Bluebird Gap Farm

We had a very warm weekend recently and decided to head down to Bluebird Gap Farm in Hampton off of a friend's recommendation. Randomly we ended up pulling into the parking lot at the exact same time as some of our friends, totally unplanned. We had both been inspired to visit by the same friend. The farm itself was kind of surprising because we turned off the interstate, traffic in every direction, in the middle of downtown Hampton right next to the Coliseum, but the directions said the farm was in 0.4 miles. Sure enough, there is a little farm smack dab in the middle of the city.

The farm had animals that you could see, pet, and feed, including horses, llamas, goats, emus, ponies, peacocks, chickens, turkeys, turtles, sheep, and all kinds of birds.

They had a great playground that the girls enjoyed, but Eleanor did take a little spill off a swing. She recovered well, though.

We had brought a picnic lunch and there were plenty of benches, places to lay a blanket, and covered areas to eat. We even saw a family setting up for a birthday party. It was a great outing for the morning and Eleanor loved visiting the farm.

These are such great pics! Peacocks always remind me of the Dutch hospital where Chris was born...somehow they would get inside and roam the hallways and screech! That slide is huge...brave Eleanor. And I love the flower and bee picture!
