Honey Pot Hill

Today, we took a trip to Honey Pot Hill Orchard. Our friends, Jaime and Connor, met us there. We had chosen this orchard because it was within reasonable distance from each of us, and we wanted to get the kids together again. We went to a pumpkin patch last year, too, and had a lot of fun. This year was even better because the kids can run around and explore on their own. She, of course, spent half of her time running around like a crazy person. She ran from animal to animal, announcing the name of each one. "It's a pig! Oink! It's a goat! Baaa! It's a bunny! Hi Bunny!" Dave and I took turns taking pictures and chasing her all over the place.

Mairead had a blast. She got to drive a tractor...


See a bunny...


Eat apple cider donuts and drink apple cider with Connor...


See a scarecrow (when she says it, it's more like 'care-coh' but it's really cute)...


And then there was the best part- there are hundreds of pumpkins around and you can just re-arrange them all you want! She spend a good twenty minutes picking up pumpkins and moving them to more appropriate spots. The farm staff members kept bringing out more pumpkins and putting them in rows. One of the men realized what she was doing, so he just kept putting out small piles and letting her put them in rows herself. It was so funny to watch. I guess she is her mother's daughter!






These pumpkins were the perfect size for a two year old!

There are more pictures in the slideshow to the right. It was such a beautiful day- perfect for being outside in New England. Next year, we'll bring the boys. Then we will really be busy chasing kids!
