Today was our last trip to Ellm's for the season. Even though I've been feeling a little Ellm's-ed-Out, I am so glad we went because today was definitely the best of the season.
It started out rainy and miserable, but as soon as we pulled into the parking lot the sun was shining and the sky was blue. It warmed up quickly, and soon we wished we were wearing t-shirts.
Since it's a weekday, Ellm's doesn't open to the public until 10 and even though there were field trips, most didn't arrive until 10:30 or 11, so for a couple hours it felt like we had the whole farm to ourselves. No lines for anything and the kids could do whatever they wanted.
Starting with a few (or ten) trips down the zip line:
Some roller coasters, animals and jumping:
The jumping pillow all to ourselves:
A Moo-Moo-Choo-Choo ride:
And then as we were walking back up the hill from the moo-moo-choo-choo, the skies opened up and for the next hour we huddled in a barn eating cider and donuts and watching the rain pour down in sheets. By the time it cleared, MiniM.E. had had enough for the day and we headed home. Even with the rain, it was a fantastic day. See you next year Ellm's!
