Farm Time Fun!

It's hard to believe this was our third time to visit Gentry's Farm as a family. Aiden was only 3 months old on our first visit and it seems like just yesterday we were making him pose with us and the pumpkins in the patch. Time does fly and bring with it multitudes of change, all for which I am grateful. The awesome thing about Aiden's MDO program is it is one of two "schools" in the area that gets to use the farm for a solo visit during the October season, allowing for lots of time to enjoy the activities without fighting the crowds there during the days the farm is open to the public. It makes for a much nicer time for all. Plus, it's cute to see them acknowledging their friends and teachers in a non-school environment. Aiden was in heaven with all the pumpkins and dirt. His cup of tea for sure. Teagan wasn't quite sure what to think, but they both did amazing for me as a solo mom running this trip!

We rode the tractor hay ride and saw lots of cows, even one that was one day old! There was a rainbow in the sky right as we rode, which was fun for Aiden to pick out. He played in the corn maze and troughs of grain with all the toys. We adventured through the teepees and farm houses. Aiden loved the big wooden play set they had with the "FAST" slide and all the animals. He had a nice conversation with the roosters and goats. My two precious loves were the hit amongst all the teachers...which is to be expected. They are pretty awesome if you ask me!

What a fun time and what fun it will be next year when Teagan is 18 months and Aiden is 3! Wow. As much as I can't wait, I certainly can. Time flies too quickly these days.
