So. We failed completely on the apple picking and pumpkin patch visiting this year. I fear that makes me a bad blogger, but hey ho!
We did however manage a very damp and drizzly (with the odd downpour thrown in for good measure) visit to one of our local farms (where we could have picked apples and visited the pumpkins, but didn’t).
Connors Farm is about half an hour to the north of where we live, and is one of those really-must-get-around-to-visiting places. So, when my younger son was invited to a birthday party there, we thought we’d make an afternoon of it. The weather forecast at the point looked good…
And, having failed on the apple and pumpkin front, we did manage a corn maze.
The corn towered over my little girl (and me for that matter) and we had a few moments of hmm, we’re lost. And, the wee girl kept running off and then realising that she couldn’t see us. But, we did eventually find our way out again, much to everyone’s relief!
The little kids play area had it’s own maze, which was declared the worst maze ever. Because ‘it’s not a maze…’! So there.
And, of course, pumpkins. At least I managed to get a photo of some… that gets me some blogger points, doesn’t it?
I began these ‘Snapshots’ posts over the summer, when my days were too busy having fun with my kids to spend time writing about the fun we were having. They are a way for me to record the moments, but not feel obliged to write War and Peace. Capture the days as they happen. No SEO, no pinnable images, no stress. So, I’m going to continue to write them, and keep those moments from running away.
