Easter visit to Washbrooks Farm

Greeted by a chicken at the local farm - like you do
As we all know this Easter was freeeeeeeezing but there was no way we were going to spend 4 days at home, under the duvet watching films eating chocolate.... oh but I soo wanted to (and would have done pre-baby days).

I saw Washbrooks Farm on Kallikids website and as its only 'up the road' for us, we decided to go Easter Monday.  There was an Easter egg hunt going on in the afternoon but we function better in the mornings as Max tends to have a lunchtime sleep from around 12.30 til 2.30 then to get him ready and out the door is nearer 3pm and the day is almost over.

So at 10am we were up at the farm, its easy to get to and ample parking.  You are even shown your parking space by a chicken....  Ok maybe not, but it felt like that as they strolled road the cars.  Sign of a good farm is it not if you're greeted by chickens?

There is a lovely little tea room area, in and outdoor play areas and, of course, animals.   We saw the baby chicks and ducklings, daddy formed some strange bond with a turkey that came over to him then kept showing him his backside, not sure if he was trying to court him or threaten him (the turkey that is).  We met a sheep that loved having his head rubbed and goats that preferred the grass we had to the grass in their pen, our grass was obviously greener.

As the day went on the farm got very busy and Max's cheeks started to turn from red to purple from the cold so we went inside to play then have some lunch before wrapping him up warm for his lunch time nap and trip home.

We're going to go back to the farm when the weather is warmer to appreciate all the outdoor activities and revisit the animals
