Obesity is rampant!
We went to Port Farms in Waterford on Monday with our children and their families. Port Farms is a working farm that has taken several acres of their land and set up a place for children and their parents to learn about farming.
Part of it is educational and part of it is just fun. The grandchildren had a great time on the slides, playing in the dirt with dozers, milking a wooden cow, getting lost in the corn maze, taking a hay ride (well actually it was just a wagon ride..... no hay,) among many other activities.
Instead of a room full of balls, the farm had a room full of corn. (I understand that rolling around in the corn for awhile was quite the skin softener.) It only took the oldest grandson a few minutes to blossom into a very rotund little boy. Luckily his obesity was solved by pulling his shirt out of his pants. (Boy I wish it was that easy!)
His mohawk hairstyle fit right into the country theme. I overheard a father commenting on my grandson's hairstyle to his son, "That boy looks like a rooster!"
