Yesterday we decided to make a trip to the pumpkin patch with Miss Piper. We are blessed to have several huge fruit farms in the foothills of Mt. Spokane and they are only about 20 minutes from our house in Greenbluff. I buy my apples from Hidden Acres farm most years and make applesauce and pie filling. Yum! We first went to a big farm that is very popular. The first thing we noticed were the outrageous prices for EVERYTHING! The petting zoo was $4.00 for Piper and I. The only animals were a few sheep. Very disappointing. We overheard others saying the same thing. Everything was really expensive so off we went to the car and we drove to Siemers Farm. Alll of the photos below were taken there. Papa paid a couple of dollars to ride the train but Piper was free. The same for the petting zoo. Mandy paid $2 and Piper was free and there were LOTS and LOTS of animals.
Here comes the train with it's precious cargo.
It's Piper and Papa!
They had a grand time seeing the orchards and corn fields.
There were even camels named Dolly!
Piper loved the camel and kept going back there.
Posing with Dolly.
There's a fairy castle.
And live music that Piper loved dancing to with Grandma. Wow! Look at that gray windblown hair. On second thought, don't look at it! :-)
She was supervising Grandpa mowing the yard this afternoon.
I've finished the two baby blankets for the twins.
Now I've started the first hat for the sweater/hat/sockie sets.
We're enjoying unseasonably warm weather the past few days. Tomorrow is supposed to be 80 degrees! Very nice for October in Spokane. It looks as though Mandy and Brad's home in the D.C. area will be done by the end of October. I really don't know what Papa and I will do once they leave. The house will be so quiet. That little girl is a bundle of energy and I love it. She changes so much every day and I'm so glad we get to see it all right now. She adores her "Papa" and wakes up in the morning calling for him.
Okay my friends. I'm off to bed soon. Two year olds get up pretty early in the morning!
