Good morning Ladies ! We are winding down towards the end of October and it has gone by so fast ! It is one my favorite months of the year with the weather cooling and the leaves changing color. It is also that nice period between summer and winter . The weather is kind of where it should be for Minnesota at this time of year with temps in the mid 30s at night and warming to the 50s during the day.
As I said last week we made the one hour drive from our house to Pinehaven farm for a lovely morning out . We left home soon after 8am and were there close soon after the opening time. We got to see the farm animals and it was nice that the kids got to feed the goats and baby calves. They had a few different breeds of cows and sheep you would not normally see. I grew up helping out on my grandparents farm so had an interest in all the animals along with the kids! The kids then went to the inflatable bouncy patch and had fun there. Then it was on to the giant slide . Our youngest was a little scared at first but soon was enjoying it! There was also a zip line and also a corn pit to play in. Our oldest son seen paintball and had to have a go at it! Then we got on the trolley and went out to the pumpkin field for the kids to pick theirs out . Our 14 year old daughter did not want to get one, is it a sign she is not our little kid anymore? We were then ready to leave after an enjoyable few hours. We stopped at a nearby restaurant before driving back home.
We had time to relax after getting home for a few hours . Then as it was our anniversary the 2 of us went out on a little date to a new restaurant about 10 miles from home. It was a lovely time and a great end to the day! On Sunday there was Church in the morning , the afternoon and evening was relaxing . The kids were back in school Monday after their mid term break . Church class resumed on Wednesday after a break.
Today we are going to an apple orchard to meet the extended family, The great Grandpa will join us also which is so nice to see him getting out and about.
