Fun at the Farm

On the last day of Darin's visit we met at our house and drove over to a local farm. They had animals to pet and feed, games to play, a hayride, a hay maze, things to see in the barn, pumpkins, corn and other fun things to do. Some were free and others had a fee. We opted for the free ones. We hung out there until Darin, Jen & the kids had to leave for the airport. After saying our good-byes Dave, the kids & I hung out for a little bit longer. It was a beautiful fall day & it was nice to be out in the warm sunshine.

Bugs really enjoyed feeding the goats.

Playing around in the corn.

Our kids thought the maze was fun!

Get 'Em!
One of their favorite things to do is wrestle with Uncle D.

This little guy is a cutie pie.

My Little Pumpkin-Pie

Grannie bought a pumpkin for each of the grandchildren. They had a great time picking just the right one. E-boy wanted to make his into pumpkin pie as soon as we got home. Lol. We convinced him to enjoy it awhile as is.

Super Boy!
Bugs was very insistent on carrying his pumpkin all by himself.

Hay Ride!
On the way to the pumpkin patch & corn maze we rode on the pumpkin wagon.

Hi, Mommy!

Here We Go!
Dave sat under the pumpkin canopy with the younger three while Sweet Pea and I rode in the back.

On the Hunt
We went through the corn maze looking for Indian corn. Here is E-boy clowning around.

Back from the Maze
We found our corn & rode back on the haunted hay wagon this time.

Super Boy was loving the hay rides.

Ta da!
While Daddy stood in line to pay for the corn Boo, E-boy & I took turns dressing up the scarecrows. Here I am with my new bud.

I couldn't get the boys to pose as I wanted but at least they were both sitting still here. For about 5 seconds..........

Ladies Turn!

Just for the Fun of It
