What makes you happy? What gets you excited? What makes for a good day?
How about a gaggle of moms with loads of preschoolers tromping around a farm doing chores, picking pumpkins, riding on tractors, and jumping on hay bales?
If you live in the Charlotte area, Aw Shucks farm is a must-do with your kids. There is more to do than there is time to do it. We spent three hours there and didn't even make it to the paddle boats, corn maze, and walking trails in the woods.
Since my boys do this everyday in the sandbox with their apple or watermelon or cucumber seeds, they were pros right away. Granted, nothing they've ever planted has actually grown even the teeniest of sprouts, but still.
"Since we have a big woods in our backyard, can Daddy make a house like this for us to play in? Please? Please? Pleeaassee?"
Aw Shucks, for sure, made my kids and I happy, excited, and able to call today a good day.
