We had a great family outing this morning at the Pigeon Roost Farm. It was so much better than the pumpkin patch we went to last year. I figured I had better get out of the house while I still can & Corbin needed some fresh air.
There were so many children's activities for Corbin to do. It was a stroller-free day- we just let him run around & explore. They had these fun slides going down the hill that he will have to try out within the next couple of years, too.
The first thing that we encountered was all of the produce. Corbin went all through all of the pumpkin & gourd displays & we had to pry him away. We didn't want him to wear himself out before he got to the fun stuff!
I tried to get Jon to pose with him in one of these things, but was unsuccessful; I was game, though.
They had a lot of different animals on the farm. We saw turkeys, peacocks, goats, camels (!), bunnies, ponies, and many more.
This must be a free-range chicken
Here's Corbin going down one of their many slides for toddlers
We went on the hayride through the farm. We joked that maybe it would put me into labor. They have a recording that plays during the trip that teaches you about all of the farm's productivity. They grow squash, gourds, corn, indian corn & soybeans on the farm. They also kept bees there to pollinate the pumpkins.
Corbin was getting a little tired, as it was nearing noon by then.
Corbin did the Creepy TeePee Crawl all by himself! He was a little unsure, but it helped that the little boy who went right in front of him was very brave & led the way.
He tried, but the Straw Tunnel was a little too crowded to get through
Corbin played for a few minutes in the corn kernels, where they had a bunch of toddler toys set up. Mommy was thankful that she got to sit down on a bench to watch him.
It was a very fun morning. We stopped for lunch on the way home & Corbin even waited until we got home to fall asleep. We all decided that was a good idea & all took 2 1/2 hour naps. :)
