Our first "Fall" outing

Although the highs are still in the upper 80s, we are ready for all things fall.  I know those cooler temperatures are coming soon and I cannot wait!  Today we drove about an hour to Jackson's Orchards and it was definitely worth the drive.  There were tons of things for the kids to play on plus a petting zoo, hayrides through the orchards, a pumpkin patch, a corn maze and lots more.  My mom was in town so she got to come with us and we all had a great time!

We started with some ice cream and amazing apple pies

Will must have gone down this slide close to 1,000 times

He even convinced Josh to go down with him one time

We went to the petting zoo and attempted to make the kids feed the animals

There was absolutely no way Isabel was going to hold a small cup up to an animal's mouth.  This is as close of an encounter as Isabel likes with animals.

This picture makes me laugh so hard every time I see it. Will wanted to hold a rabbit so badly...until the lady put one in his lap. He reacted like it was some terrifying beast instead of a sweet, fluffy bunny rabbit.  Josh and I could not stop laughing!

They had enough of the animals and decided climbing tires would be fun

Finally we decided to take a hay ride through the apple orchard to the pumpkin patch and corn maze

 Isabel was very proud of the sand masterpiece she made.

Luckily we found our way out of the corn maze pretty quickly this year!

You gotta pose with a couple of scarecrows right?
