Happy Fall, Y’all!

15th October 2005

We had a great pumpkin hunt today.

Kristine, Analise, and I joined up with my parents on a

drive out into the Alabama countryside to find Baker

Farm. They provide quite the pumpkin patch experience!

The first fun stop was the Cotton Bounce, where Analise

got in a truckbed filled with cotton, fresh out of the

fields. She enjoyed it, but probably more due to all

the kids bouncing around her.

Then we visited the pony, though Analise

was too young for a ride. She was excited to sit for a

bit and pose for a picture! The pony looked just like

the rocking horse in her room, same color, same pattern.

We spent some time checking out the farm

animals – turkeys, ducks and ducklings, chicks and

chickens, bunnies, goats and calves. It was hard to

catch Analise smiles today, but we got a quick one while

she was pumpkin sliding!

The hay bale maze was very fun, and we

just barely made it through:) Good thing, since were

weren’t prepared to camp in the fields! Then Analise

found the kid-sized tractors, and she couldn’t get

enough of them. Another highlight of the farm was the

large cotton fields, which were ripe with blossomed

cotton bolls.

Then we met our friends Steven and

Medley for a hayride to the pumpkin patch. There were

plenty of “perfect” pumpkins, but we found the best:)

Now we’re ready for a carving adventure in 2 weeks.

We capped off the evening with a

campfire, freshly roasted hot dogs and s’mores. All in

all, it was a great way to celebrate fall!

    You two seem to have a knack for getting lost in mazes. I seem to remember a maze at DeSoto Caverns….It was fun watching over Analise as Brian went to rescue Kristine, and managed to get lost in the process…You’ll have to work on your maze skills before I come down again. I’ll try and school you another time somewhere. Love you all

    Love all the new pictures!!! There is a three mile corn labarynth we may check out near madison….we’ll let you know if we fare any better. Luckily Hal is just tall enough to look over the top if we get really stuck. Love you!

    I’m glad to see you’re mixing up some of the pictures with grown-ups! Of course Analise is way too cute but it’s fun to see your faces, too!
