Remlinger Farm

Remlinger Farm- Look Mom!

Remlinger Farm- Here we go!!!  Steam is pouring out of the smoke stack.

Remlinger Farm- Can you see E?

Remlinger Farm- the girls got to ride for a full twenty minutes, we were the only ones at the rides!

There's a local farm that puts on seasonal carnivals- our home school co-op organized a group event (that got us in for half price!)  It was amazing- it gets pretty crowded later in the month, with about 600 kids on average during a week day.  We had barely 100 kids running around the park.  There was one bus load of kids, plus a handful of moms.  At 12:30 everyone but us went to lunch, literally....the girls had a hey-dey running from ride to ride!  The woman running the carousel was a darling, and let the girls ride for 20 minutes straight while we chatted.  Even with the other kids there, there was never a line for any of the rides.  Along with the carnival rides there was a hay maze, a real steam engine (the engineer showed the girls the wickedly roaring fire behind the iron door in the engine- they were stunned!), a puppet show/sing-along, lots of animals to see, and we all got to pick out a pumpkin to take home.

I know there are so many wildfires going on in our state right now, on the dry side of the mountains, but I'm loving with warm and dry Fall.

That looks like a great day. I'm hoping to find a farm nearby that does all the fun October type things like pumpkin patches, mazes, etc. Having one that has rides is super cool.
