Dewberry Farm

We went to this awesome place called Dewberry Farm this morning and had a blast. That has got to be one of the neatest places in town. We got there right when it opened. Very good move on our part. If you're in the Houston area and you have kids, you have to go! They have way more to do than I was able to capture on camera. I did the best I could to document our time, considering that my child will only look at the camera once every 100 shots. I love him though!

Hay ride to the pumpkin patch.


Looking for a pumpkin.


This is the best pose we could do.






Proud of our pumpkin!










I've never seen freeway ramps for goats.


Checking out the baby chickens.


In honor of Cupsy and Brother Chicken.


Rubber ducky races




Jackson's favorite part: the giant hay pile!












One of Jackson's nicknames is Turkey.


Munching some kettle corn on the way home.


We heard Curt and Jackson's song - George Strait's "The Best Day" - when we got in the car. So fitting!

How adorable! It looks like Jackson had a blast! We go to a farm here similar than that but yours looks even cooler.
New England Nights was AWESOME! Tell your mom she rocked the house!

Mandi said...

That place looks so neat...wish we had something like it around here. I love the photos of Jackson and his daddy playing in the hay...super cute!

Becca said...

How fun! We just went to a farm last week and had a ball picking out pumpkins, potatoes, carrots and lots of other things. Jackson looks like he enjoyed every minute!

The Barfuss Family said...

That does look like the best day. You did a GREAT job catching it on camera. :)

Dear Daddy Blog said...

Oh my word. My fave pics were of the hay pile. So sweet!

I call my kids "turkeys" too. My aunt called me turkey growing up and I have passed on the turkey tradition. :)

Have a great Sunday,
Michelle

Amanda - your little mister has got to be the cutest thing around!! One of those pictures captured his little personality so sweetly I could almost hear him giggling! He is adorable with a capital A!

Okay now, little momma - the pictures of you are cute but this grandmother is ready to see one that shows off your baby bump. GRIN!

Loved your birthday song on the LPM blog. Hope you had a good one!

May God bless you as richly as we are blessed by you sharing your life and family with us!

He is soooo cute! And growing up so fast. His looks are changing from baby to little boy. Thanks for sharing!

lori said...

Looks like fun and Man Jackson is such a good looking boy, he looks so much bigger all of a sudden, maybe cause he is a big brother in training

Dionna said...

Love the father-son pictures in the hay. Looks like a fun place and a beautiful day for it.

Erin said...

Jackson's face while eating the kettle corn... love it! It looks like he has a true passion for kettle corn. I'm so proud.

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

Um, excuse me, why does Jackson look like he's grown 2 years in 8 months?! I've got to get my hands on him before all his baby is gone! Got to come see y'all soon!

Phillips Family said...

Cute pics!

This is completely random...but one of my dear friends from college just posted pictures of her family at Dewberry Farm on Facebook...and you are sitting right next to her on the hayride! Ha! (they were a couple with a little blonde hair boy). Small world!

Ang baylis said...

Your boy is getting so big and so cute I must add. I LOVE the picture of him trying to smile while eating the kettle corn!
Thanks for taking the time to post all of those pictures for your friends out in blog land!
Love,
Angie xoxo

Janice said...

Wow- a goat ramp! Looks like fun... I wanna go. :)

bethany said...

What cute pictures! Looks like you all had a splendid time.
I am being brave (or crazy) and am venturing out with 18 autistic preschoolers to such a place on Thursday (pray for us...18 autistic preschoolers away from the routine of school...not very east to accomplish!). It is called Resendiz Fruit Barn and we go every year....we are looking forward to it! I don't look forward to loading or unloading all those car seats though! I feel like Jon and Kate in their show "Jon and Kate plus Eight"!

Erica said...

We are SO going there for Brea's birthday...thanks for the suggestion!

JayCee said...

Awwwww....wish we lived in Houston! That beats our pumpkin patch to pieces.

Darlene R. said...

That does look like a fun place! Jackson is at such a fun age for those kinds of outings. He is getting so big!

Lizz @ Yes, and So is My Heart said...

Those are great pictures! Our pumpkin patch was fun, but it doesn't look like it was quite that much fun. Almost makes me wish I lived in Houston.

Sheryl said...

Sounds like you had a great time...great pictures too.

Janelle and Ella said...

You look SO good!!! I was needing the camera to be a little lower though so I can see that cute belly bump that is carrying that sweet baby GIRL! :-)
Looks like a VERY fun place. I love the rolling slide. I am imagining how much Jackson loved that.
Missing y'all like crazy!

RosyRose said...

The pictures in the hay are so adorable! They would be awesome in black and white with frames!
Isn't it such a blast to introduce him to new things? I love that part of mothering!

Farmer Dewberry said...

Thanks for your kind comments about our Farm. We do try to make it unique. Always love to hear that someone had a good time here at the Farm. Hope you make us a Family Tradition.

God bless you,

Kimberly and Grace said...

Oh my word he is so adorable! Those eyes!!! What a fun day!

Linda Vujnov said...

Great photos!
I didn't realize that Dew Hickey was an actual place. I thought it was the thing you say when you cannot figure out what the thing is you want..."Pass me that Dew Hickey please."
See how informative your blog is. :)

Beau, Melissa, and Brynne said...

Jackson is so big....and handsome! Wish I could see your tummy. Miss you!

Ashley said...

I just LOVE the pictures of Jackson and Curtis playing in the hay!!!

Nichele Lynn said...

Jackson is just too cute! The pic of Jackson and Hubs in the hay is priceless! Frame it.

MamaCass said...

That looks like such a fun place! We are going to try and pick out some pumpkins this week. I can't wait. And Jackson looks like such a big boy! They need to slow down on the growing don't you think !

Smith Family said...

Wow! Amanda... Jackson is getting so big and tall. Time is fleeting. He is such a handsome little boy.

katiegfromtennessee said...

I enjoyed these pics, Little Momma. It did look like a perfect day:) Jackson is a little ham, isn't he?:)

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Jackson is getting so big I can hardly stand it.

In fact, I can't. Tell him to stop growing THIS INSTANT.

Lora said...

Darlin' pictures of your men in the hay!

Bonny said...

Looks like a wonderful family day - what a great memory you made. Love you!

Kelli said...

How much fun! We are going with our MOPS group next week and I can't wait! :)

Amy T said...

Wow! Jackson is growing up so fast! I couldn't believe that was him walking behind Curtis going into the buiding. What a big boy!

tonya said...

Kohls.com HAD cute pajamas for little ones that say, "Who are you calling Turkey?". I can't find them online now, but they were in my local Kohl's store this week.

Thought Jackson might like them. :o)

If you need me to go to Kohl's just say the word...such a sacrifice!!

We went to Dewberry farm today. It was my sister, her three kids, oldest nephews girlfriend. My sisters brother in law and his wife their kids plus 3 friends. We had so much fun. My little niece, she is 2 1/2, had a blast. She loved the roller slide and the pillow. we did the pumkin stroll also, it was really neat. Thanks for sharing about this, it was because of you Amanda I really wanted to join the fun and wanted to go.
