Christmas Country-Style #TimberlineCountryChristmas

Last weekend we ventured out to Maple Ridge to check out Timberline Ranch’s Country Christmas.

It was a bit of a drive, but we were pleased that we made it out there.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted and given ballots to vote on our favourite Christmas trees, decorated by local businesses, and our tickets for the pony rides.

Our little lady picked the purple one (of course), the wee lad, chose the one with cars on it and Mum and Dad voted for the same one (’cause great minds think alike).

After voting, we popped into the bakery and helped the cow hands decorate some sugar cookies to look like snowmen. The kiddos did a great job of decorating!

We hopped aboard the wagon and ventured on up to the barn where the petting zoo, pony rides and hay maze were. The kids loved the goats, llama, ponies, cow and donkey!

The highlight of our visit was definitely the Pony Ride! Our daughter hadn’t been on a horse in quite a few years and Captain Awesome had never ridden one before.

After running around through the Hay Maze, we hopped aboard the wagon again and drove around the property on our way back to the Lodge.

Once inside, we ventured downstairs and enjoyed the Snowball Room, the dress up photo ops, decorated a couple of ornaments and played a few games.

The kids had a really fantastic time and the cosy feeling you get being on a ranch, really gives you a different perspective on Christmas. It was quite nice getting away from the hustle, bustle and noise of the city and just enjoy some peace, quiet and tranquility.
