Soooooooooo much fun!
The kids LOVE Dan Dan the ChooChoo Man, The little petting Farm and all the beautiful colors.
My kids love riding on the wagon and picking out what they are gonna plant (read: play in the dirt) this year in the yard.
Very cool and earthy experience for all to be had. Great floral/yard ideas and Great Prices too!!
