Embrace the Camera (Oct 21)

This week's Embrace The Camera is brought to you by Southern Belle Farms Pumpkin Patch!

A couple of weekends ago we spent a lovely (seriously- the weather was PERFECT!) Saturday at Southern Belle Farms with our best friends the Mays and Cardozas. It was so much fun! I had seen pictures and heard about their trips from the past couple of years and have been looking forward to taking Silas long before he was born. :)

There are LOTS of pictures, as usual. :)

The first thing we did was head to the Pig Race. Those little piggies are fast! Silas thought it was funny because they squeal and oink the whole time they are running. :) Here he's waiting for the race to start with Daddy.

Go piggies go!

Next we headed over to pet the goats. We stayed here for awhile because all of the kids were enjoying themselves. They got to feed them and pet them. Silas tried to poke their eyes out with his fingers - all in love of course!

Time out from poking petting the goats to take a picture with Momma. :)

Feeding the goats some hay

At some point we made it over to the big slide. It's basically a HUGE pipe set in the side of a hill that they have turned into a slide. I took Silas for a ride and despite the weird look on his face in this picture, he loved it. We went FAST!

While all the other kiddos were getting their fill of the slide, we went to picks some cotton and pretend we were in Louisiana. :) I love cotton. It is one of those things of nature that I just think are so creative on God's part. I mean, first it's a plant with leaves, then flowers and leaves, and then cotton that we use for all kinds of wonderful things. So cool. I snagged some for my house.

Family pictures in which Silas refuses to smile or look at the camera. But at least he wasn't screaming!

This farm is so neat. They have stuff EVERYWHERE for kids to play with/on. These little tractors were a huge hit with our group.

So were these antique BIG tractors. :)

They have a big pumpkin patch and Silas liked this pumpkin.

A LOT!! :)

He learned to say "pumpkin" which just sounds like a two syllable word starting with "p" and now every time he sees a pumpkin (which are everywhere btdubs) he starts yelling about it.

This was the coolest thing ever. They have this gigantic bouncy pillow and it was a blast! Silas loved it and wanted to just take off on it but I wouldn't let him since there were so many big kids all around. I was afraid he would go flying and land in the pumpkin patch. So he sat or bounced with me and still had fun. :)
We had a fabulous day and made some great memories. I can't wait for next year!
