Despite threatening morning clouds, the weather cleared and our group loaded up with sunscreen to enjoy a cool, sunny hike at Isham Farm. From the pick-your-own berry patches inhabited by roaming chickens, we trekked up the hill and down to the pond. We spread blankets and shared our snacks with the minnows (who eagerly tried Cheerios and goldfish), then turned back up the ridge for some bug hunting and rock climbing.

Our three families – with little ones ranging from infants to 3.5 years – enjoyed scenic views as we headed back to the parking lot (detouring to ‘ride’ the tractor on the way) and off to naps!
