That's right, everyone. My baby is four. Those of you who've been reading along for a couple of years now...can you believe how the time has passed?
The cool thing about fall birthdays is all the options for parties - costumes or pumpkin painting or in this case - a pumpkin patch. This year we decided to host a party in the "Back Forty" at a working farm and pumpkin patch - Vollmer Farm in Bunn, North Carolina. If you have young children and you live within an hour (or even two) of this place, I highly recommend spending a day there. There are almost too many things to list that make this place awesome (but that won't keep me from trying): homemade icecream and pumpkin pies, the underground slide, a tractor-pulled train, the zip line, corn crib, and the awesomest pumpkin jumpy thing ever.
We got there early and snatched a couple of picnic tables close to a large tree and small pond. It was absolutely charming.
I wanted to post all seventeen hundred photos right here on the front page, but I thought that might be just a little hideous, so I've posted them HERE in a handy little photo album.
