Summer is my favorite season; however, fall is a close second and I love all the activities associated with this time of year. One of my favorite things to do in the fall is visit a pumpkin farm. We have been to a handful of local farms that have fall activities, but last year we discovered our favorite one yet! So, this past weekend we decided to return to that specific one, and the weather was perfect! Silas enjoyed it last year, but I think he was able to appreciate it even more this year as is depicted in the pictures below.
Trying his hand at milking a cow!
He had to have his picture on this ‘horse’
Feeding the llama that he repeatedly asked “Is it mad at mama?(from the Llama Llama book series for those of you that aren’t familiar)”
Brushing the animals
After about 5 attempts, he finally sat still long enough for a photo with the pumpkins. He is FULL of energy these days:)
Picture with mama on top of the stacked tires
Testing out the swings
Driving a tractor with daddy
Riding the ‘train’
Playing in the corn box and he eventually decided to lay down in it. He always picks fun things for me to wash out of his hair:)
Braving the slide by himself. He did this many, many times!
He had to get in a few quick bounces on the ball
Juice time! He liked the pumpkin more than what was actually in it.
One final snapshot to wrap up a fun day. This picture cracks me up because he insisted on posing with the gourd in his hand.(yes, that would be our strong willed son!)
THEN…on Sunday we had our LifeGroup over from church for hot dogs, s’mores, and a mini-hayride Troy rigged up for the kids. We had a great time, and it is always a blessing to hang out with these beautiful people.
Here are some of the kids on the ‘hayride’.
Molly and Cristina
Fellowship time around the fire
How about this marshmallow stuffed face! I love social gatherings, but it is a challenge to keep this little guy away from the food table. Needless to say he was on a bit of a sugar high that night!
So, that sums up our weekend! It went by entirely too fast, but it was filled with lots of great memories. On the adoption front, we still haven’t received our official number for October. Hopefully, we’ll have it by the end of this week! We’ll keep you posted:)
