E-Z Orchards

Today was the most beautiful fall day. We celebrated the wonderfulness with going to E-Z Orchards, and are officially in love with it. In case you haven't read any of my posts ever, I LOVE fall. Everything about it, and this place held many of my loves of fall all in one location.
Leia going for the petting zoo. Lily was more interested in the cage really. There was a baby calf, sheep, chickens and a scary goat...like I was scared of it.
Happy to be out of the car (HA! Silvie, that was an adventure)
Can you just imagine her as a farm girl?
Ethan loved the little kid tractors there, it was fun to watch the older kids play with them, next year Lils will join in on the fun rather than eat the diseased hay bails. All in all a fast, but good trip.I am excited to go back again and go on a tractor ride (Natalie, Tif??) We made it home with a dozen 'apple cider donuts' and I wont lie to you, I plan on finishing the last two off after I click on the 'publish post' button.

So I totally drove by there and thought of you today, Rach! I didn't know you were there. Mom was having a bum day so I ditched work while the girls were at daycare and went out to cheer her up. I had no clue they were more than a fruit stand. We'll so have to take Natalie and go.

If you keep going up that road to the next STOP sign and take a left (Howell Prairie rd) then there'll be another farm, Bauman Farms. That's our all time favorite one for the girls. We'll have to see if EZ Orchards can beat it! Bauman's is FREE...which totally rocks...

So I've totally been watching Little people big world (on TLC) and was wondering if you guys lived near those people, The Roloffs. This post made me think of it b/c they have a pumpkin farm too, and are in Oregon. Who knows if you went there you might get filmed and you guys would be mini celebrities. Just a funny thought!

Ohh! How fun. I love Halloween. It is by far my favorite holiday. BTW, Camden LOVES laptops. He gets so mad if we are using one and won't let him "fix" it. =) Lils is turning out to be so beautiful. Camden turns one next Friday (24). Can you believe it?! =(

I am totally in! I checked the weather and Friday looks promising as well as quite a few days next week. We'll definitely find a day and all go and I'm sure Clark will love it.

Jeff and Stacey said...

that looks so fun!

Tif said...

Hey, I think we'd be totally in for Friday, too! I don't think we have ANYTHING on my calendar! We should all totally go!

The kind that's just a nice easy tube of fabric, you just slip it over one shoulder, slip the kid on, and voila? If so...I can whip you up one in 20 minutes! Ok, maybe like 45. But yeah, I can make you one. I might even have some fabric that you'd like. Those ones are a little pickier for sizing-like you and Chad would wear two different sizes. There are "ring slings" that do the exact same thing but they're adjustable. I've not worn one, but if we have another baby I plan to play around with making one and using one because they're so much more adjustable. But I LOVE my pouch sling. I have one you could try. We're sort of similar size. OK, you're taller. And smaller. But you could try mine on and see if it works with Lilly. If we go to the farm on Friday I'll bring it! If it doesn't fit, I can measure you for one of your own (if it's even what you're looking for). If it fits I can just use those measurements.
