Fall Fun!

B and G both fed the goats.

The corn maze occasionally had areas with large
(fake) animals in it.

Playing in the Haystacks

Both kids got a chance to milk a cow (G was scared
and I had to help her)

B stepping through the jaws of a great dinosaur (on the
way up to a very cool dino slide).

We went to Cox Farms about a week ago (I'm slow uploading pics). The kids had a terrific time. They had a corn maze, all kinds of cool slides, animals - goats, pigs, etc., yummy food (always the best part), live music, and lots of pumpkins! So glad we got to go do this with them. It (almost) let me forget that the closest place to go apple picking is 2 1/2 hours away. :( This is the first year I haven't taken them. B even asked when we were going to NY to go apple picking (we often visit my parents in the fall - :( but not this year). We had a terrific time and we did make homemade applesauce this week so not all is lost! :) Unfortunately the applesauce is gone so perhaps we have to make more...


  1. so fun! i LOVE cox farm! :) and, girl, apple picking is NOT 2 and 1/2 hours away! there are several places about 40 minutes west of centreville off of 66 (try stribling orchard -- my friend owns that one and it's great!) and a couple in montgomery county in MD. so, not exactly close to you, but DEFINITELY closer than 2.5 hours!

  2. Grace - thanks so much! I've been looking but not finding much and I've been really disappointed.

  3. Looks like lots of fun! We have an area pretty close to us called Apple Hill with lots of apple farms and wineries. We're going to try and make it up there this year with Wesley. Fresh, hot apple doughnuts. Mmmmmm. :)
