Fall Festival Fun....

Ryan, Adelle and I went to our first Fall Festival in Palmer out at the U-Pick farm. The U-pick farm is just that, you pick your own veggies. It's owned by members and has been for 30 years and used to be the welfare farm. Since then it has become a community farm as well. Its a beautiful place to either pick veggies or just bask in the experience.

They had this little pumpkin set which was $5 for them to take a family picture and then print it off for you, but they'd ran out of ink, so we paid the lady to take tons of pictures with our camera. This is our FIRST family picture so we were really excited! (We had not dressed for pictures, so we look pretty unorganized.) Unfortunately we weren't anticipating the beautiful sun right in our eyes, so it was pretty hard keeping them open for a picture. This was the best we could come up with and it's not so good.
Oh Well.

We met up with the Olsen's there. These were the wagon rides. Emma held Adelle as they went for a ride. Adelle is so lucky to have such great little cousins!

I also brought along my neighbor, little Kambree. She's my good little buddy who comes over everyday to brush my hair and help me around the house. I love her dearly. She made imidiate friends with Emma.




We found a little pumpkin patch, I am not sure what it was for, but we saw it as a wonderful photo opportunity. Again Adelle is not dressed for this.

She was OUT after nursing, more asleep than Ryan and I have seen her in a LONG time. You couldn't wake her, it was quite adorable. It was a long and glorious day! I love living in Palmer!


  1. I love the picture of Adelle with the yellow pumpkin in her lap. It`s like she is flailing around happy to make a friend pumpkin. Man shes so social shes making objects as friends! It looked so beautiful what a perfect day!

  2. I'm going to have to try and do a pumpkin picture like that! So cute!

  3. I am so bummed to have missed it this year. We love going out for that. I was in Ca for Time Out for Women. It was awesome and I am so glad I went!! I think your baby looks adorable in her pics--her little outfit is very cute.

  4. oh you guys all look so festive up there in alaska... and your girlie is adorable sleeping in that last picture... M did the cutest thing the other day, she fell asleep in the car but I had to run into joanns. I figured she'd wake up anyways, so I just pulled her out and layed her up on my shoulder, well she stayed passed out on my shoulder for like 30 minutes walking around joanns. She got so heavy but it was so cute I couldn't help but let her sleep. love ya!

  5. how much fun!!! Pumpkin hunting and hay rides are a blast. Love the family pic... you and I are twins!!! Check out our family pumpkin pics. too funny!
