I took the day off work this past Friday to take Wyatt up to Burt's Farm along with my mom, sister and her family. I haven't been to Burt's before, so this was my (and of course Wyatt's) first experience. Apparently it is VERY crowded on the weekends so we decided to go on a week day to avoid some of the crowds.
I've got to say that I really like this place. Some of their pumpkins are HUGE! (And I would have taken home every single one if I could - slightly obsessed with pumpkins this year). Mom, Wyatt and I got there a little bit before Kimmie and her clan so we started out taking pictures of W in the pumpkin patch. He was in awe at first and actually cooperated with us. Then he very quickly realized that it was more fun to run around than to smile for pictures!
Wyatt was so happy to see Ellie when she got there! They just ran up and hugged each other and immediately started "talking". We did get them to pose for a few pictures.
Then we put Garrett and Meme into the mix. Tough to get a 'good' picture of all 3 kids at once but I guess this one will do!
This was the best one we could get of W and I. At this point he wanted to run around and had no patience for standing in one place!
He did cooperate for the wheelbarrow ride. Unfortch, the sun did not cooperate and this picture is a little dark! Oh well ...
I think in this one he was trying to say "hey ... no pictures please!"
After we finished up pictures, we roamed around and looked at the smaller pumpkins. Wyatt is a bit confused and thinks the really small ones are balls, so he likes to pick them up and throw them around. The pumpkins at our house don't stand a chance of making it until Halloween ....
Ellie liked toting them around as well. I think this one was a bit too heavy for her!
For some reason, I had picked Ellie up and was carrying her for a minute when someone decided he was jealous ...
After we were finished with the pumpkins, we went on a hayride which Wyatt loved! He just relaxed and ate his snacks the whole time. I think he almost fell asleep.
Then it was lunch time, so we had a little picnic by the stream and afterward I taught Wyatt how to throw rocks in the water to make a big splash! I think he could have done this all day long. (Oh and somewhere in there we had to have a little wardrobe change! That red mulch got ALL OVER his white shirt. Thanks to Shout, Tide Stain Release, and Resolve along with 3 rounds in the washing machine it came out though!)
We had a fun day at Burt's and look forward to going again next year!
