Mainstay Farm

One of our FAVORITE fall traditions is to go to the Mainstay Farm. We love this place for several reasons. It is family friendly with lots to do for all ages. It is spread out and so you aren't on top of other people (unless you are in the lunch line). The fun includes hayrides, frisby, pumpkins, a free-for-all haybarn with bales to climb on and plenty hay to throw at each other, pedaled go-carts to race, a three story tree house, a large spider web to cross, a huge wooden maze, face painting, a place to feed goats and more. The weather was perfect this year and we had the Byrd's and half of the Robinson's join us in the fun. The coolest thing about the Mainstay Farm is when the Wilson family unabashedly shares their testimony for the Lord on the hayride ... Jesus is their Mainstay ... and ours!

The gang is all here and ready for a hay fight!

Beautiful daughters!

Sliding out of the 100 foot rippled slide on burlap sacks for extra speed ... wheeee!

Waiting for lunch in the way-cool converted barn ... oooh how I long to live in the country!

Simply lovely.

Get your engines, I mean pedals, started ... Go!

Can we go again?

Help, I can't find my way out!

We are soooo clever!

Balance act on the spider web.

I LOVE pumpkins.

Face painting ... halloween.

Face painting ... masquerade.

Waiting with Daddy for the hayride!

Happy family after a long, fun day!

You know that you were in my "neck of the woods"! You drove through Burleson to get to the Bethesda exit. You can exit Renfro or Alsbury to get to my house, about three miles east of I-35. I love Mainstay and was there when Garrett was five (now 14) on a field trip. My son, Matt, went to school with their kids at Pantego Christian. Glad you had fun! Any results on the tests?

I still have never been to Mainstay Farm. My kids have - not me. Doesn't seem fair. Glad you had a good time!
