Poppell Farms~2012

We had a great time with the boys Sunday at Poppell Farms.  Sweet Gentry slept a lot of the time, but he's so little right now that there wasn't a lot for him to do anyway other than just be there with us, which makes me just as happy.

Jubal had fun last year, but this year he was able to run solo a little more.  Last year we had to stay right with him and he didn't get to do nearly as much.  He had a ball this year, though.

While he loved everything there, I think his favorite was the cow train.  He wanted to ride it over & over.  He even got to ride it all by himself!

There is a huge inflatable trampoline there.  He played on it for a long time, but unless his daddy was holding him, he didn't do much bouncing.  He would lie down and let everyone else bounce him around.  It was too cute!

Gentry & I pretty much just followed Larson & Jubal around.  I got to take all the pictures, which is why I didn't get to be in any.  Gentry did like looking around at all the kids squealing, though.

There was so much for Jubal to do.  I'll just let the pictures tell the story.

I didn't realize just how much Jubal had grown until I started comparing pictures from last year.  I really like the pics of him in the little playhouse.

A little side by side...

Jubal enjoyed the petting zoo a lot more this year, too.  He wasn't as afraid to touch them.  They didn't have the donkeys out this year, probably because they were having to warn everyone about them biting last year.

Last year he was so funny when he saw the geese because when they walked up to him and started honking, he started growling at them, his body shaking.  This year was no different.  HA!

This year, 2012

Last year, 2011

After petting all of the animals, we walked over to the mini hay maze since we weren't going to go to the corn maze.  Jubal refused to walk through the maze.  Instead, he wanted to walk over the maze. :)

It was getting later in the day and we had not eaten since breakfast so I knew Jubal needed at least a snack & Gentry was letting me know he was ready for a bottle.  We walked over to one of the tents they had set up so we could take a break before the hayride to the pumpkin patch.

When the tractor/trailer came back for us to get on to ride to the pumpkin patch, we went to get in line.  Evidently, both of my boys were tired and ready to go because they both had major meltdowns.  Jubal's was from not having a nap, and Gentry's was because he was ready for another one.  It was also hot outside. 

So, we didn't make it to the pumpkin patch this year, but that's okay.  We'll just buy pumpkins to carve.  I just wish we could have gotten a good family picture like we did last year.

I also wish I could have gotten some cute pictures of Gentry with all the little pumpkins and Charlie Brown like we got with Jubal.

Oh well!  Maybe next year.  We did have an awesome time this year, though.  I'm so happy spending time with my family.  No matter what we do.  Just as long as we're together.  That's all that matters to me.

    1. Thank you, Tanya! We certainly will be back this year. My baby boy is walking now, so both boys should be able to really enjoy themselves. We always have a great time & appreciate y'all giving us such a wonderful place to go. Maybe this year the weather will be a little cooler, too, since we've had such a rainy summer. Looking forward to coming!
