When I say bundled up, the high temperature of the day was about 6…so yeah, it was chilly.

We arrived at the farm just before our reservations to take the horse-drawn trolley to a cabin in the woods.  These were our drivers…

The poor dears had icicles hanging from their noses!

We cozied up for a ten minute ride.

And arrived to Santa greeting us at the cabin!

The cabin was decorated floor to ceiling for Christmas and a pianist filled the room with Christmas carols (HJ requested Rudolph).

We were served cinnamon rolls and apples, and drank hot chocolate with marshmallows.

At first, HJ didn’t want to go over to Santa.  He kept his eye on him and eventually warmed up.

And once that happened, he talked his ear off.

He told him all sorts of stuff.  We learned that Santa has a bull mastiff and 3 boxers, in addition to the reindeer.  But the reindeer are magic.

After about 45 minutes, we took the trolley back to the barn. There, we were able to go on horse/pony rides.  HJ was excited to get on the BIGGEST one.

But when it was someone else’s turn, he was fine with the little guys.

We went inside the barn to warm up a bit, and were greeted by sweet mini-ponies with awesome hair styles.

As well as the cutest, tiniest goats and a couple of sheep.

HJ adored the bunnies and wanted to take this one home.

There was also a loft area with tire swings and hay to jump in that we played in for a while.  As you can see in the bunny picture, we were cold.  I think HJ would have loved to stay there all day, but we needed to get home so we could warm up!

I absolutely loved taking him to the farm to see Santa, and loved hearing how many families do this as a tradition.  There is a rumor this might be the last year Heritage Farms is doing Breakfast with Santa, but if not, we would love to go back next year!  They also have breakfast with the Easter Bunny we can check out!

Stop back Wednesday morning, I will be sharing how HJ almost ruined Christmas for the kiddos at breakfast, and why every parent shot me death glares.
