8/365

January 8-
Our first night back all under one roof was not near as restful as we had hoped. (well for 3/4 of us anyway- Connor slept like a rock)

Penny has a fever and just generally doesn’t feel well, which translated to her not sleeping well.

I coveted the cuddles on her bedroom floor at 1am though. Smelling her sweet curls as she rubbed her tiny little hands on my fuzzy robe. Very thankful that I am her mama..

I came downstairs around 6:30am to a quiet house and took out the trash, made coffee, started laundry and opened the blinds to a dark street.

Just a few minutes later, Connor padded downstairs and asked for cereal. As he settled down to watch Paw Patrol this early morning, we both looked outside and admired this scene.

He said “Look, Mommy! The Northern Lights!”

So, here’s our photo of the “Arkansas Northern Lights” from our front porch…

{ 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.

Happy fall, y’all!

{ Headshots } – Ashley

Photographing friends is one of my favorite things ever, because I truly feel like I can capture their personalities in a photo.

These headshots were especially special because I met Ashley at Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged. She has SUCH a fun, giving, heart and personality for days.
