I have officially
accepted invited autumn into my life. The cooler crisp air that we are experiencing here in NoVA, has gradually removed the love of summer from my mind. [except for this week – it’s in the high 70’s]
This past weekend, my sweet friend Wendy [Wild Wild West Wendy] and two of her children traveled with Apple and I to Temple Hall Farms. I can honestly say, this was the best corn maze and down – on – the – farm fun I have had in years! And maybe it’s because I haven’t been to a corn maze in a few years … but this farm was awesome. Except for the roaming peacocks.
Apple and her friend Yoshie were having a blast. There were tractor rides, apple barrel hay rides through corn fields, games, food and everyone’s all time favorite – hot apple cider with a dash of mulling spice! Apple and Yoshie participated in a “chase the pigs” race. Actually the kiddo’s were on the inside of the fence wall as the piglet’s were running around on the opposite side of the fence. Nevertheless, these two young city slickers had a great time
chasing encouraging the little oinkers to run. At the end of the race, they received a souvenir pink piglet key chain. The kids did, not the pigs.
Apple & Yoshie
This was hysterical watching them sit down on this humungous Adirondack chair!
I just love these people!!
Miss C, Wendy’s oldest is a darlin’.

Not sure which vine Apple is growing on – but my girl has grown!
How cute is this?!
Yoshie driving the daisies…..
I wanted this little guy…seriously some cuteness overload!
Wait….I’ll take them both! [except that chicken]

Autumn, I’m beginning to love you.
