Thanksgiving Point Animal Farm is one of the children’s favorite places to go for fun, and one of mine, too. We’ve been going there ever
since Lillian was a toddler. Admission is $2.50 and includes a pony ride or wagon ride.
We’ve yet to try the wagon ride -- who wants
a wagon ride when there are ponies? The
many animals there are always a hit. In the
Spring, there are tons of baby lambs & goats,
and it’s always funny to see a short little
mama goat with an enormous belly. The goats
are the kids’ favorites -- for 25 cents, you can purchase food for them and they‘ll eat right out of your hands. One time, we were
feeding the goats when an anxious one
squeezed it’s way through the gate and got loose! The other highlights are the unusual
chickens and peacocks. In the main building,
they sometimes do milking demonstrations.
One time when Joey was about two, he
had a chance to milk it. Lillian was too scared to try.
If the kids are extra lucky or if I’m feeling
adventurous, we’ll venture over to the ice
cream shop and share an enormous ice cream
sundae. Since the twins started running around, I haven’t felt quite up to chasing
them around while we eat, but I know as they
get older, we’ll be doing it a lot more.
