My mama friends and I took the kiddos to Three Cedars Farm yesterday. It was an absolutely beautiful morning to go, and everyone must have had the same idea because it was crowded! Also, it was basically just the girls and I on our own because all the kiddos scattered in different directions so we mamas didn’t even really get to socialize. What’s the point then, right?! Jk . . we did it for the children.
Miss Roses was bundled up and ready for her first trip to the farm. I realized I didn’t have a jacket for Em, so I crammed her into this North Face fleece of Lucy’s that I loved. It’s a 6-12 month jacket . . . over her 18 month outfit! ha!
Lucy enjoyed these little tractors, but had no interest in riding hers around the track. She just wanted to sit on it and spin the pedals.
Lucy said the favorite part of her day was seeing the animals . . . especially the goats.
They have a huge, fake cow set up in a barn for the kiddos to “milk.” Lucy got quite a few drops of water out!
She would not stand next to the growth chart! I really wanted to see how tall she was. I could have bribed her with a donut, but I really wanted to save that to make her smile for a pic with Emily and me. #pickyourbattles #andyourphotos
Lucy played on this long wooden train for awhile. When I told her she was in the “Moose Caboose,” she thought it was the funniest thing ever!
Relaxing on the cow bench. Check out part of the farm in the background. It was beautifully decorated for fall.
Taking a donut break before we rode the train. We split a cinnamon sugar donut, and it was delicious!
I was pretty proud of myself for taking both girls on the train by myself. The other mamas didn’t go, so I had to try my best to get a good picture.
I finally asked a lady in the car in front of us to snap a quick pic. Lucy was so happy that we got the red car.
How sweet is my Emily Roses?? Those teeth!
After the train ride, we snapped our family photo and then loaded up to head home for lunch, nap/rest time, and a haircut for me. yahoo!
What a great, fall morning! Both girls did so well. If I had another person with me, I would have attempted the hay ride and pumpkin patch . . . maybe next year. This farm is where we go to see Santa at Christmas. We’ll be back there before we know it!
Oh, and just for fun . . . here’s Lucy wearing the jacket at 5 months and Emmy at 6.5 months. It was so short on Ems that it barely covered her belly button!
