2 years, 11 months.
This is a picture of you on your very first hayride, at least that I’m aware of.
(You were obviously happy about it.)
The way I see it, going on a hayride is one of the most American things you can do in Autumn.
It starts getting too cold to enjoy being outside in October, so you show up to a farm (more marketably called a “pumpkin patch”) where enough other people want to have fun, despite it being too cold to be outside for an hour and a half compared to if they were simply in their own yard.
How it seems to go for most new experiences in your life, like the train ride at the zoo last weekend, you typically are quiet as you process what’s going on- to figure out whether or not you like it.
Typically, it’s not until at least the next day that you refer to the experience as a positive event.
But with the hayride, it was barely finished before you announced to Mommy and me, “I liked the hayride.”
After all, we got pulled by a tractor! That’s not something we get to do everyday.
Soon after, we made our way to the play area, where you had no trouble finding a toy tractor to reenact our adventure.
I was uncertain how you’d react to the Halloween decorations that were placed all along the ride, but you actually thought they were pretty cool- like the giant spider made out of hay.
So what are our plans for next weekend?
You guessed it. We’re headed back to the pumpkin patch to go on the hayride again.
I’m becoming more aware of the fact that I really get to have more fun with you these days. I’m especially looking forward to the holidays coming up for the rest of the year.
Now you are really starting to remember the activities and adventures we do together as a family.
That’s not to say you’re ready for Disney World, but I’d say you’re definitely approved for that 2nd visit to the pumpkin patch next weekend.
