Today was supposed to be our big farm and pumpkin patch day. I decided that since I have so much time with the boys alone I needed to get out and do something really fun. I looked around online and found a great farm-Faulkner Farm. It’s 75 miles away but it really looked cool so I decided to just go. We were supposed to go on Monday, but it rained all day. It also rained all day Tuesday. Today was beautiful-sunny with a high of 68.
It was a rough morning filled with uncooperative Connor, fussy Logan, and grumpy me just because I’m worn out. We made it to the car to begin our great farm adventure. It took just about an hour to get to the farm. We pull up and we are both just so excited. I get everyone and everything unloaded, we walk up to pay the entrance fee and….
The farm is closed. Because of the dad gum rain. It made everything too wet. I almost cried. The nice worker felt so bad. “I hope you didn’t drive far” she says. Yeah, we pretty much did. She let us buy a pumpkin, gave Connor some stickers, and we left the farm. Connor didn’t seem to mind too much. The kid’s never been to a farm before so for all he knows that’s all there is to it. He was happy with his pumpkin and his stickers.
Well, after an hour in the car I refuse to go home defeated! After a few tears in the car I decided to make some lemonade out of our lemon of a day. The farm lady told us about a fish hatchery a few miles down the road, so off we go. Instead of beautiful farm scape and scenic pumpkin pictures, this is what we get.
But feeding the fish was fun. Even Logan was happy to be at the hatchery.
I called my mom and through the wonderful world of the internet, she found a park nearby where we could have a picnic and play. It was really a beautiful day and we all enjoyed our time outside. Well, except for Logan who was ready for another nap.
Let’s take a closer look at that classic face…
On the way home we stopped at a little fruit stand and loaded up on some deilcious apples and oranges and fresh veggies. I made Connor sit by the pumpkins so I could have at least one pumpkin picture today. I would have made Logan pose too, but he was totally out.
