Wheeler Farm

When we can we like to take the boys out to do something outside or somewhere they can run around after Cody gets home from work. It give them a chance to run off some energy and with any luck see something new. Last night we headed out to Wheeler Farm, the boys haven’t been to the farm since March. On that visit they stayed in their wagon almost the whole time. If I let them out of the wagon they fought over who got to pull the wagon. No wagon this time.

I used my phone to track how much walking or running around while we were there. I walked just over 2 miles so the boys probably did closer to 2.25 since they run back and forth everywhere. As soon as we arrived we spotted some roosters and geese. Nicholas wasn’t a huge fan of the geese at first. He was okay with them as long as they were on the other side of the fence. Andrew and Parker were happy to look at the geese while holding hands. So cute!

Andrew reached out for Nicholas’ hand but he wasn’t interested.

We stopped to see the flowers, very briefly stopped.

Nicholas was first to discover the playhouse. Safe to say he was excited about it.

Even with animals and open fields to run through the boys favorite part by far was all of the old tractors. They all climbed on and ‘drove’ them. As a sign as just how far the assigned color brainwashing is, in one field there was a red, blue and green(mostly) tractor. The boys went to the wagon of their color immediately. At least they didn’t fight.

After these tractors we took the boys to see the goats, rabbits and the cows. Of course opposite of the rabbits were more tractors. It was no contest as to what the boys wanted to see.

We left as the mosquitoes came out, with three tired little boys. I’m sure we’ll be back again soon for more exploring.
