Free tickets to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair!
When I was little, my elementary school took annual trips to The Royal. Boy, I sure looked forward to those day trips. Partially because I got to ride on a big, exciting yellow school bus, but also because I just really loved the animals there. I was just telling my husband the other night that one year, my classmates witnessed the birth of a calf (while I was checking out some smelly chickens and goofing off… so I missed it ,of course). Isn’t that so cool?
My Dad lived on a farm for awhile when he was little so growing up, he taught me about different breeds of cattle, farm life, etc. And it wasn’t difficult to see these things in action because where I lived, farm land was just a five minute drive away. Nowadays, farms are few and far between in these parts of Ontario, and though I try to teach our kids about farm life, it’s not easy to show them first-hand.
This year, we’re taking them to The Royal thanks to the generosity of my friends at Toyota Canada. My daughter is really (and I mean really really really) into horses, and is beyond excited to go. And since I’m a sucker for all things animal-related, I’ll admit I’m giddy about it, too.
