Linder Farms

Last weekend we had the pleasure of visiting Linder Farms.  It was quite cold but Kate did really well being out for an extended amount of time.  When we first arrived, we visited the petting zoo since Kate absolutely loves animals.  I think she was a little nervous because the animals were much bigger than anything she’s seen up close before.  There was a camel, an alpaca, two newborn alpacas (I thought they kind of looked like dinosaurs because their long necks weren’t hairy… very cute, though!), a pony, a calf, sheep, goats and a cat.  I don’t think the cat was actually a part of the petting zoo, but we stopped to pet it nonetheless.  : ) 

"Don't put me down, okay Mom?  I'm not too sure about those things!"

After we left the petting zoo, we set out to pick some pumpkins.  There were these crazy stickers that got onto everything so Kate didn’t actually get to get down and pick out her own.  Oh well, next year.  We found some good ones and my parents snapped a picture of our first family pumpkins.

One of our pumpkins is missing in this picture... not sure where it was.

With pumpkins in hand, we took a hay ride back to the farm (That sounds funny to me.  Took a hay ride?  Hopped on a hay ride?  Rode on a hay ride?  How do you say that?!).



After the hay ride, we drank some delicious hot chocolate and apple cider and ate corn dogs, hamburgers and some delicious roasted corn.  Seriously, it was amazing.  We had a great time and will look forward to going back next year!

    Sorry I forgot to mention it, you were out of town! You guys should go when Casey gets back, it was fun! Oh, and did you notice that my eyes are only open 4 millimeters in all of the pictures? What is that all about?! : )

    Do not leave your sister and precious niece out in the dark when it comes to fun things to do! A good sister would have waited until other sister was home! Right, Beth?
