Today after work I took the kids back to the farm for some fall fun. The weather has been so chilly that I was afraid there might not be another chance this season.
I try to "keep it real" and let them wear play clothes to play in, but everyone needs some good orchard pictures, right? I may or may not have bribed my four year old to smile. Ha!
Who cares. All is well that ends well. I got some pictures for memories sake, and Eli got to run around and jump on hay. It was a win/win for everyone.
I was even in a picture this time. The owner offers every week to take one of all of us, but I never let her since usually I'm still in gym clothes. It's not the best, but at least I'm somewhat presentable.
After the picture fest, we did what we came to do...have fun!! We saw the cows and goats. We looked at pumpkins, we went through the corn and hay mazes, but mostly we did this.
We watched a little boy literally soar to new heights as he jumped from bale to to bale. We cheered for him, and acted like he was on top of the world, and to a four year old, it probably felt that way.
It was the most perfect day with my babies. It was only one hour, but it was hour that counted. An hour where I was unplugged and completed in the moment.
We came, we played, we made memories, and we walked away with pictures that will forever define this precious season for our family.
