We had a very busy weekend. The kiddies went for their swimming classes, played for hours in the garden splashing in the pool, playing with bubbles, football and letting loose in the sun. And we ended the fun weekend with a trip to our local farm – Stockley Farm, in Cheshire, which was a lovely experience. How was your weekend?
Thoughts on Stockley Farm
It was good fun. The weather was dead warm at almost 30 degrees. And the kiddies were loving it. This was our first trip to a farm as a family and I was well impressed. The trip to the farm started with a tractor ride which was the highlight of the day. Then we had the opportunity to go round the farm, popping into the many animal barns to see the animals. The kids even got the opportunity to feed some of them. It was a good family day out for sure. We will be doing it again for sure. There are quite a few farms around us in Cheshire, which we will be exploring this summer.
There was also a soft play available, and a playground which was a nice surprise. I didn’t think the farm would have all those as well but it did, and it kids made sure they made the most of them.
Days out are always fun for the whole family when done right and this was a great experience all around. I really liked the fact that the tractors that took us to and fro the farm were both prompt. Since we had to park our car in a car park a mile away from the farm, and catch the tractor. The last thing I wanted was to hang around waiting for a tractor. But thankfully we didn’t have to.
