LIGHTING UP THE NIGHT AT CAGLE'S FAMILY FARM

Weekend before last we drove the short trip with some friends to Cagle's Family Farm (I also mentioned it here).  We had the most amazing time. Matilda dressed in her fairy costume (a favorite!) and Phoebe strolled along in her Origami (keep reading for some exciting news...) as we watched a pig race, fed farm animals, traveled to ride on a hay ride, saw sheep herding and plenty of corn in their incredible three-mile corn maze.




Y'all I am pretty sure that this is the first hayride I've ever been on, at least it's the only one I remember! We piled in this use bed attached to a tractor and took a tour of the farm. We saw sheep herding demonstrations, as well as cow herding. Those dogs are incredible, it can take 2 and a half years to fully train them. The cows came right up the the tractor to get a little snack. Obviously the kids were in heaven.







After the hayride we gathered our complimentary baby pumpkins and headed over to feed the animals (!!). You could purchase food to feed them with and there were baby pigs, ducks, turkeys, chickens, cows, and other adorable furry creatures that I can't remember. So sweet! The animals were a huge hit and no one got bit (a couple of years ago Matilda was traumatized after being bit by a donkey - ha!).

sidenote: a few of you have asked about Phoebe's tights... they can be found right here






Our last two stops were the corn maze which I totally want to revisit. I had never been in a corn maze either. Totally want to go back with adult friends and do it and then maybe just maybe hit up the haunted barn. I mean, it sounded pretty awesome. They also have two in-ground bounce areas as well as funnel cakes and apple pies at the entrance/exit. The girls bounced forever on the "little kid" bouncer. Cutest ever.

OK, so I think I said I had some exciting news... well I totally do. I am beyond excited to be teaming up with my friends at 4moms (love them!) to give away to one super lucky winner... an Origami stroller! I could go on and on about how awesome this stroller is (collapses and opens with a touch of a button, self charges, has running lights) but you really have to watch the video to truly appreciate how ground breaking it is.

Amazing, right? There's just nothing like it. The ladies watching it unfold at the farm were in awe. It's awesome to see people's reactions to the Origami. I also wanted to tell you guys about the contest 4moms is having. In addition to entering below you can also enter their Light Up The Night costume contest right here. Share your photo with friends and family allowing them to vote for you and increase your entries! So fun. Best of luck!

  44. The pumpkin patch we visited this past weekend was nowhere near as beautiful as the one you went to! This time of year makes me wish we were enjoying it somewhere up north to actually see the leaves change. We are from Florida so we do not get to see any of that. My newborn girl was born with a full head of black hair and we thought it would be cute if she was snow white this year. My older son was suppose to be prince charming, but he decided he really really must be a ninja for the third time this year. Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. We're going as the cast of Labyrinth with our baby dressed as baby Toby

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sam is going to be a firefighter (again) and Levi is going to be his firehouse dalmation. Decided to upgrade to the "deluxe firefighter costume" this year since I learned last year he likes to use them for dress up the rest of the year. Unfortunately last year's was the cheapo version and my little firefighter has been running around with split pants and holes in his armpits the last few months :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Kaya is going to be Cinderella this year. I asked her what she wanted to be and she said- 'mama, I a PRINCESS!' She's 20 months, and she definitely knows what she wants!

    ReplyDelete
  48. That looks like the ninja of strollers! Awesome!

  58. Hi Lesley! That's one amazing stroller! Had never heard of it before. Max (4) is wearing a homemade Jake (and the Neverland Pirates) costume. My mom sewed him the most precious vest with silver anchor buttons. Neve (19 months) is going as a witch (also homemade costume) and wearing my cape that I wore many, many times growing up + made by my grandmother (we had it shortenend to fit her for this Halloween). Halloween (+ October) are my favorites, so much fun to be had!
