This past weekend we met up with friends at Butler’s Orchard near Germantown, MD (about an hour north of Alexandria). Butler’s Orchard is a family farm that hosts seasonal festivals throughout the year (strawberry picking, a pumpkin patch, etc.). The current festival is Bunnyland in honor of Easter and spring.
Here’s a photo of Noah, Stella and Donovan at the entrance.
The first thing they wanted to do was ride down the slides on the potato sacks. So much fun! Noah is in the green hat on the right.
Here’s the view from the top. Noah is on the black part of the slide, and Ryan is at the end. Yeah, it was a long ways down!
And here are two short videos as well. As a quick reminder: If you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video. To do so, just click on the title of the post (the link in blue) at the top of the email to open the blog in your web browser.
Our next stop was the barn to see the animals. The kids got to see bunnies, lambs and chicks.
They also played in the hay.
Next we headed to the tractors. The kids raced pedal tractors around the track, and then we all went on a hayride pulled by a John Deere tractor – very cool!
After the hayride, the kids explored the wooden tractor, pirate ship and train.
Next we headed to the Easter egg hunt. The kids had a blast gathering eggs and putting them in the big egg return bin. The eggs rolled down a chute and into a basket in the back.
The kids also snuck in a quick game of rubber ducky derby. Little Sebastian even made an appearance in these photos.
We ended our outing with a quick snack of homemade appeal cider donuts – yummy! Thanks Bekka! The kids built up quite an appetite, and I think the big kids too. Ha.
Visiting Butler’s Orchard was a great way to enjoy the sunny afternoon!
