A few days late, I know, but finally an update of part of the weekend: I tell you what – we were a pretty crazy group all together — 4 adults, ten children ages 10 and under. Quite a crowd!! We spent Black Friday at a nearby Christmas Tree Farm (it’s open year-round and is also known for its peaches and apples and animals) where we did not, in fact, buy a Christmas tree but instead spent the time playing pirates and eating apple cider donuts. I don’t think any of the four adults actually made any purchases – at the farm or online – that were not related to filling our tummies, so I guess we all really failed on finding great Black Friday deals. Add to that that we weren’t out of bed til late and didn’t manage to leave the house until around 2pm, and you could say that we skipped the major shopping day in its entirety.
Arriving at the farm, we all browsed the animals for a few minutes before descending on the play structure – a giant pirate ship.
After playing around outside for a while, we retreated to the warm cafe/shop for their famous apple cider donuts and Ghiradelli hot chocolates.
That’s Liesl trying to bargain for some more hot chocolate. One last photo – Claire running around high on sugar before we left. Tomorrow I’ll tell you about what else we did in North Andover 🙂
