To Explore / Peach Tree Farms


     Hi there! Just wanted to share a few photos from our visit to the pumpkin patch! Ironically, we didn't get any photos with the pumpkins - we were too busy enjoying all of the other activities that Peach Tree Farms offers!


      They have sunflower patches all over the farm, and this was as close as I could get, as the bees were thoroughly covering the flowers. They also had a new feature this year: a "corn crib" for kids to play in! It's a giant crib filled with dried corn, like a sandbox or ball pit but with corn. It was Bailey's favorite part, as you can probably tell! 


      More pretty flowers! The ones on the left were swarmed with butterflies, so much so that I couldn't help but think they plant them specifically for the butterflies! 


      Brett's going to kill me for this picture, but Bailey looks so glorious with the sunlight shining on her! It looks like she's on a mission, which she probably was (she adamantly insisted on getting popcorn and pumpkins after this)! And yes, she's covered in dirt. Apparently the children's corn maze was a little muddy and poor girl took a tumble inside while trying to run around! 

      Thanks for reading, and have a fun Thursday! We will be moving all weekend to a new house, so it may be a little quiet in this space next week. However, regularly scheduled content will follow the week after, so be on the look out for more fall goodness!

For an Adventure / To the Farm!


      Good morning! Today, I wanted to share some photos that both Kristen and I took from our adventure at Peach Tree Farms. Bailey just loved it, as most kids there did. From the animals to the random teepee, there were smiling faces everywhere! Check out our snaps below! 

     We beelined for the teepee as soon as we saw it. I think it was Baileys first time seeing one, so she was pretty taken aback. I plan to put a small play one in her room as a potty training reward once she gets there! 

      She really loved the goats and animals on the farm. I know it's sheep that go "bahhh", but every time Bailey sees a goat, she brays at it.

      I didn't get close enough to feed them, because of the smell, but her daddy loved showing her how they'll eat out of your hand! 

      There were little cabins in every pen, and they were just so cute. I wish I had an excuse to have one! 

     The pumpkin patches were also a hit! All I could think of was Charlie Brown, but Bailey was clearly only interested in sitting on them. 

     Sometimes I forget how similar Bailey and I are in skin tone and hair. It's not until I see pictures like these, where our coloring matches up exactly, that I can see it.

      Like I said, she really liked sitting on the pumpkins, even the ones that were so small they just rolled away underneath her!  

     Thanks for reading, and have a fun Friday! TGIF!! 

For an Adventure


     Hi there! A few weeks ago, Brett and I took Bailey to Mizzou's South Research Farm for a little fall festival they were hosting. It was a perfectly overcast and cool day, and Bailey loved running around looking at cows, sunflower fields, fire trucks (random, I know), and a huge bubble machine. They had a wine tasting for the adults, courtesy of our local vineyards, and corn mazes galore. Bailey took her first hayride up to a barn to see more animals, and she definitely was curious as to what the tractors were. See below for more pics!

     At one point, Bailey just plopped down in a pile of gravel, refusing to walk any further for a moment. I took the opportunity to snap a picture of our shoes, since we were both wearing black boots and she wasn't moving her legs for once.

     Columbia is surrounded by a few vineyards, and they brought out their wine for a small tasting at the farm. I tried a new red from Les Bourgeois and it was quite tasty!

      Like I said, Bailey really enjoyed getting to run in open fields. We just walked along behind her, making sure she didn't run into anyone. She definitely tumbled a couple of times, but that never really phases her.

     They had some local food trucks there as well. We had some delicious pulled pork sandwiches and they hit the spot after running around all afternoon.

     Thanks for reading, and have a great Monday!
