I'm proud to say that, thanks to my friend Kathleen, we rectified the situation and took the kids out for a morning at Gentry's Farm. Yeah, it was just us and the entire population of Davidson and Willamson Counties.
This is what we found upon entering:
There were a few great set-ups for photo ops.
None of which panned out perfectly.
Then it was on to the Munchkin Corn Maze.
It turns out, this maze is constructed out of sorghum, so it's not so scary for the wee ones. Or something.

We felt reasonably sure that we could find our way out of the miniature log cabin, so we checked out the digs. Will celebrated his freedom by turning the butter churn into bongos.
And hanging out in the teepee.
A little light housework was in order.
And then it was off to test our skills at the beanbag toss.

|And it's good!|
Next up, we met up with our friends.
|Silly, sweet girls.|
As was some tire swinging.
The "Crazy Maze" gave us yet another opportunity to get lost.
And to do some more sliding.
|Wringing of hands|
Next, we had to try our hands at rolling an ENORMOUS bale of hay. Not a whole lot of progress on that one.
|I love Will. Will loves his blue cotton candy lollipop.|
I felt a certain kinship with this guy for football-related reasons, but he turned out to be a bit camera-shy.
Here are the three hayriders ready for action.
Mike got some nice shots of the scenery on the farm:
But the new baby calves were the biggest draw for our peeps. I don't know if the four-legged friends appreciated all the mooing aimed their way as we rode by.
It was a hard day's work on the farm.
