Fall Fest @ "The Farm"

October weekends seem to just fly by! It's not always with anything in particular that's planned, but the tend to fill up rather quickly and before we know it Halloween will be over, Thanksgiving plans will be being prepared, and Christmas music will start filling the radio waves--not to wish the year away, but time just seems to fly!   
 
And with that being said, sometimes you have to take any chance you can to check something off your Fall Bucket List.  So...yesterday after church we grabbed a quick lunch and then headed out to a local park.  But this isn't just any park...it's a Farm Park!  Throughout the entire year they have cows, and goats, and pigs, and miniature horses, and sheep and some fun play equipment...but during the Fall they have a fun Fall Fest with some extra fun activities! 
 
Elyse is still a little too small to enjoy some of the activities, but the people watching and animal watching is pretty much all she cares about anyway! 
 
We got there right when it began so it wasn't too busy...we got a quick view of the cows but then headed to the pumpkin patch before it got too crowded.  She definitely thought she was muscle woman and could pick them up. 









Yup, this is the best I could do for a picture of us together!
 

My little Pumpkin Head!
While Hubby took our pumpkin back to the car, we headed back to the cows for an extended viewing...man this girl LOVES her cows! 
She really wanted to figure out how to take this one home!

 






 
One of the momma pigs recently had a little of babies so we got to check them out multiple times as well!  They were so stinkin' cute!









We also got to see a dog-herding demonstration with some ducks and sheep, we visited the goats, sheep, and miniature horses and finished things off with some kettle corn for a snack.  And then it was naptime...she crashed out in the car before we hardly got back to the highway and then slept for 3 hours when we got home!  Poor baby girl, I think the farm wore her out!

Awesome! We still haven't made it to a pumpkin patch (which means it ain't happening this year). Such great photos. I can't believe how big Elyse is getting! Love her outfit!
