A Great Day

Sunday was one of those really great days.  It just happened with little planning.  It was a day that made me to thankful for all the blessings I have!

It started out with DH having a cup of coffee ready for me when I got out of the shower.  Then we headed to church for bible study and worship service. 

After church we had a picnic at the waterfront.  It was a gorgeous fall day.  There was a clear blue sky, a slight breeze and warm temps.  There were kids playing in the playground and munchkin was happy in her car seat.  She hates her car seat but it helped that she snoozed a little while we ate.  I fed her and then we were on our way.

We headed up to Kingston to Sunrise Hill Farm.  I had found it online and we were super excited to find a farm that had a pumpkin patch!  What made it even better is that they were having a Hero’s weekend.  So for the corn maze all active/reserve/vet/fire/police etc were free and there immediate families were 1/2 off.  What a great deal!2012-09-30 14.35.46

We had a great time in the maze and even managed to find all 8 checkpoints!  It helps that DH used to navigate a sub…a maze isn’t that hard.  We only got turned around once or twice.  Munchkin wasn’t sure what to make of it (she was in her stroller) but about half way through she fell asleep.  I think it was the bumpiness.  I was just happy she wasn’t crying! 

After the maze we walked around the farm.  It was smaller than I expected but it was nice.  They had a horse drawn cart ride,  U-Pick flowers, a pumpkin patch, pumpkin slingers and apple picking.  I think I saw about 8 apple trees on the property but they were full of apples.  There was also a small hay made for little kids.  I’m looking forward to next year when Munchkin is bigger and will be a little more involved in fun fall activities!2012-09-30 14.46.25

Once we got home, The Man kept Munchkin so I could get out and have some me time.  I had realized the night before that I hadn’t had any in a long, long time.  I hit a few thrift stores and then enjoyed a cup of Carmel Apple Cider at Starbucks while reading a book.  When I got home The Man had dinner ready and Amazing Race was on.


It was just a great day.  Nothing to complicated, just time with my favorite people!
