Off to what-used-to-be-called-Rainbow Farms...

...but isn't anymore and my sister's family still CALLS it Rainbow Farms and their cut-out face thingy even SAYS Rainbow Farms and I can't remember what the new name is anyway. So there.


This past Saturday, we headed out to Maryland's Eastern Shore for a day of pumpkin farming. This particular farm is an Easton tradition and now that my sister's youngest is 14, she enjoys carrying on the tradition with our three.

Megan and Violet explore the corn table.

A handsome bunch of corn and farmers and...a goat? (See? Rainbow Farms is painted on the barn!)

Amelie and Violet got a kick out of this!

They had this awesome bouncing pillow--something I've never seen before. But I can tell you, if we had one in our backyard, I wouldn't need to lose 30 pounds!

Amelie and I took two turns on the bouncing pillow. It was an incredible leg workout!

Violet and Amelie took a turn at driving the tractor too.

Linus got to know the pumpkins.

Our whole group: My sister, Karen, brother-in-law, Dan, and niece, Megan are in the center. Dan ALWAYS finds the BEST pumpkins.

Violet and Amelie even felt kind of brave and fed the cute baby goats with Megan.

Oh, and this baby goat was SO cute, too! Hey wait! That cutie is just a braces-free Megs!

Happy Autumn!

Wow...I'm really jealous. Council Famrs a.k.a. Rainbow Farms is one of my favorite places in the whole entire world. Even though Italy is absolutely amazing I do miss fall in Maryland. Aw. Love you guys :-)
