Off to The Farm we go!

This past weekend we decided it was time to get out of the house and enjoy a fall activity. Some good ole fashioned fall family fun damn it! (Sorry, channeling my inner Clark Griswold there.) We decided to go to one of our favorite fall stops, The Farm.

They have a corn maze, pumpkin patch, a few animals you can pet, a pig show. It's pretty cool. We go every year, but it's so different now that we have Q and he's getting old enough to have fun (last year he was only about 6 months old, tho we got some great pictures there of him in his Halloween costume).  This year we got to see some animals up close and practice our animal sounds.

 He was doing good until we got to the cows, which I thought he'd love, as he's quite fond of his cow sounds. Turns out they were pretty young and had just been weaned. There was a lot of LOUD mooing from them. Q was a little freaked out and kept scowling and holding on tighter to Shawn. We came back later when they'd quieted down, but as we mooed to get Quinn to give it a shot, I think we got them worked up again. Whoops. We decided to head over to the pumpkin patch and pick some 'Ga's!' (which is what Q calls anything round.)

We did find a couple of little pumpkins to take home

Oh, and I did try and get a nice picture of Q & Shawn.

That picture cracks me up! We had a great time and the weather was so perfect. This has become one of my very favorite traditions. Hopefully we'll get back this year for a trip through the corn maze.  Oh, and because I can't resist, a few pictures from last year.
