Hidden Valley Outdoors ADVENTURE

The kids, their mom and I headed out to West Winfield this morning to go to Hidden Valley Outdoors. When we first saw the place, I said to Megan "I hope this does not turn out to be a bust" and she indicated that she had the same concerns, however it turned out to be fun.

They offer several different activities. The two free ones are fishing (you need to purchase the worms, though) and the petting zoo. The kids chose fishing first.
Unfortunately, after purchasing the worms, they realized that their Dad who usually did the baiting and taking fish off the hook was not with us and Megan made it clear to them that she was not going to do it.

Anyways, Cassandra stepped up to the plate and bravely put the worms on the hooks for herself and Tyler. For the most part, they were feeding the fish, because it seems that the fish have a lot of experience taking worms off the hooks. However, Cassandra did catch one fish.

The SAFARI RIDE was priced at ten dollars, but when I balked at the high price, it was lowered to five dollars apiece, so we took our own private safari ride, which was the most fun thing we did. We were driven around the woods and meadows and saw lots of animals, many of which came right up to the jeep and ate crackers out of the kids hands.

Unfortunately, my camera broke or maybe the battery just died, so I purchased a disposable camera and was able to take some pictures on the safari.

After the safari, we headed out towards West Winfield, and had lunch at Kylie's Diner, and the lunch was very good.

The we tried for two geocaches, but we only found one of them.

And then when we set out for home, I suggested we stop at THE COUNTRY KICHEN in New Berlin for ice cream. So, thats what we did!

It was a great day!
