Ringing in the fall season with a little pumpkin patch fun

A few weeks ago, I snatched up a Living Social deal for Reilly's Farm (50% off admission to the farm!)  The catch was that it was only good for 2 weekends, the last weekend in September or the first weekend in October.  We made plans to go last Sunday, but woke up that morning to a steady drizzle and dark clouds.  Boo.  We figured we would wait until after nap time to see if it cleared and head out then....but, around 11am, the sun came out full force! We hurried up, fed the kids and took off before the weather could turn again.

Liam fell asleep in the car on the way there, so we tried to take him in the carrier for a bit...that lasted about 10 minutes and then he was ready to go!

Waiting on the hayride:

I'm so glad we decided to go then because it was so uncrowded!  I'm sure the morning rain scared some people away, which worked out well for us.  It was clear during our hayride and time in the pumpkin patch, then started raining once we got to the activities portion of the farm, which was ok since we could just duck into the different activities (which were all covered).  That round of rain passed after 15 minutes or so. 

what are we supposed to be doing with these things?
seriously, dad?

They had some cute activities for the kids...the only one that didn't go over well with Jake was the "boo barn".  Even though Brian went through it with him, he did not care for the strobe lights.  Or spooky music.  Or the dark parts.  Yeah, basically he hated the whole thing.

There was a marshmallow roast, and I think that was the favorite thing of the day for both kids!

What do you mean you're cutting me off at 4 marshmallows??

Happy fall!!!
