Fall kick-off!

So even though it's been Fall for a few weeks now, this Saturday REALLY felt like the season had started. Even though I had to spend the first part of my day at work (lame), the rest of the afternoon was spent at a local farm!

The first thing we did was take a hayride out to the pumpkin patch. While I was expecting a nice, slow ride out through the fields..... that was NOT the case. The fields were especially muddy and bumpy, and no lie-- I really thought some of were going to go overboard at one point. It definitely made for an adventurous ride!!



Those were about the only pictures we could manage, without falling into a mud pit!

We had PERFECT weather that afternoon.
Up next was the Corn maze, it was a total blast! Here you can see J fist pumping over his excitement ;)

There were stations set up all over the maze, and you had to figure out a riddle before you could finish! And the nice girl in the orange hoodie? Hands out candy if you get the answer right at the end. We had way too much fun acting like kids and cracking each other up in the maze.


Being corn-y ;)

There was also a walking path through the sunflower fields. A lot of them were already starting to die at this point, but somehow we ended up having a lot of fun here too :)


Throw in the jumping pictures, the sunflower poses, brotherly tug-o-war and feeding Cheerios to the goats, I think we had a pretty good start to the fall season.

Next up-- painting and carving the pumpkins we picked out.
And figuring out what the heck we are going to be for Halloween!!

  5. Your pictures are gorgeous! We are going to a pumpkin patch this week. However, it's going to be 88 degrees. That's just not right.

  8. I love it! You guys seem like so much fun! I want to do a corn maze so bad! I don't think Kyla would enjoy it too much yet though.

    You take such great pictures. What kind of camera do you have? I'm buying a new one soon and deciding between a Canon and a Nikon so I'm taking advice :)
