One of my student's last semester did her career project on running an organic farm and she worked for a day out at Cruze Farm. I decided to try it this year for our annual trip to a pumpkin patch after seeing someone on Facebook going there and raving about it. The cool thing about this place is that it's a dairy farm so that means fresh ice cream. They also had LOTS for toddlers to do there so it was a hit with Ellie! We went with most of the Cragwall's (Grandmommy, Aunt April, Uncle Jimmy, Cousins Parker & Taylor, and Aunt Jamie) to do something together. The farm is only a few minutes away from Jesse's parent's house so it worked out great. Once we got there, the kids got to see the dairy cows and then Ellie got to ride on a toy tractor and play in the hay bales. Then, we got to go on a hayride out to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins. Ellie found "the one" for her and I found one for me! Carving will take place this week. Then, we came back and enjoyed some of the farm's famous ice cream - YUMMY! It was a good day out in the Fall weather I love.
