Before kids, my husband and I often took little weekend trips together, often with another couple. We would spend the weekend sight-seeing, going out to dinner, staying in cozy little hotel rooms.
I think that must have been about 1,000 years ago.
Or maybe longer.
We have yet to go on any sort of vacation as a family. Quite honestly, I can barely maintain my sanity during an hour-long drive to the "big city" with the children. The thought of a long drive somewhere makes me want to jab sharp things in my ears.
But we have decided it's time. Time to get away. The four of us are going to take a little 2 day, overnight trip together.
Nothing big. About 2.5 hours away. But it will be Cole's dream vacation.
A couple of fun facts about our vacation site:
*There are 30,000 cows
*80,000 milkings occur every day, 24 hours a day
*Each cow produces 10 gallons of milk each day
*An average of 80 calves are born each day
I don't think our kids could love a place more than they will love Fair Oaks Farm.
Yes, I do see the irony in a farm family going to a farm for vacation. But this is like no other farm in the country. Check out this video. It's awesome. I can't wait to go to the "birthing theater." (about 4:00 into the video.) And the milking wheel? (2:10 in the video) So cool!
