Apple Harvest Weekend With Tyler

Autumn is here in full force!
We spent a chilly weekend here on the farm, with temps barely out of the 50's.

Hubbs and I picked enough apples on Friday to make a couple of gallons of apple sauce,
an apple pie and an apple harvest cake.
And with all of this apple goodness, we felt the need to share and celebrate with our kids.

Tyler joined us on Saturday and spent a fun day with Grammie and Muppy.
We took him to a central PA attraction called "Clyde Peeling's Reptiland".

What little boy doesn't enjoy reptiles, lizards and snakes...

not to mention dinosaurs!

Sunday was spent on the farm with family.

We had a fire in the pizza oven and had our own little Apple Harvest Festival.

We feasted on pizza, salad,  and our apple desserts, played shuffleboard,

and visited with the animals.

With absolutely no fear of the animals,
Tyler is always more than happy to help with the farm chores.

I think the animals enjoy the enthusiasm of a four-year-old!

I've got to tell you...
Moonbeam is one very sweet horse...
and so very tolerant!
Did you catch what Tyler called Ollie?...
"you white guy!"
(This little boy is the apple of my eye!)

  4. Oh my goodness. How cute is this video of Tyler and what a sweet little voice he has. You've done a great job making sure he (and the animals of all size) are comfortable around each other. Precious. Cooler temps have finally come to Austin as well.
