The Big Orange Pumpkin Farm

Since Lincoln is still so tiny, we didn't trick-or-treat (obviously) but I did want him to wear a costume to document his first Halloween. I wanted to get him a costume, but to be honest, we have some financial hurdles and there isn't much money to go around to buy one. So! He wore a more age-appropriate "costume" AKA glow in the dark pajamas! Our pumpkin experience was a far cry from what we were used to in California. The extent of our "patch" was usually in the parking lot of the local mall, or Target. Ha! The culture shock never ends around here... This was an actual farm. We rode on a hayride, ate a hot dog and interacted with animals that far exceeded a petting zoo. The owners of the farm are geniuses. For the price of your admission you get a hot dog and feed for the animals. If you visit on a weekday you also got a small pumpkin. They have devised a way to get you to pay directly for their animal feed. Smart business model! Anyway, here are some photos of our day:


  1. You are looking fabulous! Love the lil' outfit! We didn't bother dressing Stella up either, just a "first halloween" onsie. But she was only 2 weeks old, so it really seemed silly to try putting her in a costume. FYI... we are starting to get a collection of halloween costumes so hit me up late next summer and I'm sure I'll have one to send you, depending on his size. I think we have an adorable cow outfit.

  2. Haha I love the skeleton! And also your boots!
