The Sunflower Festival

Sorry I've been MIA for a while... we have been very busy (more on that a different day!)...but anyway.. a couple of weeks ago we headed out to Reading for the Gorman Heritage Farm Sunflower Festival.

From the Gorman Farms website:
Gorman Heritage Farm is a 122-acre working farm and outdoor education center, which invites its visitors to explore and learn the history, methods and values of a working family farm in a natural setting. 

We went with some friends to enjoy a fall day at the farm and to hopefully get some good sunflower pictures. Unfortunately the rain came a day earlier than it was supposed to... but fortunately we got some wholesome family fun in before the rain got too bad...

After checking out some cute things that the farm had going on, we hopped on Hannah's first hayride and headed up to the sunflower patch!


SO pretty, right?..sunflowers everywhere! You could also grab some shears and cut them and take them home for 50 cents a stem... We took home a big bouquet of them..


And of course we had to take advantage and get some cute shots of our little sunflower


See that dead flower to the right of her? I took about 500000 pictures of her sitting in this spot and that dead flower is in every.single.one. #sunflowerfestivalfail

Dead flower aside, we got some pretty cute pics.



I absolutely adore this sweet little family of mine :)


Then we kept walking and came across a little petting zoo..Hannah got to met some interesting animals.

um... I am pretty sure that is not maggie.


This is the point where it started to rain, so we had to end our farm adventure a little early...but not before the obligatory making babies stick their heads in wooden cutouts picture.

Hannah & Dad

And another with her main squeeze Gavin.


I'm excited to take her back when she's a little older and can understand some of the lessons they have there about where food comes from and all that. It was a great fall day!
