Saturday we decided to take the kids to Timberline Farms for the corn maze and other fall fun. So my post today is mostly pictures of the fun we had together. Unfortunately the darling hubby was unable to join us (this is his weekend to work) so it was Nana, my Aunt, our little cousin, the girls and I.
We decided we would get there when the festival started 10:00am to get a jump on the crowds. The weather was beautiful and it hadn’t warmed up yet so we were in luck. The kids were excited because my Aunt and our cousin live in south Florida and we only see them every 6 weeks or so. The first thing we head towards is the corn maze! Unfortunately I was so busy pushing the stroller through the maze I didn’t have time for photos.
I did take a few outside of the maze though!
After we left the maze the kids wanted to ride the “Monster Truck” I was nominated to go on that ride (thank you very much Nana and Auntie for that!). I should have known I was in trouble when we had to buckle seatbelts! Off we went doing donuts and all sort of nonsense truck maneuvers…I tell you my butt was airborne a few times through this ride. But the point was the kids loved it and had a blast so I would do it again.
My oldest daughter has her thumb up because that was the signal the kids were to give the monster truck driver that they were ok and he could go faster.
We then found the pony rides!
If you ask me these are not ponies, they are very tall. I really think they are colts. It was funny trying to help my middle daughter climb into the saddle but once she got up there she was happy!
One of the final things we did was face painting. The artist was wonderful and the price couldn’t be better (well it could’ve been if it was free, but this was well worth the money)
Yes that is a jewel on my daughter’s face. The face painting only took moments and the price was 4 dollars with a dollar off coupon.
As you see my oldest picked a pretty pink unicorn with a heart jewel, so delicate!
A very serious Batman! You know he means business.
Right before we left we went on the hay ride, this was a low-key ride and everyone enjoyed the scenery. We actually had the luxury of having the whole hay ride to ourselves which gave us the chance to talk to one of young men working the hay ride. As we were talking we found out our driver was only 13 years old (he looked so much older) his driving was excellent.
It was really a beautiful day, I had a great time with wonderful people.
