Growing Out On A Limb



Last weekend we took our annual trip to the orchard – a beautiful fall Saturday that was perfect for being out in the sunshine and fresh air.  We apple picked, we pumpkin patched, we hay rode, we corn mazed.  It was a great afternoon!

Emery is in Beavers again this year.  The kids take turns taking home this stuffed beaver and doing fun things with it. It was his idea to get a picture in the pumpkin patch!  20161008_151239This is our third year going back to Willowbank farm in the valley.  It is a quaint little farm – big enough to keep the kids busy but not so big that it is overcrowded with people. 20161008_152825They also have a little petting zoo area.  The boys were keen and interested in the animals.  Eleanor was hesitant at first but she did pet a couple of donkeys with the tiniest bit of coaxing.  20161008_155446

Look at that.  They do like each other.img_7075
School pictures were a disaster this year and both boys were balking at having to do retakes, so I told them if they cooperated for shots at the orchard they wouldn’t have to.  I think they turned out okay!  And maybe a tad more interesting than the school pics?  img_7079-001



My bed-headed beauty.  She didn’t remember the farm trip from last year so it was all new to her.  She says she liked everything but the corn maze (thought I’m not sure why).


What a fun day!
