Riley's Farm- Oak Glen

Last week I got to attend the 4th/5th grade field trip with Brianna's class. I think I was just as excited as Brianna was about the trip. I had never been there before and thought it would be a great opportunity to experience together. Having four little ones younger than her, it's not often that Brianna and I ever get to do anything together. So, needless to say, it was an amazing day had by both of us. I think the highlight of the day was that it was raining down here where we live which means that it was SNOWING up in Oak Glen, Yucaipa. Neither I nor Brianna have ever seen snow fall before so we were extra excited for that reason. Sadly, we had to ride on different buses on the way up there and back which was disappointing. I was looking forward to sitting next to her on the trip and embarrassing her in front of her friends. Just kidding. We brought home a fresh baked apple pie to daddy and the kids. I wish I would have taken a picture of that pie; it was unbelievable! Uncle Joseph, Daddy, Kenzie, Matthew, Elizabeth, Emily, Megan, Brianna & Mommy all ate apple pie and listened to the rain outside. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.
I came across this hilarious advertisement about the farm, check it out.
We will definitely be going back when the kids are off track.


  1. LUCKY!! Iliana and I were able to go in the beginning of the school year and it was great. I especially liked the etiquette classes they gave the kids. It was fun to watch the boys bow and the girls curtsy. It was fun fun fun! Hopefully we'll get lucky next time and see snow.
