A Gorgeous Autumn Day
I actually wrote the following post yesterday, but didn't get the photos downloaded until tonight.

What a gorgeous day we had today. The sky was blue, the air was crisp, and we were out enjoying the day.

We met up with our friends, the Fisher family, and headed out to a local farm. The farm was set up with corn mazes, hay rides, pony rides, pedal cars, a small train, and pumpkins. The front part of the barn had several photo areas set up, that we didn't use, stacks of hay set up like bleacher seating on one side, The other just had a wall of hay bales, pumpkins, and stuff, including an old sled. The back of the barn had a couple of ponies in stalls and cages of chickens, roosters, and bunnies. There were also some loose chickens and a kitten. There was a children's playground set up, and one lady who was walking two St. Bernard dogs around. They were therapy dogs so were wonderful around the children. As used to big dogs as Sera is, I was surprised that she was not happy when the St. Bernard came over to her. On the other hand, when the animal's head is bigger than your body, it's a little off-putting. She loved all the other animals though. She was running around having a good ole time. This year we mainly observed all the fun. I bet next year she participates more. She was fascinated when Kyra and Sean rode the pony ride and claimed that she wanted to go on the pony. She is too small to ride it, but the young girl walking the pony let us put Sera on the saddle for a minute. She practically sommersaulted trying to get back into my arms. She prefers the ponies from the safe haven of mommy or daddy's arms.

There were also some photo op areas set up outside the bard. They were wooden false-fronts with cut outs for faces and one with a measuring stick. Sera wasn't into the one with the faces, but loved the one with the measuring stick. It had been painted with an anthropomorhic ear of corn and pumpkin. Jim and I really liked the snack wagon set up with hot caramel cider. Yummy!

It was a beautiful day, and we'll definitely make this an annual event.

What fabulous photos. I just love to see those smiles. Ahhh...Autumn is my favorite by far!

Sounds like a great trip! We ventured out to an apple orchard/pumpkin patch this weekend. Such fun!

Great pics! Of course I'm partial to the ones of Sera. It sounds like you day was so much fun. Too bad we don't have true pumpkin patches here in FL.
