Visit to Gale Farm

Earlier this week we decided to pay a visit to Gale Farm out in Minnetrista. The farm is part of the Three Rivers Park District--my favorite district--and has a ton of activities for little 'uns for all your HWH followers with kids under 10. We went because we heard you could feed the animals and go on hayrides and such on Saturday mornings.

During our visit, we had the chance to feed chickens...

Pet sheep...

And go on a tractor ride.

We also made a wool bracelet for Matthew, played farm toys and checked out all the machinery (Daddy, what does THIS one do?). The kids had a blast, as you can see from the videos, but Ang and I thought it was one of better weekend trips of late.

The drive from Mpls out to Minnetrista was an added bonus--beautiful fall colors and really, just a very scenic ride. You drive by Excelsior, various fingers of Lake Minnetonka and past many, many multi-million dollar homes. It's really quite unbelievable out west--we just never get the chance to go out that way. Possibly a future home site.
