Oh… to be a kid again. I have been thinking deeply about life and finding joy in every day. I know for us parents it is all work…. calendaring, appointments, meal preparations, house work, laundry, etc. The list could go on and on. But… I have been thinking on how I can still do those things but with more joy! I think the answer is to… let go. Let go of the fear and find faith.
Kids have so much faith. They have so much joy. I love being able to see this in their faces and hearts.
We got to spend the weekend at the Vertuccio farm as a family. Sometimes…. we ask ourselves why do we do these things?? The answer… so the kids can have fun and experience joy!
We had a lot of fun!
Vertuccio Farms was full of fun rides, spider webs, and corn mazes!!
We even got to see a turkey!
It was a pretty hot day. I wish it had cooled down. I love this time of year… but it sure is miserable when you are sweating in October. I was in pants and couldn’t get cool. We only lasted about 2 hours at the farm… but the kids loved it.
Jayd was too little to ride the carts… so her daddy took her for a ride. Luckily no one was around to shout at my husband. The carts were hard for them to push, but they still tried. After the carts… we went on a horse carriage ride. No pictures of the horses, just her!
Then we he hit up the famous #loveup corn maze! We started walking through the maze and then we finally let the girls loose to run around. I was hoping they would get lost… but it was a pretty easy corn maze!
The corn maze was one of my favorite parts!! I loved hearing the laughter of the girls… screaming and yelling where are you??!!
The last part of our trip was … the train.
Put your hands up for the ride!
Don’t you love my teenager with her phone… taking selfies and videos of her ride! At least she is smiling and having fun!
We had a lot of fun at the farm… bouncing, climbing, walking, feeding the animals, riding the carts, and running in the corn maze!
Nothing but pure joy!
