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 🙂

15 Ways to Do May Right in 2021
Busy Barns Adventure Farm happily invites you and your family to join us for our 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 with us and a tasty treat. Our warm, scrumptious Apple Cider Donuts are back this spring by popular demand. Get them while they last. Yummy!
2 - Celebrate Children's Book Week (May 3 - May 9, 2021)
Children’s Book Week is the yearly acknowledgement of books for children and the joy of reading. Try visiting your local library and picking out a new children’s book to enjoy. Share it on your social media and tag @lakecountryfamilyfun and #lovelcff
4 - Celebrate May the 4th (be with you)
5 - Visit a Local Preschool in Waukesha County
6 - Support Your Local Fire Department
In past years, May has been a time for many of our local fire departments to host pancake breakfasts and other open houses for the community and fundraising efforts. While there may not be actual events hosted in May 2021, we still encourage families to discuss fire safety at home, review their safety plans, and thank a firefighter for their community service.
