fun at the pumpkin farm!

We took Phebe on her first Pumpkin Farm excursion, last Friday. I'm only a week late!

We figured we'd missed any decent (weather) opportunity to visit the pumpkin farm this year... but alas, the weather man was saying it would be a balmy 25°C. And likely, the last warm day in October. Baba had the day off work and shhhh, don't tell anyone, we kept Lilah home from school! Believe me, she was still "learning" at the pumpkin farm... and having fun too. And Phebe is ALWAYS thrilled when her sister is around. Honestly, it is so sweet to see her face light up when she sees Lilah. It just melts my heart.

On the walk over to the pumpkin field, Baba had his two girls in a wagon running them down a little hill. They were shrieking with laughter. This Baba sure knows how to entertain his little girls.

I love my husband and our little family. Since bringing our little Phebe pumpkin home from China, you know I've always felt incredibly blessed, but now I can't even find the words to express how I'm feeling. It is a overwhelming joy, love, thankfulness, all mixed up into a very blessed Mama. And I know my husband feels the same, recently he said to me: "Can it really be this good?" I think he was pinching himself at the same time!

Phebe had a lot of fun, although to be fair, she wasn't so sure about playing in those bales of hay... she kept disgustedly looking at her hands and dusting them off! And saying "dity", which is a very posh way of saying dirty! She really enjoys big open spaces and exploring, so her day was a fun one.

We ended our day with a picnic and two sleeping girls!


  1. I have to say that I love the way Phebe's pants and skirts hang down off her waist!

    Still thinking I should move to Ottawa...

  2. I love to see a sleeping baby!!! Arent they just adorable, Jill?
