Deanna Rose Farmstead

Yesterday morning Nonni and I packed up the boys and headed out to the Deanna Rose Farmstead.  I had never before been, and I was completely impressed.  It was incredible and I have a feeling we will be spending lots of time there over the next five years.  Luke loved his inaugural trip while Bowen pretty much slept through the entire experience!  Deanna Rose is designed to depict a turn of the century family farm with almost 200 animals and birds of prey, vegetable and flower gardens, a one room country schoolhouse, an old time fishing pond, pony rides and more (that is actually from the website).  The gardens are amazing, there are playgrounds, a petting zoo, goat bottle feeding, little tractor rides, cow milking, an ice cream parlor...the grounds are just absolutely stunning.  Several of the activities Luke is still too young to enjoy, but next summer I am sure he will be all over that place!

This trip was much more successful than our trip to the Kansas City Zoo in June when Luke screamed whenever he saw an animal...funny for mom, not so funny to Luke! :)

Ride em cowboy!

Man he look like Drew in this picture!

Not so sure he wants to feed the goat!

Very excited!

Checking out the fish!

Giggling with Nonni!

This was Bowen's experience at Deanna Rose!
