Halloween 'fun' at the farm

Me and little man took a day trip with the preschool to Thurleigh farm in Thurleigh. Although the weather was absolutely rubbish it was a fairly jolly coach ride there. All i can say is when we arrived we weren't very impressed, it was tiny!
We got off the coach and went into a tiny cafe, only half of us fit the other half were sent elsewhere. The cafe in combined with a small table labeled 'Gift shop' which contained fairly expensive small items. We then was told the children would receive a biscuit and juice but actually received rich tea and weak squash. Not really worth it :/ Then we made our way to the 'tractor' to see a tour of the farm. The 'tractor' turned out to be in fact an old fire engine that had a rather old man in the front. The kids were piled in the back with adults equally squashed further back. It wasn't big enough for all the adults and children so what was left behind wasn't even worth another trip round so we stuck it out.













Next was pumpkin carving and throughout the whole day this was the most exciting thing :/ it was rather challenging trying to gut the pumpkin. I had to do it no way little man would be able to and  no way was I getting my hands dirty so I used the scoop :) In fact poor little man actually got to do none of the pumpkin as the knives were sharp potato like knives.


After the pumpkins we finally got to see the animals or should i say lack of! There was a few lamas one goat ans 2 oversized pigs followed by a large rabbit and a falling over and disappearing act from little man ( found washing hands lol). Then they decided if all the rain we had just had wasn't enough they were encouraged to play in the wet sand and dirty mud combined. Poor little man had had enough so it was on to lunch and a long hour of the play zone.



















                      All in all a very tiring day but not really worth the trip out in the rain.
