We’ve been promising S a trip to Eugster’s Fall Festival for a few weeks now. And since this weekend seemed like it will be the last time to sneak in some outdoor fun, we packed up and headed to the farm. The sun was shining but it was extremely windy. It was great to just let S run around and not worry about lugging a stroller. Plus, we figured, if she DID get tired out (highly unlikely), then we’d just put one of the red wagons to good use.
Our first stop was at the gift shop to pick up some cider donuts for our tractor ride to the pumpkin patch. Sort of a mini-tradition we started last year.
S and Dadda give them a thumbs up!
The tractor took us to a nice, dry field this year, where the pumpkins were already picked and just scattered around. I liked this much better than traipsing through muddy corn fields to find a pumpkin.
A pic of the fam that actually turned out ok. Thanks to the lady sitting across from us who offered to take the picture. I need to be better about offering to do that for people!
S taking our pumpkins to be weighed and paid for.
After taking our pumpkins to the car, S got a ride back to the farm in a wagon. Then we went to see a puppet show, which was actually more like puppets dancing to really loud music, but whatev. S liked it and asked for more when they were finished. She even busted a move during the performance.
Then it was time to visit the animals. And play in the ginormous sandbox. And slide down the slides. And hold a sweet little kitty. And feed a baby goat a bottle of milk.
I had to laugh when the guy who gave us the bottle told S not to drink it! It’s been a while since she’s used one!
A few more pics with the jumbo pumpkin and it was time to call it a day.
I loved seeing S interact more with the farm experience this year! She’s getting so big! The day really tuckered her out. We kept her awake (through Daddy’s efforts to make her sing every song on her WeeSing in the Car CD) until we got home (because any parent knows that cat naps in the car are the devil!) and she’s now going on a 3 hour nap. Yay for tired kiddos! 🙂
