It was VERY BUSY! It had been raining on and off all day and it was kind of chilly, so we did not expect that many people to be there, but they were. The farm was also a lot bigger than we realized, so that was good.
First thing we got on the tractor ride and rode out to the pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins.
Magnus chose one and gave some other ones a sit.
The farm also had the softest sheep, cows, and donkeys that ever lived. They are also well fed.
Magnus liked touching the cow’s wet nose.
There was also a corn (sand)box. Magnus and Dana liked filling the toy trucks with corn and then dumping them out. Included in the entry price is a chance to use the pumpkin slingshot. It was tricky to navigate in the mud, but it was fun anyway.
That night was our ward’s harvest party. I was a princess, Magnus was a frog, and Dana was a log (for the frog to sit on!)
The kids got a chance to trick or treat and decorate pumpkins. Magnus loved coloring his pumpkin and putting stickers on it. It is a work of art!
Under Magnus’s frog costume we had put on skeleton pajamas as a back-up. When Magnus wanted his frog costume off, I thought it looked a little funny to see a skeleton under the frog suit.
Happy Fall! And Happy Halloween to everyone!
