You might remember our spring trip from back here. Well, my kiddos wanted to see the corn they planted all grown and ripe for picking. Plus, they wouldn't let us go in the actual house during our last visit, so we made sure that would be feasible this go around. Unfortunately, they did away with the organization of groups, going from activity to activity, over the last six months, which meant we were free to move about the farm as we pleased, but it was super busy and complete chaos from our perspective. There wasn't near the information relayed, simply because no one ever knew when someone would join or move out of the group. Plus, the staff wasn't super friendly last time, and we felt even less friendliness this time. You'd think if it was someone's job to engage kids all day, they'd actually relate to them a little more.
All that said, we still made the most of our trip, just being out and about on a beautiful, fall day, learning about life, along the Santa Fe Trail, in the 1860's.
