5 years, 11 months.
This past Saturday made the 3rd year Mommy and I have taken you to Walden Farm to pick out some pumpkins and to enjoy all the related festivities. Of course, it made the 1st time for your sister.
Though we dressed for fall weather, it actually felt more like summer. Had we known, we would have all worn shorts.
We started out by going on the hay ride. You always love to find all the hidden objects out in the field.
It was funny because just earlier that morning I was telling Mommy how I would like to take you to a “scary house” at some point. Fortunately, they had one there at Walden Farms.
For 5 Walden Bucks, you and I got to access the playground area which included a scary house that was appropriate for you. At your age, I would have been too afraid to even enter. Not you though- you went through it twice. You thought it was really cool.
You also got to go on the cool tube slide on the hill. Plus, you climbed the haystack mountain.
This also made the first time you rode the tractor train by yourself.
I love how our visit this year was different than the others- because now, you are old enough to do the big boy stuff.
Before this year, you liked to hang out at the toddler table, playing with the toy trucks and bulldozers in the sand.
But this time, you just enjoyed exploring the parts of Walden Farm that you never had before.
Meanwhile, your sister Holly had a much more relaxed experience; enough so that she was asleep for part of it.
We had a wonderful time as a family. Maybe next year your sister can join you in the train.
