After our late night at the Zoo I did not have the energy for our day at Mt.Vernon per my plan ,but luckily The Sports & Learning Complex had a fall event going on.
Crafts, snacks, bouncy house, train rides and crafts welcomed us.
Unfortunately, a few of the promoted activities were not there like the petting zoo and live performers…..booo
My little family really enjoys the holidays!
Sharing all the fun family traditions with your little makes everything even more special!
Most pumpkin patches are not open during the week to families which is pretty inconvenient … So discovering Queen Anne Farm so close to home and convientely open weekday hours was a blessing!
We love farms in general, the fresh food , novelty items, live stock and overall experience *sigh* these truly are the best moments.
Farm time is one of the rare times my family gets to disconnect from technology and just engulf ourselves in nature. We make an effort to appreciate these times as often as we can. Liv loaded into the little red wagon they had available and gazed at the chickens and other farm animals present, squealing and imitating their sounds. The bulk of our time was spent finding the best pumpkins of course. And yes pumpkinS because baby girl needed a big pumpkin and a tiny one as well. I swear she touched every pumpkin on the field 🙂
When she was satisfied with her selections. She also picked a sunflower to take home! We stopped in the little shop area for the neccessities yummy cider and pumpkin decorating kits!
So silly! And allll mine 🙂
I usually like to decorate my pumpkins, not eat them…. However! This past weekend baby and I sampled the most wonderful pumpkin dip paired with some crunchy apples! So deliciously light and tasty. Since Liv’s taste buds are in agreement I will be sure to put this recipe in rotation this fall. The recipe details can be found here
