Last week, we went to Prairie Gardens. For me, this was an extremely significant thing. It’s not that it was the most fabulous day we’ve ever had, but it was a big deal for me as it symbolized that Miss Optimism’s meds are working. I have been wanting to take the kids to Prairie Gardens for many years, but we have never been able to go as Miss Optimism just hasn’t been healthy enough to be outside. With there being hay and animals and dust and trees, even at times when her lungs have been well enough for her to go out in our yard, it’s still never been a possibility, but she is doing so well right now that we were able to go. She was thrilled! She dressed so that she would look like she belonged at a farm and her smile was plastered on her face the whole time we were there!
She especially loves animals and had the chance to be able to hold many different animals. She loved that part so much that when the rest of us all went on the train ride, she stayed with the animals.
The rest of the kids had fun too! There were two corn mazes, a hay bale maze, a haunted house, a spider web maze, rubber duck races using water pumps, panning for gems, a petting zoo, and many other activities.
