It was such a beautiful day this past Sunday that we just needed to get out after church. I had seen that our favourite little farm, Aldor Acres, was going to be open for the day so we decided to go there. We last went there in October to pick out a pumpkin. This time it was all about seeing animals.
With it being spring there were lots of little baby animals all around the farm. Evie kept turning her head every which way because there were so many animals to look at and she was trying to figure out which animal was making what sound. Guess we should start working on what noise each animal makes with her.
It was not overly crowded like in the Fall when everyone wants to get a pumpkin, so we were able to walk around and not have to worry about Evie getting lost in the crowd if we let her wander around. We did use our carrier again for a bit because I forgot to pack socks and rain boots for Evie. Oops! Thankfully it wasn’t too muddy at all so she was able to walk around without a huge mess happening.
The hay ride took a different route than usual. Jason actually didn’t want to go on, but I knew that a different route was going to be in store. We got to go around to the creek that runs through the property and along the back end. Apparently the creek will flood and beavers take over between all the cotton wood trees back there. We even learned where the original homesteaders got their water from and that thanks to it they had a fully functioning bathroom if you know what I mean.
Evie was very antsy whenever the tractor stopped. If it was not moving, she wanted to be moving. At the end of the ride it was time to go home, but not until we enjoyed the goat parade as all the goats made their way back to the barn to have their dinner.
I love that Aldo Acres is all about educating families, especially kids, all about how farming works and what is involved. Each time we go we learn something new. It is worth the little trek out into the back area of Langley.
