This afternoon we took a BIG trip 5 miles to the Maple Hills Orchard.
Daddy & daughter lesson for the day - "this is the tassel... the ear... the leaves...the stock, ect" Super cute. We have corn close to our house and every time we drive by AJ yells out "CORN!" (it actually sounds like "dorn!").
Audrey thought she was super girl today - she tried to pick up a number of pumpkins, so the one that she actually carried we took home - the pumpkin was 3.5 lbs.
But, before taking it home, we had to draw on it with markers and then paint it.
And, now we have a new center piece for the kitchen table.
A little early morning jaunt took us to Lake Park to their Annual Fall Festival.
We. . .
bought some old chairs from a church at the flea market, rode on the barrel ride, danced to a group of fiddlers, ran through the craft fair, saw some old cars, a "nayh" (or horse to the rest of us) drawn wagon, went to a few "garbage" sales as Josh calls them, ate at the local cafe, and finally went home to a long awaited nap.
Great fall morning in upper Minnesota!
Tonight we might have gotten in our last pontoon ride too!
Starting with a trip to Rollag. Josh enjoyed showing Aurdery and I the horse drawn swather, horses in the barn, and old school tractors/equipment. Audrey grabbed a stock of wheat and held onto it for a good hour, it was funny to see her dragging it around.
Then we came home to a farm favorite. . . PICKING Rocks. Tomorrow they will start digging for the addition and garage so G &G Hooch came to help move the plants and pick rock around our house. Can you believe we found all of these in our yard!? Hard work is over, we'll purchase the rest :)
