Gull Meadow Farms

This afternoon we took a beautiful scenic trip over to an apple orchard / pumpkin patch. It was a pretty monumental year--Cloe wanted to pose with every little face cut-out...brace yourself, I went a little *camera happy*!


Welcome to Gull Meadows Farm!
Look how tall we are! (Catch the tip-toes?)
Carson was willing to pose, but he didn't want to take his eyes off the T.R.A.C.T.O.R.!

McClain was also glued to the magnificent farm machine!


Oooo....a scary ghost!
Cody turned into our game show host...And the answer is...a pumpkin can weigh over 1,000 pounds! *ding*ding*ding*

This zip line had our kids ~hooked~. All three of them did it over and over and over. It was pretty cute! The guy running this said he had never seen such young kids with so much strength...that's all thanks to the 'roids! (Actually, it's all that training they've had jumping out of their crib, for pete's sake!)

McClain was so excited about this HUGE slide!

This jumping pillow was super entertaining! We figured out we could fit one of these in our backyard...it would BE our backyard but probably well worth it!

Ahh...the whole family of pumpkins!

Can you feel the love?
I think they knew it was almost time for...

Apple cider donuts with cider glaze!


Can you smell them? They were super fresh and so yummy!The most excitedly awaited *tractor ride* made perfect with the treat of a fresh cider donut!
Many ~mmmmm.....~s were heard the whole ride!

money well spent~memories well made

That looks so fun!!! And cold! I'm suprised the trees are still so green, but still looks like a lovely place.
Have fun playing again today!

Whoa, apple cider donuts with cider glaze?? You have got to be kidding me!! That sounds like the perfect mouthful of autumn I can think of.
