adventures : bengston's farm
















Before we all got sick, we got the chance to head out to Bengston's farm out in the suburbs of the city for pumpkins, caramel apples, hay-rack rides, haunted houses, and a chance to feed some furry friends.

While we still have so many great memories from all of Sofia's very first holidays last year, the second time around you can tell how much more aware she is of her surroundings and how she understands what's happening.  The joy is real, the experiences are beginning to form memories, and oh, how funny it is to hear her call every animal she sees a "puppy".  (We're kindly trying to introduce cow, sheep, horsey, and others into the mix!)

I really love the fall, I've been getting so excited-- maybe overly so-- about the upcoming winter time and being able to spend more time with the family I haven't seen in a while.  My grandmother can cook an amazing turkey, and I'm already gearing up for sweet potatoes and green beans and everything that comes with this time of year.  I may have already put on Christmas music while cleaning the house, too... but we'll just forget I said that until November at least ;-)
