrowhead.





Sorting through some of their great finds!

This is too cool for a 5 year old boy...




Here we go....wish us luck...I believe we will need it.....

This is the map of the most awesome cornmaze in Central New York.

I love all the fingers pointing in different directions in this photo.

We did eventually make it out.

We were told the easy path would take about 30 minutes....I think it took us a little longer. That may have been because of all the opinions each bend in the path caused.

A few more time around the pedal car track before heading for home.

Check out the whistle in Daddy's mouth!!

If you're told to put away your car, it's time to head for home, you might as well run a few laps around the track.
Thank-you, Wolf Oak Acres for a wonderful day.

Don't know if I introduced myself already: we're a family of 6, homeschooling too, living in Switzerland. If you'd like to know more, don't hesitate to have a look at our blog or ask me.
