MOMS Club Tours the Farm

Old McMicky’s was a farm, and on that farm there was a MOMS Club!

To kick off the month, we ventured to Odessa to visit Old McMicky’s Farm. Situated on picturesque Crescent Lake, the farm is part of the historic Camp Keystone, where Burt Reynolds was once a camp counselor. The farm reopened in 2013, and now introduces farm life to the masses, one guided tour at a time.

Guided by the expert employees of the farm, the kids were amazed as they got up close and personal with farm animals like goats, sheep and chickens. The tots (and moms!) learned so much, and embraced getting out of the suburbs. The hay and horse rides were both a highlight of the day, but milking a cow might be the most memorable. Some of our kids dove right in to try it, while others said, “I am NOT doing that!” We capped the day off having a picnic lunch by the beautiful lake.

But the fun for the month didn’t end there. We followed up our farm visit with a patriotic trip to Mission BBQ to celebrate Veterans Day. We got back outdoors with a play date at Baybridge Park, where we collected nonperishable food items for our November charity. We ended the month with a moms’ night out to see Bad Moms Christmas at Regal Citrus Park. We are looking forward to lots of festive holiday activities in December.

Our November philanthropy was a monetary donation and a non-perishable food drive to benefit Feeding Tampa Bay, as well as a monetary donation to the Children’s Board Heart Gallery of Tampa Bay, dedicated to finding forever families for Tampa’s foster children. In addition, our Guppy and Starfish play groups teamed up for a pajama drive to benefit Voices for Children Tampa Bay, which works with Guardian ad Litem volunteers to provide support and advocacy for children in the area.

We are always looking to connect with new moms and local businesses. If you have a business or a babe, please visit http://www.momsclubofwestchase.com to get in touch. Interested in becoming a member but not ready to commit? Attend an event before joining. We’re sure you’ll want us for keeps!
