A Day at The Seven Acre Woods with the Grandchildren
We spent the loveliest day at the Seven Acre Woods, in Willis, Tx. It’s just about 20 minutes from our house and is full of wonderful activities for children. They have one of the nicest petting zoos I’ve ever seen, putt-putt golf, swings and little cars for every age, zip lines, jungle gyms, a ‘beached boat’, barrel train, hayrides…and the list goes on and on. For $6.00 a piece, we thought it was a great bargain. We spent most of the day there!
(This fee didn’t include the hayride and barrel train ride.)
The goats just made me laugh with their friendly antics. Colin loved them!
The people who put this place together..it covers seven acres…really designed it to be enjoyable for all ages from tiny tot to mid-teenagers. There was so much to do, that I thought I share just the petting zoo. The children LOVED it so much.
Nikolai is entranced with animals and the little goats were so tame and friendly that they didn’t mind at all is energetic hugs.
For some reason the donkey was really attracted to Nikolai!
Brennan helped me feed the llamas, ponies, and the chickens. I’ve never seen such plump chickens!
They were laying eggs where the children could easily see the days ‘collection’.
Brennan loved feeding the llamas. They are ‘delicate’ eaters. :o)
If you ever wanted your children to experience farm life, this is the place to go! They had calves, chickens, ponies, llamas, goats, and deer too. It’s a family owned and operated place. A 12 yr.old was busy playing with the newest baby goat when we arrived. One of his jobs, was just to love on these sweet animals who had a gorgeous home in the play area..plus a large pasture to be in when off duty..on the back of the property.
Funny..I never made it into the photos. I was taking them. These were all taken by my cell phone! Can you believe it? My battery went out with the first photo. My phone is new and I had no idea how good the photos would turn out.
Well, I do hope you enjoyed this ‘day’ with the grandkids. There’s just something so sweet about children and petting zoos.
(Well…I have to admit, I rather love petting zoos myself. :o)
