Fall Pics and That is All... Literally!

Good Monday afternoon!

RANDOMNESS #1 - Tate Farms - This was our second year to go to Tate Farms in Meridianville, and once again, we loved it.

There are always a ton of people there, but it is spread out so well, you never feel like you're in a big crowd.

For some reason, the older I get, the less I like big crowds. Twenty years ago, the "crowd thing" wouldn't have been plus, but it is on the top of my list when I visit places now. The less people in my way, the happier I tend to be.

One of the OTHER things I enjoy about Tate Farms would have to be the photo ops.

They are everywhere!

Believe it or not, there are many more of them to choose from during your visit.

It doesn't matter what activities are provided, as long as swings are available, Miss Judith is happy.

Very happy.

I have never actually gotten into the Big Box O' Corn, but it looks like fun.

Maybe next year.

One of these didn't end well.

I'll let you guess which one.

A big pumpkin patch can be very overwhelming.

Out of a sea of orange pumpkins, Judith set her sights on a small green one.

It suited her, I thought.

This looks like a little kiddie ride, doesn't it?

Looks can be deceiving.

The farmers who drive these tractor rides must be retired NASCAR drivers.

They fly by, but no one is complaining.

The last five pics were taken by Courtney's friend, Crystal, and these are just a few of some of my favorites from our day.

RANDOMNESS #2 - Zoo Day with Pop - Mike met us at the Zoo for a picnic. It was a beautiful Fall day, and no perspiration made it even more special.

She and Pop were looking for bears.

When we go on a Zoo visit, we don't spend two or three hours there. We ride the train, eat lunch and visit four or five of the animals.

We always go through the Barn before heading to the BIG, exotic, wild animals.

At the end of each visit when asked about her favorite part, it will always be one of the farm critters.

One day it was the chicken.

One day it was the pig.

On this particular day, it was the rare and extremely dangerous blue-eyed goat.

I kid you not.

Did you get the "goat pun" in that last sentence?

Did you?

RANDOMNESS #3 - Boo at the Zoo - Mike and I were invited to Boo at the Zoo with RT and his Mom and Dad.

I know Little Man will not remember his first trip to Boo at the Zoo, but as you can plainly see, the pics indicate he had a wonderful time...

And all of the adults will remember that!

RT was dressed in Safari Pajamas for the night.

I wish I felt confident in my 56 year-old self to wear pajamas/festivity clothing.

Maybe when I'm 86.


That's a plan.

I love how babies love to look at ceiling fans...

Or carousel ceilings.

He was just fascinated.

When was the last time you got on a carousel and clapped with joy?

We can learn a lot from little ones.


You can see the red-rimmed eyes have appeared. Little Man was getting ready to turn in for the night.

However, since we had not yet gone through the Trick-or-Treat portion of the evening, we put the pumpkin bucket on his little belly and plowed through. In our defense, his eyes were still open during the two or three minutes it took to gather sweets...

And Melia asked him if he minded us eating the chocolate portion of his treats.

He told us to go for it...

And we did.

The Heading says it all.

Fall Pics and That is All!

Have a great Halloween. I'll be back in a few days with the last of the October pics, and perhaps, something of substance.

One can always hope!
