I went to the nut farm




Wyatt's preschool had their field trip at the pumpkin patch today... the HOTTEST day of the year.  It was 105*  Not to worry though, it was a dry heat so it really only felt like it was 101*


There were oodles and oodles of pumpkins






This was the winner for Wyatt



This was the winner for mama



 
{It's not a real rat}
We escaped the heat for a bit and went into the candy/nut/gift shop before heading home. 

Once we got home we {as in I} were exhausted!  Completely worn out.  Feeling like I just ran a marathon and then delivered a baby.  Did you guys read about that girl?  This may have been my last trip to this farm until I get my health back because there was no running or pushing babies out and I was worked.  It was just a pumpkin patch but I still couldn't hang. We are planning on going to another one next week with Alexis and hoping for some fall like weather but then again, this is Southern California.

  6. Love the rat. A person with a sick sense of humor did that. :) I did read about the woman that ran a marathon and then delivered her baby. Cr.a.zy. Is there any hope for any significant healing.

  11. How fun! Nate's Butt Farm!! Did Anthony take you by our old house or to the caves?

    What a fun trip...sorry it wore you out, freaking sucks. You will get better soon, I know it!

    Sidenote: I was admiring the picture of you and Ant's and thought, 'wow, what a cute pic of them, they are a good looking couple...oh, too bad Karen had something stuck in her teeth...would have been perfect except that.'...then I realized it was just some dirt (or food...) on my LCD screen...that landed perfectly on your pearly whites! But I totally thought you posted a picture of you with something in your teeth..I was laughing. Apparently, I need to clean my computer ; )

Plus we live so far out in the woods no one stops by anymore. Stopping by from the blog hop and now following you thru GFC. I would love a follow back when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a great week!
