Great Excuse to Get OutsideOn a 30-something-degree February day with traces of snow still covering the ground, it can be easy to want to go somewhere indoors. This even at Drumlin Farm was the perfect excuse to get outside though. Going in and out of the barns and the Farm Center Building made it easy to enjoy the outdoors, warm up and then go out again. Also the event was well planned with a second showing of the groundhog so all children were able to see it, and an adorable groundhog kids craft. We've been to Drumlin Farm for a few events but this was my favorite yet.
