Although it is officially Fall here it sure doesn't feel like it. Maybe I have said this before but these temps are throwing me off. Up here in the Pacific Northwest it rains...quite a bit. With that said we have not had rain in so long!! Like, record breaking long streaks. Also, the temps have been in the 70s which is pretty much unheard of around here for this time of year. I have to keep reminding myself that it is October. With that said, it has been so much fun going to the pumpkin patches and corn mazes and not having to completely bundle up. :)
We checked a few things off of our bucket list this past weekend and had so much fun doing so!
Our county (which is lovingly referred to as "the Valley", since we are nestled among the foothills of the Cascade Mountains) hosts an annual Festival Of Family Farms. Basically family owned and operated farms open up to the public and put on lots of fun events. It runs two days and there are around 20 types of farms that participate. Some are dairy farms, shellfish farms, Llama farms, pony farms, pumpkin patches, apple orchards, wineries and berry farms. Since the kids are so young and Kendra still naps we have to plan our trips according to her schedule. We only made it to two farms, but it was so fun!
|Jaxson led us in and out of the corn maze. He was running so fast I could hardly keep up!|

|The only place she wanted to be. :)|
|Of course she wouldn't look at the camera|

|One of the farms had a cool playground called recycle junction. All the toys were made from old recycled materials.|
|Kendra was pretty possessive of "her" boat.|
|I climbed the tire tower....in boots with heels.|
|Why won't my children ever look at the camera?!|
What did you go?
