Just a warning - this year we did a LOT of fall-slash-Halloween activities. This is just the recap of the first. And yes, it's November already. I hadn't intended for there to be such a lag in me blogging our activities, but whoops...it happened.
The first of our fall activities is our favorite tradition, visiting Howell's pumpkin farm. We have done this every year since Mason was born, which means this was our 4th trip. Yes, I remember taking Mason there when he was just three months old. I think Byron thought I was nuts at the time, but this year I even heard him say something about being thankful that I (ridiculously) insisted this become our tradition. We all love it. This year it was FREEZING but we still had a good time.
First up, the pony rides. Mason rode our favorite horse, Mocha. Why is she our favorite? There is no good reason other than that's who he rode last year.
Up next were the swings and the wiggle cars. I don't know if I have mentioned this but I am pretty obsessed with the wiggle cars. I'm so good at them! Okay, so the other drivers had the average age of four, so I guess I have an unfair advantage. Mason and I rode them for quite a while. Long enough that I bet there are several families who get home and say "Why is there a weird adult in this video of our kid on the wiggle cars?" Well, that's just me.
A definite favorite this year were the teeter-totters. I don't know where this new love came from, but he didn't want to leave them!
We did actually buy pumpkins this year, but we still haven't actually taken the hayride out to the pumpkin patch to pick them. I also didn't get any photos. It was just too cold, I guess. I love this little tradition of ours. If it were warmer, I'm sure we would have done the corn maze and the corn shooter, too, but that will be fun to try next year!
