Fall Fest Fun

After weeks of rain and ugly weather, we are lucky enough to be in a time of Indian Summer. We took advantage of the beautiful weather to do some fall fun with the kids this past weekend. A farm on my way to work has been advertising a fall festival for awhile, and while I didn't think it would be a huge event, it was close and it was cheap, so we decided to check it out. I'm so glad we did; the kids (and Dan and I) had a blast! For $15 total, we got to do a petting zoo, a corn maze, and probably the longest hayride I've ever been on. After the hayride, we let the kids pick their own pumpkins. Some pictures from our day:

Owen petting the goat. For whatever
reason, he always wanted to pet the animals
right near their butts.
Emily petting the cow. These animals were so
laid-back! The only one that really wasn't was
the donkey. He ended up licking Emily's
head, which she couldn't stop laughing about.
In the corn maze....we let the kids determine which
paths we took. I'm pretty sure they
got their dad's (terrible) sense of direction.
