Has it really?


Oh dear. 

Has it really been two weeks since my last blog?  

I just love this time of year so much that I am constantly outside taking it all in with the little dude… or enjoying watching the leaves fall (or getting locked out of the house with C while blowing leaves off the driveway- yep totally happened).  

But I’m here, and fall family photos are in full effect. I just love this time of year.  

 Did I say that already? 

Here’s a bit of what we have been up to. (via my phone, because it’s what I have with me 100% of the time) 

Dress up in momma’s glasses (also notice that in every picture that follows, Lightening McQueen is ever present!)

Colors changing slowly in our front yard… this was before those big ole trees dumped 5 tons of leaves on our house, porch, driveway, and neighbor’s house, porch and driveway. (hah!)IMG_0008





When he ate the kitty cat’s tail he said “Oh No!!!” “Meow!”

{ Funday Monday} – Farmland Adventures

Arkansas is truly beautiful.

The fall here is spectacular, and many local places know exactly how to capture and showcase the beauty of this little piece in our state.



Farmland Adventures in Springdale is at the end of a windy, country road just outside Springdale. As one of the fellow riders on the hayride said as we rode into the pasture to feed the cows, “you feel like your hours outside of the city, but in reality the grocery store is just around the corner.” Truer words I haven’t heard! We live in a pretty cool place where just a short drive leads you on the most magical adventures.


Connor loved the animals even more this year, and spent 99% of his time pining over, riding on, and patting the sweet ponies. His favorite pony was “Best Pony”, who he rode no less than 10 times. (not exaggerating here folks.. kid loved the ponies)



He also enjoyed the tractor ride to feed the cows tortillas in the pasture. I remember last year, a flock of chickens trailed after us into the pasture, but this year the silly cows did the trick. They loved brushing up right next to the wagon, and sticking out their long tongues toward our hands. What fun Connor had with them. He kept saying “mooooooooooo” (especially when cows would moo in return, that really got him going..!)




We were going to explore the corn maze, but after the 10th pony ride, C was shivering, and my fingers were numb so we headed to the van. Not before grabbing a super reasonably priced snack. 



With admission for 2-and-under kids free, and prices for adults being pretty reasonable (think price of a movie for hours of entertainment), we may have to go a couple more times before their season is finished.
