I feel so out of touch lately so I just had to pop in and update on LPB happenings. I’m just spinning my wheels to keep up because October is a SUPER busy month for our family. My husband, Toddler E, and Baby E share October birthdays and of course there are many fall festivities and fun things to plan for like preschool book character day but more on all those things later!
One of my October goals was to visit the pumpkin patch with the family, it’s a day of family fun on the farm! There are so many reasons I cherish our time at the fall festival!
We live in a populated suburb of Northern Virginia. Farm life is not the every day experience for our littles so it’s a chance to take a break from the hectic every day and spend some time together. Our toddler especially had a great time learning and enjoying farm life and I’m sure Baby E was thrilled to be along for the ride. I also could never fail to mention just how much energy Toddler E was able to burn which is always a WIN in my book!
We visited Cox Farms Fall Festival which was the perfect destination for our family day. The festival is an ideal set up for kids and adults to have a wonderful time. So MUCH to do from slides, to the corn maze, farm chores, an exciting hayride and so much more. We spent half a day there but it could easily be an entire day of fun! Here are a few pictures from our excitement at the fall festival!
Toddler E was really excited to play with the goats. Once he found the baby, it was really hard for him to say goodbye. But with a few hugs and maybe a few bribes about going on the hayride, we made it out without a meltdown. Baby E was beyond excited to leave since he really preferred the 4-legged animals from a distance!
I love fall festivals! There are SO many opportunities for natural photos with beautiful scenery! We took advantage of snagging some pictures of the boys enjoying their day on the farm.
Our visit to the fall festival concluded with munching on a few apples sitting on bales of hay. I’m just a bit obsessed with fall and pictures with fruit! Ahhh, simply life at it’s best! And of course picking a few pumpkins to take home was the final touch to our perfect day.
This is a fall tradition for our family and we will savor our apple cider, cider donuts and farm life thoughts until we visit again next year. Of course, I put our little farm boys in flannel for our special day at the fall festival. :)
Thanks for stopping by to share in our fall festival day! What fall traditions does your family have?
