14 Things to do in May with your Family

Hello May! Hopefully, the April showers (and snow) are over, and we can all smell the beautiful May flowers! I love May, because the weather is turning warmer, and it means summer will be here before you know it. Before wishing summer to be here, though, let’s enjoy all the fun that May has to offer and do May right right here in Lake Country and Waukesha County. Find 14 things to do in May with your family below.


On Saturday, May 18th from 12pm – 2pm we’ll be hosting a Mental Health Resource Fair in our parking lot. The hope is to help take away the stigma of mental health conversations. Many of us could use a little help in the day, whether it’s an intensive treatment program, or just taking more time for self care, or anything in between! Come learn about the resources we have in our community to help yourself, your children, your loved ones, etc.! Our organization list includes therapy, psychiatry, experts in nutrition, women’s health, youth and adolescent behavior, meditation, yoga, sleep hygiene, art therapy, and more!


This will be a casual event, zero judgment. Come grab a coffee and wander through the booths. There isn’t a single person out there that couldn’t use a little time for yourself!

Barnyard Adventures New Family Hours in May 2023

  • Sundays May 7th, May 14th, May 21st, May 28th
  • Open 9:00 – 4:00 pm

Busy Barns Adventure Farm happily invites you and your family to join in for their Barnyard Adventures and Lambing & Kidding Days.  Make plans to spend the day on the farm and create memories with your family and friends.  Spring brings the birthing of all the new baby animals in our petting farm.  Come get some cuddling time in with the cutest little lambs, goats, bunnies, kittens, chicks, and all the lovable critters.  Grab a little animal feed and you will literally have them eating right out of your hand.  Then take a leisurely stroll around the farm and partake in the 40 plus activities in our Acres of Adventures.  Play in the straw, race each other on the obstacle courses, test your agility in the ropes maze, dare to defy the giant tunnel slides, spin around in the hamster wheels and so much more.  Stomach starting to growl?  Grab lunch and a tasty treat. Their warm, scrumptious Apple Cider Donuts are back this spring by popular demand.  Get them while they last.  Yummy!
