Lili has been going to pre-school for about a month now and today they went on their first field trip to Rader Family Farms.
This farm is visible from an Interstate that I’ve traveled many, many times and I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I’ve never ever noticed it was there before today. If you look at the website, you’ll see a picture of a silo with a huge orange pumpkin on top and still, I’ve never noticed this farm until today.
Lili wanted me to go with her on the field trip, so Naomi and I tagged along. After being there today, I can honestly say that we’ll be going back. It was fun and is only about 15 miles from our house. That’s a big bonus.
I enjoyed being at the farm today, but Lili also had a great time. She got to ride a school bus; went on a hay rack ride out to the pumpkin patch and picked her own pumpkin to bring home; got to feed the goats, pet a donkey and some baby pigs; chase chickens around the farm; take a ride the ladybug train; jump on the inflatable hill; and have lunch with her friends.

A very nice first field trip indeed.
What a great place! Emma loved looking at the pictures….especially the ladybug train!
Glad she had a great time! Inflatable hill??? Must be Central IL flatlands!lol
What a fun time! We take our kinderkids to the pumpkin patch each year, but it isn't quite that fun (no animals for one thing). I love seeing the pics!
I love field trips!!! 🙂
