Pumpkin Farm

One of the things I love about living out here in Illinois is all the great friends I have been able to make. Seriously, they are AWESOME! And when you combine that with a BEAUTIFUL Fall season, you get a really great mother/child outing to a Pumpkin Farm! A little over a week ago we decided to make our Playgroup trip to the Pumpkin Farm nearby and it was a BLAST! Everyone had such a great time! The kids loved everything that was there... the animals, the pumpkins, the things to climb and play on. Everything! And I got to experience my first apple donut. DELICIOUS! So here are a few pictures from our little outing...

Jaxon, Bently, Graham, Hudson, and Lyla. We're missing 3 other kids and there are a couple more on the way.
Playing on the train...

Lyla getting ready to jump off the wall (don't worry, it was less than 2 feet high) which unfortunately resulted in...
...this (see pic below). She cried when it happened but I didn't know why until we got home. Poor girl. It is STILL healing! It didn't bleed or anything but this is definitely her biggest "owie" yet!
All the kids just loved running around!
One of my favorite parts was getting to feed the giraffe's! Lyla loved it at first but then got nervous.
We were all so surprised at how long their tongue's were! Sneaky sucker went straight for the gold! I guess we were taking too long feeding him one carrot at a time!
Lyla bonding with the baby goat.
Cute picture of Lyla and Graham. They were looking at...
... this HUGE pig and her little piglet's!

And just to prove that we were really at a pumpkin farm and not just a petting zoo, here is Lyla playing with a pumpkin :)
