Pumpkin Festival

This weekend our beloved farm (a local farm that is not really ours but we like to think it is) put on their annual Pumpkin Festival. There promised to be hay rides, baked goods, music, apple picking, pumpkin picking and lots of other fun things to do. Their hours are 10-5 everyday of the week and in order to pack in as much fun as we could before having to leave for lunch/naptime we got there shortly after 10am. When we got there and realized that we were the only ones there, it appeared that not everyone had the same goal as us. We were taken in however and given hot chocolate and hot apple cider while we sat by the warm fire and looked at old photo albums. When we were done our drinks we went back outside and saw that others had decided to join in the Pumpkin Festival fun. We hopped on the first tractor ride that took us on a tour of the farm and made a couple stops for us to pick apples. We didn't actually pick apples though because we're still trying to get through the apples from our first visit to the farm.

Mya had a great time eating apples though!

Then it was off to the pumpkin patch where we made sure to pick the most perfect pumpkin! The ground was a little bumpy which made it hard for little feet to walk on without getting tripped up.

After this it was time to go home and have lunch and hit the hay. In the next couple days we'll be carving up his and hers pumpkins so you'll have to stay tuned to see if you can guess who's is whose!
