20 October - Bishop's Pumpkin Farm

Today, my friend Cherrie & I took the babes to Bishop's Pumpkin Farm. We had such a great time!
Mason, Cherrie, & Avery

We saw all kinds of animals at the petting zoo: sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, a donkey, cow, & llama.
Will kept putting his fingers through the cage, trying to poke the goat's face while saying "eye, eye" - the poor goat! 

It was incredible to watch these piglets nurse from their mother (who was huge, by the way!).

donkey (in case you couldn't figure that one out ;)

The actual petting zoo area was so much fun! I loved watching Will chase the goats around even though he was nervous about getting too close to any. There were a few times when he would get really excited & tap one, but then he'd run off as fast as he could (usually bumping into another child or goat in his effort to get away from the one he'd just barely braved touching).

Will also liked peeking in at the goats inside the barn. He was too scared to actually go in with them.

You know how you always see these adorable pictures of children sitting in pumpkin patches, behaving perfectly & actually smiling  - not Will!!! He wouldn't sit still! I had to run ahead of him just to get a single shot. I even resorted to telling him to kick a pumpkin, just so he'd "hold still" long enough for me to get something. Well, I finally settled for this picture - it was the best I could realistically hope for. I'm just trying to stay one step ahead!

Will enjoyed looking at all the different scarecrows that were lined up along the train tracks. He especially liked the dog with the vampire teeth.

They had old train cars to climb around in.

Cherrie & I decided it would be best if we sat in "the cage" while going for the train ride. Will seriously won't hold still, & this was our safest bet while traveling down the tracks. I would have hated for him to fling his body out of the moving train just so he could go see the cows or horses as we went past!



Before leaving, I just barely remembered to buy some pumpkins. They were so much cheaper than the grocery store & they had such a big variety to choose from!

We really enjoyed our day at the Farm. I can't wait to go back again (hopefully one more time before the season's over?)! I always forget how fun the Fall is with all the different seasonal activities, & it doesn't hurt to have such a fun little guy to share it with!
