I kept telling JennaBeth to look at the babies and she would say, "baby goats" over and over.
Mr. or Mrs Peacock (not sure it this was a male or female) never would fan their feathers for us.
Mr. Llama just sat like a knot on a log! Cecily reminded me not to bother him to much or he would spit at us!
I think the donkey was sleeping while standing!
Bentley wasn't all that interested in seeing the animals. He was just ready to get on the playground! JennaBeth followed him and played just like she was as big as he was. She went up and down the slides without a second thought.
Cecily, Mike and I went over to the picnic area to wait on them to finish playing and we found this little caterpillar. I let him crawl on my arm and Cecily got grossed out. She's such a girl :) I never could convince her to let him crawl on her! JennaBeth wasn't scared and wanted to hold him, but I was afraid she would smush him.
As you can tell by his red little face, it was super hot!
JennaBeth wasn't too cooperative with picture taking on this particular day. She did stop in front of the tractor, because she saw her brother do it. She wants to do everything he does.
And of course little miss wasn't going to be left out of anything. She found the bin with all the mini pumpkins in it and went to hunting her very own pumpkin. She finally chose one and started calling it a ball the throwing it. Thank goodness we finally made it to the car without her pumpkin "ball" getting destroyed!
I won't even bother telling you how long it took Mike and I to get this picture! JennaBeth kept throwing her little pumpkin. She was convinced it was a ball. You can always count on Bentley to grin real big!!
We had to say bye to the Hay Family on the way out!
We were so close to Sarasota and Yoder's we just couldn't resist stopping in for an early supper. The Amish really know how to prepare delicious food. We only got two pieces of pie to share for dessert. They give you a piece as big as your head. Bentley and Mike shared a piece of fresh strawberry pie and Cecily and I shared the best coconut creme pie I have ever put in my mouth! JennaBeth had some of all of everything!!
When we got home, Cecily and Bentley, with JennaBeth trying to help, carved the biggest pumpkin.
Isn't Mr. Billy Bob McIlwain handsome, even with his chipped tooth :)
Before we left Hunsader Farms, we purchased some apples. They gave you a plastic bag and you could fill it up with whatever kinds of apples you wanted for just $6. So now we have tons of apples.
Anyone have any good recipes using apples? Please share. I've got to do something with all these apples. They make the house smell just like an apple orchard.
My favorite part of the day I believe was getting to come home with some yummy homemade apple butter. There is nothing like a hot biscuit smothered with apple butter!!
We had alot of fun on Monday at the farm. And those three pumpkins sure are cute sitting on the bar in our kitchen!
