Big Day!!

For the first time ever, I was able to put two little pigtails in Sandy's hair! Oh, how I have waited for this day!

Sandy was excited, too! She has a friend named Ava that always has two pigtails in her hair and I told her we'd do it "just like Ava."

By the time she had pulled them out about ten times and brought me new elastics saying, "just like Ava" to ask me to put them back in, she looked more like Cindy Lou Who.

We went to Farnsworth Farms to pick apples and Sandy is eating her apple in the photo above. We were too late in the season for apple picking, but we did find two tiny little apples.

They had a fun play area so we stayed and played. My friend Laurel and her daughter Elise came, and we were the only ones there.

They had tons of Snoopy props - a piano, Snoopy's doghouse, a mailbox, and of course, Lucy's psychiatric help stand:
There were several hay bales and pumpkins stacked to make a fun photo opportunity:
But Abby was the only one that would cooperate, the other two girls were busy playing on the playground.

There was a metal plane the girls had fun sitting in.

And swings! Abby's first time in a swing:

There was a small corn maze:

This week Farnsworth Farms has their Great Pumpkin Festival every night from 3 to 9 p.m. It's free admission and they show Charlie Brown's The Great Pumpkin at dusk. They also sell food and tickets to carnival games. I don't know if we'll make it back this year, but I definitely want to go next year!

After we played, we were hungry, so we stopped at the mall to grab a bite to eat. Abby caught a nap in the stroller:

We took a ride on the carousel. I don't believe I've ever been to South Towne Mall before, they have a carousel right in the food court!

And, we took a ride on the train.

After all of that, I thought Sandy would sleep well! She fell asleep in the car, transferred well, and then woke up 20 minutes later. I guess it was too much excitement!

Abby was 5 months old this past Saturday. Today we decided to see how she likes rice cereal.
She loved it almost as much as Sandy loved feeding her.

That farm looks really fun! Maybe we'll have to take a trip down there. Does it get really crowded during the Halloween festival? We went yesterday to Little Haunts at This is the Place and it was a mad house!! I'm always looking for places a little more under the radar. Thanks for the info! Love the pigtails--especially the wonky ones. :)
