Saturday at Ioka Valley Farms

Last Saturday, my daughter and I were invited to spend the day at Ioka Valley Farms with some good friends of ours.

Ioka Valley Farms is located in Hancock, Massachusetts which is right on the border.  It is about an 45-50 minute drive from Albany.

It is strawberry season so there were a lot of strawberry items on the breakfast menu.  I had stuffed french toast.  My daughter had a strawberry pancake.

We both had bacon that was delicious.  But seriously, it’s bacon.  Bacon is delicious, period.

The farm had a lot of activities for the kids.

There was a multi-grain box.

There were duck races.

There were bunnies and baby chicks.

There was a big play area that included slides.

There was a swingset.

My daughter was amused that I went on the swings.  I love swings.  When I was in college, my friends and I would go a playground in the East End of Portland (Maine…the first Portland) and we would swing on the swings at night.  It was one of my favorite things to do.

So, every time I look at swings now, I think of that episode of South Park where Officer Barbrady has to go back to third grade.  And there is a clip where he is on a swing set and he’s singing.  I couldn’t find a YouTube clip that wasn’t in German but I did find an audio clip here.

You want to know something insane?  I was given a brain with an “above average” IQ by God or the Universe (or maybe it was just an accident by science) and this is the kind of stuff my brain thinks about.  South Park.

When we first entered, there were some goats that we not hungry.  But luckily we found some hungry llamas.

What did you do this past weekend?
