We had such a great time visiting Anderson Farms in Erie, Colorado. My boys and I went midday to hope to avoid the morning rush of the preschool aged families and the afternoon/evening rush of the teenagers ready for some paintball fun. It turned out to be the perfect time to go!

Taking an autistic kid to something like this can pose it’s challenges, hence going at a quieter time of day, but it was a great experience from start to finish. We started off at the animals. Brady was in love with the Donkey, as were the rest of us. We probably could have spent the whole afternoon with him!

After the Donkey, geese, bunnies, goats and more, we decided to to find some precious gems over at their mining display. The boys had fun searching for the various “rare” stones. Of course corn mazes are the big draw and Anderson Farms has a pretty amazing one. We didn’t get to try it out just yet because I couldn’t imagine chasing Brady around in there! Next time, the older boys and I will have to do the maze and the Zombie Paintball they have this year! Perfect way to draw in the teens and adults!
