It’s 8am here in Ohio….yeah I am in Ohio! We have been to Kings Island theme park yesterday & it was brilliant! The rides are bigger, better, faster & scarier than the UK by miles! It’s about the size of chessington and Thorpe park put together when you include soak city – which is the water theme park.
I did about 4 hrs walking and riding before I caved in and asked for a wheelchair, I think I over did it as my foot is now really sore. Luckily today we are heading back to Indiana so we will be spending quite a bit of time in our mini van so I will be able to rest my foot!
I have also crossed something off my bucketlist while we have been here, but I will share that with you later….however I do feel that just our journey here and hunting down Amish people on Friday could also count as as road trip….so expect another blog about that soon too!
So time for another cross off the bucket list!
Sunday 13th April me and some of my friends and their little munchkins headed off to Manor Farm & Country Park in Hampshire where I was going to be Milking A Cow! My friend from work & fellow blogger Heather also came along and decided earlier this week that Milking A Cow was a rather random thing to do & fits in quite well with her blog (http://hpullan88.blog.com) so she was going to give it a go too!
I made the people at the farm aware that we both wanted to do it and surprisingly it wasn’t the first time that they have had someone there doing in because it was on their bucket list! We had a bit of a look round the farm first then it was the time….the farmer arrived & gave us all a bit of a talk about the cows and the milk (it was mainly for the kids – although we did all learn something!) and then it was ready steady go!
The cow that I milked is a Jersey Cow called Abigail, she is pregnant and her little calf is due in August.
Being Told How To Hold The Teet!
Hoping She Doesn’t Hoof Me In The Face!
Getting Stuck In!
I Was A Natural!
Even Mumma Gave It A Go!
One of my friends 2 little ones even had a go!
Afterwards we all went our separate way for a while and had a look round the farm then some of us went on a bit of a walk round the bigger fields to see some of the Lambs, Chickens, Turkeys and Pigs!
The Biggest Cock I Have Ever Seen hee hee hee!
After all that walking the kids wanted a bit more fun in the park and gave the adults a chance to sit down have a natter and enjoy some of the great south coast sunshine!
All in all I had a great morning at the farm & I am grateful to those that came to share this experience with me, alothough this is MY bucketlist it is a journey we are all taking together & I love that you were there to support and laugh at me today!
The Next Thing To Be Crossed Off……Go To A Rodeo!
If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go? So many people bounce that question around and if you are anything like me you will struggle to answer it as there are so many places in the world you want to see…..
Whenever Matt and I are shopping we always take a look in the travel agents to see what last minute deals are on offer and there is normally one for Dubai. It was never really somewhere that I wanted to go – but after seeing on offer so often, I thought I would take a look and I fell in love – it looks so beautiful!
Where Would I Stay? As this is all about a Wanderlust then I am going all out and picking Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai! Now I would LOVE to stay in a Signature Suite, they are massive suites over 3 floors and there is a floor to ceiling window into the lagoon! Now the chance of me getting to do that is insanely low! So I would pick a Deluxe Room, which is just a basic hotel room – what are the chances I will actually be in the room all the time! However if I cant afford to stay there then I would probably pick Jumeirah Beach Hotel and select a Ocean Superior King Room.
What Would I Do There? Well apart from some shopping in Dubai Mall and soaking up the sun there is a few things that I would like to do! Swimming with Dolphins at The Palm, spend the day having fun at Aquaventure Waterpark, go up the tallest building in the world the Burj Khalifa.
Who Would I Take? This is a difficult one as I would love to go with Matt, however the rules around male & female contact puts me off slightly, so I would probably go with some girlfriends!
How Amazing Would This Be!
