Almost Wordless Wednesday….

Happy Hump Day! Hope that everyone is having a great week. We had a great extended weekend as the kiddos were off Monday for Columbus Day. We spend some quality time with friends and together as a family. The hubs was off on Sunday so we took the kids pumpkin picking out east near the Hamptons. We are fortunate enough to live within an hour of all of the great farms that are on the eastern tip of Long Island. It is so crazy…..it is like a whole different world out there.

Most of Long Island has neighborhoods where the homes are close together. So close that I hear Ethel behind me talking on the phone…lol.  But out there it is so different. The homes have acres of property and it is truly just serene. Along with that peacefulness comes REALLY, REALLY high priced homes and taxes that are as much as some people’s yearly salary!!  Thankfully we get to enjoy going out there this time of year for apple picking and pumpkin picking. Not sure we will be moving there anytime soon : )

Needless to day, here are some pictures from our latest trips to the apple and pumpkin farms!!

This is the closest Christopher will ever get to milking a cow!!

There were hayrides and tractor rides as well as wooden play structures for the kids to enjoy.

At the pumpkin farm, Christopher got to walk a goat!  He was so excited.

They even had potato sac races……

There were very few pumpkins left to pick….lol. We did manage to get 3 small ones, thankfully!

All in all, we had a great time. I love this time of year. I did, however, come to the conclusion that I will NOT be a farmer in my next life!

LOL - love that walking the goat pic!

We're going to head up to Muscoot Farm this weekend to get our pumpkins. I can't believe how fast this month is going by!!

Okay, that line about Ethel on the phone made me LOL. I can't wait to visit your part of NY one day! That photo of Christopher milking the wooden cow is hilarious! We may hit up our first pumpkin patch this weekend!

It was certainly a warm weekend for your activities! The boys seem like they have grown so much in just the short time we've been blog friends ~ time flies!

By the way...check out my post tomm, I've nominated you for a versatile blogger award as one of my faves!

Oh, and if you ever want to borrow the beauty school dropout dress, I'll mail it up (I'm not wearing it again anytime soon!)

Super fun!

That is one of the things I really love about where we live. We have access to all kinds of cool small towns and farms. And it's so much more fun in the fall for some reason.
