The summer is almost over. 🙁 That means it was time for a staff windup. Marie, our executive director treated us all to an afternoon at Kraay Family Farm. This summer we had seven summer students and an intern working at the three museums. Martin and Robyn worked in the archives at the Michener House Museum. Kim did frontline at Michener House. Seth & Kirsten worked at the Blacksmith Shop. Nicole and Cassidy worked at the Flatiron Museum. Paige was our summer intern and worked out of the Michener House. Also joining us on our trip were Becca and Angel who work at the Michener House and Flatiron, respectively. Unfortunately Ellen and Robyn were unable to join us at the farm.
Our first stop was of course the maze! A group of us decided to try the hard phase first. There was a lot of back tracking and Marco Polo but we solved the clues and made it out in time for snacks!
Marie treated us all to snacks from the Corncession and the Sugar Shack. Our favourites were the kettle corn, deep fried pickles, and the ice cream!
We went and visited all of the cute animals next and of course our favourite animals were the GOATS! They also have pigs, chickens, ducks, miniature ponies, a donkey and bunnies.
Off to the bouncy pillows and Grain Train! Seth tried to bounce us off the pillows. Nicole and Paige had a bounce race, we’re not too sure who won. Angel enjoyed a tour of the farm on the Grain Train. She got to see the pumpkin patch and how tall the corn was.
After the bouncy pillows we tried out some of the lawn games. Becca, Kim, Nicole, Seth, and Martin tried bowling and corn hole while Marie taught Cassidy how to play giant chess!
Next we were off to have a Shootout at OK Corral. We had a blast shooting each other!
After the Shootout we went for slushies.
Kim and Paige battled against Seth in Tug’ O War and can you guess who won? Kim and Paige did! Seth got his revenge once Paige left and he won battling Kim.
Nicole, Marie, Seth, Martin, and Cassidy went go carting! It was supposed to be a race but it didn’t work out.
It was time to say our farewells… Until next time!
