Our First Family Hayride

This isn’t a guest post, I’m actually writing a post myself!!!

It wasn’t really hayride season yet, but I knew if we showed up at the farm on Saturday that we could convince someone to hook up a wagon, throw on some bales of hay and give Joshua his first ride.  And that’s exactly what happened.

A stop in the pumpkin patch. Joshua was sleepy, so we’ll have to do more pumpkin pictures later!

Fall on the Farm

Sunday Stroll

Fall on the farm is in full swing.  I’m not working there this year (at least I haven’t yet), since I’m pretty busy with school and am trying to get more rest, since I’ve found being pregnant to be pretty tiring.  Anyway, I did get to stop by yesterday and visit with my friend Sasha, who worked for us in high school.  She’s here visiting from California and had to stop by to visit her farm family.  I took these pictures as I walked around with her.

Families are picking out the perfect pumpkins.  I can’t wait to take the token pumpkin patch photo with my baby next fall!

Hayrides are running around the farm.  Well, it poured today so there were no rides, but yesterday they were a bit hit.

Our newest attraction is the corn maze.  My brother spent countless hours designing it over the spring, the corn was planted a few times as June’s rains washed it out, and finally it’s grown into this great maze.

Annabelle and Isabelle are the star attractions in the petting zoo.  Look how big the baby has gotten since June!

What does fall look like in your neck of the woods?

To see who else is strolling today, visit the Quiet Country House.
