It was cool, clear and blue this morning and we decided that the best way to spend this gorgeous fall day was to visit Dewberry Farm. This place is amazing. If you're within driving distance and you have kids, you cannot miss it. One day I want to have a farm and recreate all of this cool stuff for my grandkids. I would totally be their favorite.
We left early to get there right when it opened. We had to wait in line for about 10 minutes for our tickets, but then we had an hour before the big crowds arrived.
We went straight to the hay barn, which was our favorite part last year.
This year they had added swings, which looked really fun. Jackson was a little iffy about those and the hay wasn't loosened up yet, so we moved on.
Jackson loved the Fort and the super fast slide. There were only a handful of kids on it.
Later it looked like this.
The roller slide thing.
I don't know what to call this. It was a pony walker crossed with a swing.
This was the kiddie jumper/pillow. That's our child in the red socks that have nothing to do with his blue outfit.
One look at his face and we decided he's getting a trampoline for Christmas. He loves bouncing.
This was obviously Jackson's favorite thing.
Then he saw this.
And it became his new favorite.
Have you not always wanted to try this?
Annabeth could not be bothered to pose.
Or to smile.
It was just too bright. I'll try again with some other pumpkins on an uglier day.
Sis was not happy about her bow today. She wore it for 30 seconds at a time.
I always knew he was a turkey. Or is that a rooster?
This goat was enjoying a nice little nap in the sun.
Jackson and Curtis doing the rubber duck races.
My sweet little baby goat really needed a nap but wouldn't give in.
So we did. We decided to leave before Annabeth lost what was left of her cool.
Now she smiles...
She sure was cute though.
We bought a huge cup of sweet tea from a vendor on the side of the road and headed back to the city. That's when we heard that Dewberry Farm had been on GMA on Friday and they were expecting 10,000 visitors today. Two words: whoa Nelly.
Farmer Dewberry, thanks for another great visit! We had a lot of fun and we'll be back next year!
