Winter Fun at Steckle Heritage Farm

February 18, 2013 at 7:30 pm 2 comments

Today is Family Day in Ontario and several other provinces of Canada. Steckle Heritage Farm, a heritage farm within Kitchener city limits, hosted a day for families to have fun and spend time together. I’ll tell this story from a preschooler’s perspective, for all the young children who visited there today.

Winter Fun

Mommy and Daddy had a day off.

We put on our snowsuits and mittens and went to a farm. I waited to see the animals.

Grandma and Papa are coming too. We will see them there.


Matt says hello.


The big barn. Let’s go!


Mommy helped me make a bird feeder. We’ll put it in a tree to feed the birds.


My little sister wanted one too. We got a pine cone on a ribbon for her too.


We went outside again. The snow is deep.


I walked with Papa to see the ponies.  My fingers were cold, so Grandma helped me to put on my mittens.

Mommy, Daddy, and my little sister found the ponies too.


The ponies were hungry. They wanted some lunch.


We went into the barn again. I wanted to see the animals.

Here are the bunnies.  They wiggled their noses and stayed still.


A baby goat said hello.


More little  goats. See, they have water. They need a drink.


A little calf having a rest.


A wooly sheep in his winter coat.  Does it keep him warm?


Krista said, “Blossom sometimes grumbles,” and she made the sound.


Kala* showed us a black pig. We said hello. My sister liked him too.

And roosters too. They go cock-a-doodle-doo!


Walking in the snow. Little sister is getting tired.


One more game. Little sister puts the bean bags through the holes.

I play hula hoop.

Mommy says, “It’s time to go home.”


We walk to our car, but little sister is tired so Mommy carries her.

Bye, farm, we had fun!
