A Day on the Farm

We recently spent the afternoon at Riverbend Farm. This is by far our favorite farm to visit in the fall. It is about 45 minutes from our house but well worth the drive.

They have a real pumpkin patch that you get to by riding on a big covered wagon and all these really cool slides made from old silos.

Hope you are having a happy fall. :)

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

We took a road trip to the Riverbanks Zoo last weekend. We were very excited to see the 4 month old lion cubs. When Adam wondered out loud where the mommy lion was Abby says, "I think she is out shopping." For the record I really don't shop that much.

and of course the mandatory ride on the merry-go-round (actually I think she rode it 4 times)

Notice our girl is wearing glasses. Isn't she beautiful.

Abby got a sucker from the eye doctor this week and she asked me what flavor it was. I told her butterscotch. She said, "Oh, I taste the butter and the scotch." :)
