Being that we are always last minute with everything, it makes sense that we wait until the very last weekend before Halloween to hit the farm and pumpkin patch. And that's just what we did this Sunday afternoon. After browsing the local library's book sale...fill a bag for $1 (can't beat that! ) ... we headed up to a farm not too far away.
It's a lot less crowded than the popular spot near our home. So we've been coming here the last few years. There's always lots of young animals to see and pet. This year they had a calf born in September, two goats, some young pigs, turkey chickadees (i have no idea what a youth turkey is called!) and the usual alpacas and llama. Here K & E are giving Lil Red a pet and some love.
There's enough things to do ... buy cider and cider doughnuts, hay rides, pony rides, and a giant hay bale pyramid to climb and play on.
And of course ... there's the picking of the pumpkins. E seems to have found a winner.
Hopefully K & E will be able to look back and remember these family traditions ... simple as they are. If not I'll have the photos to remind them! -wink.
