Last June, the Utah Dairy Council hosted a wonderful FREE family event, “Day on the Farm” in Midway, UT.
We really needed to escape the city for an afternoon and we enjoyed spending time together at Canyon View Farm near the Heber Valley Milk Creamery.
We fed carrots to the largest cow I’ve ever seen.
Our boys ran their first burlap sack race!
We enjoyed free pizza courtesy of Domino’s Pizza, and free Aggie ice cream.
We discovered this incredible tree.
Our boys and two friends their size were able to stand inside this tree together.
As always, we loved the inflatable bounce house.
Our boys were able to hold and pet a variety of baby animals for the first time: bunnies, ducklings, a lamb, and piglets.
This cute calf and my husband shared a moment.
We took a tour of Canyon View Farm.
We went for a ride in this, which Dad spun around by hand.
We don’t often think about where the cheese on our pizza, or the ice cream we enjoy in summer comes from.
We enjoyed learning new things and sharing a unique experience as a family.
