Fun on the Farm

Today’s three-hour adventure was packed full of fun, new experiences! For lunch, we had a quick picnic at Edgewater Park. The kids had sandwiches & pretzels, and Jon & I split a meal from Kelley’s BBQ (http://www.kelleysbbq.com/). It was AMAZING!!

Then we headed out to the Berry Barn off Highway 20. There was a Groupon deal last month for half off their Hedge Maze (5 people for only $10). We went and had a wonderful time getting lost in the trees! We learned about berries, found all the stations, went down the super-fast slide, and made it out of the maze alive! 🙂 There was also a rope maze right next to it; we did that, boys vs. girls… Elijah joined our team midway through (I think to distract us), so Jon & Jackson made it to the finish first.

After our time at the Berry Barn, we stopped at Schuh Farms for ice cream cones. We got to sit outside there and enjoy our treat. It was so beautiful & peaceful!

To end our adventure, we went to downtown Mount Vernon. We stopped at Sprouts Clothing, my favorite consignment shop for kids (http://www.sproutsclothing.com/). We had a leftover credit of $6 that we wanted to use up before we moved, so Laci & Elijah each got a shirt for school. Then we went next door to Ristretto, one of our favorite coffee shops in Skagit Valley (http://ristrettocoffeelounge.com/).

This family adventure was definitely one of the best we’ve had yet!! Click here to watch our video blog for this adventure on YouTube!
