Beautiful Fall Day

posted Sep 25, 2016, 11:54 AM by Andy Jackson

Beautiful weather brought Saturday visitors to play at Country Connection.  The Lock brothers brought their friends, and area families came to enjoy the outdoor activities and select their perfect pumpkins.  The Rehoboth Church Youth group led by Ben Austic came to play in the late afternoon.  A fun time on a fall day at the farm.

Thank You Mother Nature

What a great weather gift Mother Nature has provided for Country Connection this past week!!  The wiggly giggly kids, the moms and dads, the grandpas and grandmas, the teachers, the ATSU med & dental students---all who came to play and oh what a good time Farmer Bob and Wife have had!!  Such a pleasure to see the buses and cars coming down the lane-- to hear the excited voices and see little bodies running to the two-headed caterpillar---and race to the giant slide---we are so blessed.  Thanks to all who come and give a small piece of time and share a slice of their life with us.

Family Fun For Sure

Shared an afternoon of pure joy with so many neat families that came to play at Country Connection!  Just the sounds of kids voices when they arrive as they see the animal bales, and they are eager to slide, to shoot the cannon, to bounce, to walk the maze, and just to run and jump in the straw.  Not a BIG Deal, but simple joy to Farmer and Wife as we watch families enjoy time together.  Fire pit hosted neighbors who roasted dogs and smores, then gathered their kids to head home for evening ritual of baths and rest and preparation for their week ahead. We are happy during this season and blessed to connect with these wonderful people.  Come see Us.

Perfect Fall Day

Certainly was a perfect fall day--beautiful blue sky and not a cloud anywhere--and families coming and going all day as they came to play at the farm.  Truly a fun-filled day and many pumpkins found their way to their new home.  The corn cannon was a popular spot and the slide provided reason for laughter and shouts for all ages.  Simple, wholesome, leisure, fun--what more do we need on this beautiful Saturday.

MUM is the Word!!

The mums are beautiful!!  Colorful, full, round mounds of blooms!!  Not a guarantee to be a permanent part of your landscape year after year, but we have had great longevity from the mums we have in our yard.  Come check out the beauty of the mums for sale and our talking pumpkins will speak clearly to you if you listen carefully--"Pick Me!  Take Me Home With You!"  Invite all to come and enjoy some refreshing time in the country at Jackson Acres.
 

2013 Season Has Begun

The 2013 Maze was christened last nite by the LaPlata FFA plus parents and the season has officially begun!  Fun crowd of teens held their first meeting of the School Year, called to order in the corn field, by President Hunter, following meal of roasted hotdogs and homemade ice cream!! We are so appreciative of Chapter Advisor Jessy Reuterdahl and her leadership for these neat kids. As darkness arrived, the maze was filled with with lights of cell phones and I heard shouts of "all clear below" from the 40'slide area of the playground. Certainly a good evening for Farmer and Wife to host and visit with our future leaders--we are blessed and encouraged and happy.
