More Fall Fun. . . .

Saturday we took Madison to Riley's Farm and Oak Tree Village in Glen Oak, CA and a couple of friends joined us, Justin and Nancy. It was a fun filled day of picking pumpkins, falling in the yucky dirt, taking pictures, petting horses, throwing apples, taking more pictures, riding ponies, petting pigs, feeding all sorts of animals, jumping around, skipping all naps and even more pictures! Madison picked out her pumpkin and we let her walk around, the first thing she did after she fell in the dirt was wipe her hands on her white top! I love the power of dreft!!!! After we paid for our pumpkins, we got a bag of apples and some yummy apple cider and headed off to Oak Tree Village a little further down the road. It was our first time at OTV so we didn't know what to expect. I knew they had a petting zoo because we actually met some of the animals the night before at a Fall Festival on base. So I came home and googled them. OTV, was a cute little 14 acres of country mountain fun in beautiful hills of CA. There was so much to do for the whole family. We walked through a reptile and marsupial house, with snakes-turtles-wallabies-rabbits-lizards-more snakes, then went to ride ponies, next was a petting zoo where we got to feed some goats and sheep, then on to a bouncey wonderland. We had tickets to ride a train but were told later that it broke down that morning, oh well you can never trust trains! We were all ready to leave and started to load up the truck, but I let the battery die! I had left our cooler plugged in and since my battery is 5 years old I guess it's time to replace it. . . .we got a jump off of some fellow 29 palms ladies and we were off. I was a little embarrassed but I will know to unplug that thing in the future~that's how we learn I suppose. The day was wrapped up with a stop at Chili's for some dinner and then up the hill to our wonderful desert home. It is sooo hard to imagine that we live so close to all that greenery and bounty when we see nothing but brown all around us everyday! Mommy and Daddy were just as tired as baby when we all got home from our long day of Fall Fun. . . .enjoy the pics and I also included some from the base Fall Festival.
