Tolay Festival

October 29th, 2012. (4 years, 4 months old.) by ben

Now that Fall is here, it’s time to go pick pumpkins!  Our first pumpkin patch trip was to the Tolay Festival.

They had a hay ride that took out out to the pumpkin patch.  I got to sit right in front where we could see the tractor really well.

At the pumpkin patch, I worked on finding the perfect pumpkin.   There sure were a lot of non-perfect pumpkins to weed through!  But I finally found it

Later we stopped to see some 2 day old baby chicks.  I got to hold one!  He was very light and fuzzy.

They had lots of other interesting things to look at.  There were snakes and scorpions and even a great horned owl!

Here there were some 100 year old steam engines that people used to use on farms.  One is hooked to a washing machine (Ed. Note: brown, in background), and the other is hooked to a water pump!  What crazy contraptions!

I’m looking forward to the best part of Fall: Halloween!

Recycling Truck

My new recycling truck and forklift have now joined all my other Lego trucks.

Daddy says I have so many Lego trucks, but I just want to get the ones I don’t have so that I’ll have them all.  What’s wrong with that?

Wedding Visit

October 10th, 2012. (4 years, 4 months old.) by ben

Cousin Bryan got married and Avery and I got to come to the wedding.  Doesn’t Avery look pretty?

There was a kids room where we got to play, and I got a tiger cat face painting!


On the way home, I  tried to be helpful by carrying the luggage.  I’m strong enough to pull it now.

Field Trip to Twin Hill Ranch

October 8th, 2012. (4 years, 4 months old.) by ben

The Penguins took a field trip to Twin Hill Ranch.  Farmer Jeff gave us a tour.

He showed us how they clean and sort the apples, and later we got to try our hand at picking some!

We also got to have a snack.   They had yummy apple bread.

I hope we can go back sometime!

The farmer’s market has very yummy Ben-yays that I get to have sometimes.


Visit from Grandma and Grandpa

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit in Grandpa’s old time car.  He says it is a ’51 Ford.

I’m only 4… 51 is really old!
