The Williams Family headed to Springdale Farm in Ogden today. I like this place. A lot.
It’s simple. It’s quiet. It’s beautiful. Did I mention it’s free? Well, other than the donation we put in the wishing well for donations:)
It was a cool, breezy day…but the sky was glorious and looked like this!
The kids were happy and excited and looked like this…
I’m not sure I have ever shown how we pack our family into the van…but there you go!
Springdale Farm is owned by Monroe County but operated by Heritage Christian Centers. It is an educational farm and there are many adults with developmental disabilities who help out at the farm during the day.
We visited the farm once a few years ago. I was pregnant with Allie, Brady hadn’t started walking and hadn’t been diagnosed yet, and I remember pulling the three of them around in the wagon.
A few years, another child, and a deadly disease later…and here we are again!
The grounds are so pretty. Nothing fancy…just simple beauty and stunning color.
Who’s ready to see some animals?
This cow was very patient with the kids.
This is some sort of giant hog. It was quite shocking—must have been 7 feet long at least.
Well, hello there!
Some of the goats ran away from the Williams family…
Hey! How did this goat get down there?
After our animal adventures, we enjoyed a nice packed lunch and then time on the playground.
A simply great day.
