A Day Down On The Farm!

Nothing helps bring out the inner Cow-Poke in us City Folk....better than a day down at our local corner farm....I mean what could be better on a Fabulous, Sunny, Autumn afternoon...than Hayrides, pumpkin picking, Sunflowers, stinky yet utterly cute farm animals and hanging out on one Super Sized...Super Cool Tractor!




There has to be something said about spending the day...getting in touch with our roots...communing with land....and finding enjoyment and entertainment with it's offered bounty. I highly recommend it to all...young and old...and especially to all you indoor enthusiasts....I promise that your 800 hours of recorded shows on your DVR or the latest mission of World Of Warcraft has nothing on getting your hands dirty...and breathing in the smell of cow poop and sunflowers....






Then to savor that feeling you get when after an hour of searching for that one perfect pumpkin....you finally find it....still there waiting just for you to pick...there really isn't anything else quite like it...














I loved our day down on the farm...a day where we just loved being together...as a family....It was time away from all that calls our attention....those day to day things that make us put "us" time on the back burner. It was a day where when Juice leaves again for another deployment in 2 months, we have stored away for when we start feeling a tad bit lonely.





Who knew....that one tractor....a bunch of hay....2 pumpkins...lots of dirt and 1 sunny day could be such a remarkable thing!

Cute pictures! I've always been a country girl, but I'm living in the 'burbs right now so, smelling cow poop makes me think of home :)

What a great looking day! It's always refreshing to get the family out for a day in the outdoors away from urban (or suburban!) chaos.

And on an unrelated note, I was just in NYC this weekend for only the second time ever (moms weekend away) and it was so much fun!

Gorgeous photos. Your little man is getting so big!

I disagree with the WoW comment though, they always add pumpkins for Halloween...haha.

It looks like you guys had a great time. I am debating whether my big kids need a trip to the farm this year since we have gone most years. I bet they would still enjoy it if I can find the time.

Cow poop and sunflowers! LOL!!!

These pic are just so precious!

For the life of me I can not remember if I stopped by to thank you for stopping by my blog. (Uh, what? Redundant much?) THanks for your sympathy in the loss of my grandmother.
