Hope you enjoyed this three day weekend!
It was a perfect Fall weekend here in Southern New England. We spent most of it in Boston playing and eating like tourist again. Showing the girls all the fun things our city has to offer is one of my favorite pastimes, and seeing some new things is always fun! We got to visit the new Edgar Allan Poe statue they put up, which was great. (IheartEAP)
But, today we spent it together having a little family fun at a local farm.
Our tradition around the Columbus Day weekend is to trek to a farm, and over the past 5 years plus we have visited Ingaldsby Farm in W. Boxford, MA. Ingaldsby is a quaint farm tucked away off of 133 that offers a huge variety of seasonal produce and baked goods. There is also a sweet little park for the kids to play on which includes a wooden train play set and two large tractor tires on top of a huge sand pit. Next to the park is a layout of a petting zoo. Their animals include peafowl, pigs, sheep, lambs, goats, bunnies and their resident turkey, “Georgie” who resides with their chickens.
In the Fall, they offer a corn maze, hay rides and PYO apples and pumpkins. Once you get out of your car you can smell the fresh cider donuts cooking in the air, and are immediately faced with all the colors of the pumpkins and gourds laid out for you. The farm is beautifully laid over rolling hills of apples, pumpkins, corn and so many other vegetables, and it all spills out over a colorful pond. It might be one of my favorite family friendly farms for this reason. That typical New England feel of being surrounded by hills and trees.
Here are a few snaps of our fun day. 🙂
Hope this weather streak continues cause I have some fun coming up and an outdoor wedding next weekend!! Pray for me guys! 🙂
