Fall Fun

A few weeks ago, my sweet girl turned 2. I have been waiting to do the post on that until I have time to do it up right. In the meantime, here’s an adventure we had recently. My employer hosted a family fun day at a local farm/park. Fall is a good time to go, because they do some extra fall things this time of year. It turned out to be a pretty chilly day, but we had fun anyway! They had pony rides, a petting zoo, panning for gemstones, pedal cars, a play area, a hayride and a pumpkin patch. Dinah loved it all. She was pretty pumped all day about seeing the animals. When she laid down for her nap, I told her that after she woke up we’d go see animals and get to pet them. She responded, “I want pet goat! I want see sheep!” Once we got there, she fed a goat but was much less interested in the sheep and goats than she was in the pigs and the bunnies. She went in to pet the bunnies multiple times. We had planned to do the corn maze, and for Dean and me to do the zip line, but it was just so darn cold that we gave up and called it a day before we got to that. It was a great fall activity, even if it was a little cold.
