Griffin and I spent three days last week at the Camp McDowell Farm School!! The farm school is new to Camp McDowell, it’s only been there about a year. We arrived on Monday around lunch and got settled into our cabins…girls in one, boys in the other! There were only 7 girls on the trip so it really wasn’t bad at all! After settling in we ate lunch and then got right to work! The first thing we did was plant some red cabbage in a raised bed. After planting we took a tour around the farm to visit the animals! That night we went on a night hike. In the woods. With NO flashlight…nothing! We hiked and fell down a steep hill and ended up in a cave! It was super cool…we were behind a waterfall…and there were GLOW WORMS in the cave! SO FUN! The next day we had farm chore duty! As in, milking the goats, feeding the goats, feeding the hogs, chickens and everything else! It was fun but it was work! That afternoon we spread several tons of gravel to make a new drive area close to the barn. And by we I mean everyone but ME! haha! The next day we had a farm to table class where we picked things from the garden and cooked. It was fun but I was BEYOND ready to come home!!

Way back on October 30th we celebrated Griffin’s 13th birthday by throwing a party at our house! We had a big bon fire, ate smores, hot dogs and cake and ice cream! The kids all had the best time just hanging out with each other and acting crazy!
The very next day was Halloween and it was a rainy one! Boo! We hung out and ate with my sister and her fam and then decided to trick or treat at the mall….well we were late apparently because the stores were out of candy! Thankfully Big Mama had stocked the kids all up so we were good to go! I heart them!

On Friday night, we went to the fair! It was lots of fun! We ate fair food, rode fair rides and played fair games! :) His first gum… There aren’t many pictures of G and P because they spent their time riding rides like this… There was also a petting zoo there! They had a baby zebra!!!! It was SO cute, 8 weeks old! And this guy was my fav!
On Sunday after church we headed to north Alabama for this little guy…
I have been wanting a piggy for a while. I wanted one a very long time ago and then decided that we have enough animals! About a year or so ago my sister started trying to talk me into it and I told her she was bat cray. A few months ago I finally decided that we needed one! haha! So, since then, I’ve been researching and researching! Finally, last week I came across this fellow and couldn’t resist! We are working on litter box training so we’ll see how that goes! He also already has his Halloween costume! :)

Today is Big Mama’s 87th birthday! I love her more than anything! I call her anytime I need advice on anything and everything…she knows it ALL! We had a fancy lunch at Kozy’s and then I’m sure she was off to Walmart! My sister and I picked a card that said, “Happy 21st Birthday!” so she got a kick out of that!!
Happy Birthday Big Mama!!

We had a wonderful Saturday at the Griffin Farms Pumpkin Patch! This was the same one we went to last year and it’s great! I’m so glad that we finally have a pumpkin patch in our area! We went through the corn maze, played in the corn cribs, played with the animals, visited with Mickey Mouse, played in bouncy houses, stepped on a bee in one, slid in the giant culvert slide 975 times, ATE PUMPKIN PIE FUNNEL CAKE!!, rode the zip line, climbed the rock wall, rode the hay ride to get our pumpkins…I’m sure there’s something I’m leaving out but you get it…we had a blast! Stung by the mean ol bee! :( Seriously…I don’t do pumpkin flavored stuff but this was SO GOOD! And we ended the day with a big Bama win!!!! Roll Tide!
