Old Baker Farm

Joel and I caught the horrible stomach bug last week, at the same.exact.time. It was a doozy. We both got sick at midnight on Tuesday night and it lasted all day on Wednesday, and we were still not feeling 100% until today. It's pretty bad when both parents are so sick that you can't take care of your own child. Joel's dad came over at the crack of dawn Wednesday morning and got Hudson and didn't bring him back until 7 that night, and put him straight to bed. We were so thankful for their help! We were completely unable to care for him. Luckily, he never got it. That is truly amazing.

Yesterday, we were desperately needing some time outside of the house, so we all headed down to Harpersville and went to the pumpkin patch at Old Baker Farm. I was so excited about it! Of course, it had to be 100 degrees yesterday. Poor Hudson burned up in his long sleeved shirt and pants, but he had to wear a pumpkin outfit to go to the pumpkin patch!

Hudson loved these little tractors and threw a fit when we had to leave them! They also had a live band, which was a lot of fun.

They had a little animal area with all of Hudson's favorites...goats, pigs, horses, cows, turkeys, and rabbits! This was definitely his favorite part!

Hudson kissing the calf!

He LOVED the calf! Joel had to hold him back or else that poor calf might have been strangled by our little Hudson! Ha!

He also loved the little chicks!

After the animals, we got on a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch.

The pumpkin patch was NOT a hit. It was actually a disaster and we pretty much just had to grab our pumpkins and go! Hudson did not like it at all.

Our child was the only child throwing an all out FIT in the pumpkin patch. Time to go!

In his defense, it was really hot out there and he had a hard time walking. He kept tripping and when his hands hit the dirt, you would have thought it was the end of the world. He hates having anything on his hands!

On our way out, we got to ride the tractors one more time before throwing an all out mega fit, kicking and screaming, all the way out to the car. I think it was naptime!

I will say that we will definitely go back next year! There was a lot for Hudson to see and do. They even had a corn maize and a hay maze that I wanted to do, but our time was limited with little man being so cranky. Even Joel said it was fun, and that's a lot coming from someone would probably have rather been sitting in front of Gameday all morning instead of driving to Harpersville! Ha! It was $10 a person with under 2 free, so we paid $20 and got 2 pumpkins and had a fun morning. It was well worth it! I think next year will be better with Hudson when he might actually be interested in finding that "perfect" pumpkin!

On our way home, I got the phone call that I had been impatiently waiting on all morning long...Carrie is ENGAGED!!! Yay!!! I'm so happy for my little sister I can't hardly stand it! I've had to keep this little secret for a while now and I'm SO glad that she finally got what she wanted and now we can start wedding planning!!! I can't wait! She's coming home next weekend and I just can't wait to see her with that bling on her finger!

Today has been "take back our house" day. After being sick last week and lazy this weekend, our house was out of control to say the least. Our maid didn't get to come last week, so it was cleaning day! I forgot how much I hate cleaning and it reaffirmed that the cost of having a maid is SO worth it (for us!). I will sacrifice in many other ways not to lose that! Ha!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
