The farm is great because there is the option of going to the lake for boating, water skiing, or swimming. There also is tons of land to run around and play on, animals to see, swings and wagon rides. Furthermore, there is no tv, no internet and no air conditioning, so if you’re bored you have to be creative in filling your time, and if you’re too hot than you have/get to figure out how to cool off.
We didn’t have to try very hard to keep cool on this trip. We were there for 2 nights and 1 full day, and unfortunately, on the full day it rained practically non-stop. Also, the high temperature for that day set a record for being the lowest on this date- it’s not typical for it only to reach the 60s in late July in Kentucky. While I don’t think the 60s are freezing, they are too cold for some of the farm activities we had been planning on, particularly the ones involving the lake.
We had a great time anyway. Jayce had a blast exploring the house and ran circles around the rooms, rarely putting down this huge bat which he alternated between using like a walking stick or like a blind man’s cane. While Jayce napped, Chris and I lazed around and talked, slept, read and leisurely drank our weight coffee. As soon as the rain let up a bit, we took Jayce on a wagon ride down to the nearby spring, and Chris introduced him to spider swinging.
It was a perfect time together. Though the weather didn’t line up with boating and swimming, it lined up perfectly with snuggling on the porch swing and listening to the rain hit the tin roof.
