Black Island Farms

Okay, so I have to make a reservation on the Black Island Farms website before we go. And then I need to wait for confirmation that the day and time we choose is in fact available, so I probably need to do it soon.

A lot of you have expressed interest in doing this activity when your older kids are out of school. If we do that, then the best day would probably be this coming Friday at like 2:00 pm. Once we hit October, the prices go up. I know the people with napping kids want to go earlier, so I don't know how to make it work for everyone. We could set up two activities...perhaps one for Wednesday morning and one for Friday afternoon...but the only problem with that is the quantity of people. I am sure we could easily get 15 kids on Friday afternoon, but I'm not sure if we could get 15 kids for Wednesday morning. Anyway, let me know what your thoughts are on this and then I'll make the reservation(s). The price in September is $3.50 per person (including adults). I believe it goes up to $4.00 per person in October, so I guess it's not a huge deal either way. It's a lot more expensive if we don't set it up as a field trip, however, so we need to make sure we can get at least 15 people. Ask your friends and neighbors, too, in case they don't follow this blog.

I'm rambling. Just comment and let me know what day and time you would prefer and how many personages you'll be providing.
