A day at the farm

Yesterday Aidan and I headed out to a farm in the middle of freakin' nowhere that took us over an hour to get to after getting lost more than once local farm with our Mom's group for a day of pumpkin picking, sunshine, animal petting and let's face it, picture taking!

The weather was perfect- warm, sunny and not a cloud in the sky. Not your typical Fall day that I'm used to as a born and bred Ohioan, but still lovely!

There were SO many different activities for kids to do (roller slide, pedal carts, big jumpy things, zip-line, pony rides, duck and pig races, mining for "gold", ropes courses and so much more!). Unfortunately Aidan is too young for most of them, but it'll be a wonderful place to take him next year!

We rode on a "hayride" out to the pumpkin patch where all the babies got to "pick" their own pumpkin. The owner informed us that they don't have a large crop this year due to some type of shortage. I remember hearing about this a few months ago. I hope it doesn't affect my pumpkin pie making later on this season!

They also had a "pumpkin spookatorium" which was not spooky at all. It was filled with about 200 pumpkins carved with different designs. We saw everything from Tim McGraw to the 7 Dwarves to the Texas state flag. This was one of my favorites... Tigger!

Aidan really had a great time. One of his favorite things was the petting zoo. He didn't pet anything, but he LOVED seeing all the animals. There were chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows, rabbits and a horse.

He really liked the horse.

Do you know how hard it is to get 5 kiddos under the age of 16 months to look at a camera at the same time?

Aidan with his good buddy, K. I have no idea what they are talking about. Perhaps politics? Or maybe wondering why they are wearing jeans, long sleeves, a sweater and a winter hat when it's 75 degrees out? Hmmm....

Aidan REALLY liked the pumpkins. He kept touching all the different ones!

They are also open at Christmastime. There's a cut-your-own-tree area, visits with Santa, a North Pole village and lots more. I think we may going back in December to check it out!

  1. Too funny about the sweater and jeans conversation! :) Did you go to Dewberry Farms? I've heard of it, but haven't gone. I'd like to take James to a pumpkin patch this weekend.
