Fun at Holt Family Farms

On Friday after we picked the kids up from Preschool, Subo, Katherine and I took the kids to Holt Family Farms for an afternoon of fun.
Paul and Lee wanted to take this giant pumpkin home.
Hope was just having fun running free.

She was such a sweet little poser, while the boys were off playing hide and seek.
This was the best group picture I got. The kids were ready to get to the fun!
The boys were playing hide and seek, and they strangely disappeared every time I asked them for a picture.
more hiding...
Then it was time to take a hayride to the pumpkin patch. The pumpkins looked beautiful from where we were at the barn.
Our precious friends, the Butlers, were there too!
Paul and Lee LOVED the hayride. They sat at the front and watched the tractor the whole time. I think they could have ridden on there all day.
Then they were set free in the pumpkin patch to find their perfect pumpkins.
Lee found one right away.
He was SO proud of it!
Then, back at the barn, it was time to play on the hay. Guess who was first!

Sweet little daredevil! You can't tell in this picture, but she had climbed up a couple of bales of hay here. It was impressive.

These two loved playing on the hay. We had to drag them off to do other things.

There was a cool hay maze that the kids loved going through again and again.
Then it was on to the petting zoo. These goats were enjoying all the attention.

When Lee and Paul came back with food, the goats became very aggressive. It was a little scary, and I was glad when the food was gone.
The boys weren't scared at all.
Then Lee enjoyed chasing the chickens.
He wanted to go back to the hay one more time before leaving. I did manage to get a couple of cute pictures between all the jumping.

If we had these at our house, we would never get him inside. He had the best time.
Even with the cool temperatures and impending rain, we had a wonderful afternoon. If you get the chance to visit Holt Family Farms, you should go this week. The leaves are beautiful, and there are so much fun activities for the kids.
