Christmas Tree Farm

Taft was DYING to go to the Christmas Tree Farm. We promised him that this year we would let him tie the tree to the top of the car. it's something that he has wanted to do for years and since his tree is usually about 4 ft tall (it only goes in his bedroom) we have put it in the trunk. Yes - we are bad parents.
So off we went for the hour drive. He was very excited to get there. We were excited that it didn't look like as many people as usual and they had parking directors.
What we were not excited about was the price change. You buy tickets for all the little things to do. Hayride, reindeer train, bounce area, horse ride, etc. Those were the same. So off we went for those....

Taft finally got on the bounce pillow without being scared.  He even figured out how to stand up this year.

The Reindeer Train is always a favorite of Taft's.
And so is the horse ride.  He is just happy he gets a "big" horse and not a pony.
We only get Taft's tree at the farm. We have a fake tree in the family room. Taft gets a 4 ft for his room for his ornaments. It has been $15 for the last two years. This year they wanted 435. That was not going to happen. I explained it to Taft. At first he was not too happy to leave without a tree. But then I remembered something.
Florida can not grow awesome Christmas trees. We just can't. I love a good Frasier Fir and they don't, will not, grow here. Taft's biggest complaint last year was that his tree was "prickly and pokey". Pre-cut Frasier's are not. I took him to the pre-cut area at the farm to look at a few. He loved them. Of course those were like $70. But we decided to do the hayride that takes you too the trees anyway.

On the hayride.

This is what we found near the tree we cut last year.  A new little baby.
 
We also went to the petting zoo area. Taft was very excited to get to hold a little chicken, pet the bunnies, and feed some goats. The old white goat was a little too happy to see us. It also ate part of the cup in my hand.
We left without a tree. But we went straight to our local Lowe's and picked up a 5 ft Frasier Fir for $19. And yes - we tied it to the top of the car for the 5 mile ride home.
