Summer Harvest at The Farm

Ah, summer harvest.  What’s the first image that comes to your mind? 

I know!  It’s this, right?

Well this just happened to be one of my favorite spots at the summer harvest festival at The Farm last weekend.  Summer weather along the California central coast is certainly not what I expected when we got orders to “sunny California.”  I am still holding out hope for the Indian summer I’ve heard about that we should be seeing the next few months. 

The cold, not-so-sunny weather didn’t hamper our spirits though.

I’m pretty sure this little boy would like a hay ride in any kind of weather.

We saw the end of one crop and the beginning of another.

After the hayride, a puppet show was next on the agenda.  Nearly an hour sitting and watching Hansel & Gretel, and my kids did great!  Charlotte sat with me and Jarrod, and Trenton had a front row seat.

My kids would eat watermelon with every meal if I let them, so they were pretty pumped about the watermelon eating contest. 

Especially Trenton.

Charlotte must have missed the memo about eating fast, but Trenton meant business.

Trenton didn’t come in first place, but he was close.  And this served as a good lesson to teach him that he can’t always win. 

After watermelon, it was time to move on to corn.  My corn lovers were excited!

This was our first time visiting The Farm, and you can bet that we’ll be back for more of their upcoming events (many of which are FREE).  What a fun place!
