the annual pilgrimage...

...to the pumpkin farm happened yesterday. Spoke to Amy in the morning and as rain was forecast all week, and yesterday was looking ok we decided to brave it!
Seriously image intense blog entry!
Another fabulous magical day was spent at the farm, we didn't leave til about 5pm!
So pics-

It appears J and I are now the designated chicken catchers- naughty wee buggers were all escaping from their part of the field, there is a gap in the hedge that (although I don't think they would go through) leads to the road, and it is a busy one!

Sooo- J is my herder...





and I catch them...




smitten with this one- she was a real cutie...led down and put her head feathers up for a tickle! Bless!





So, round one of animals done- off for the magical trailer ride to the pumpkin patch...J chose her pumpkin, and they hunted under the pumpkins for fairy hands- if they find one they get a shiny 50p piece- lucky kids eh?! Of course every single child found a fairy hand, well whaddya know- how lucky was that ;)





Back to the farm and more playing along the pumpkin trail, this years theme was Matt Macdonalds farm, and all the animals, in true Over farm tradition, were made from produce grown on the farm- way too many pics to put up here, but this one is cute- taken inside the house made of pumpkins, of J feeding the horse peeping through the window...





Then round two of the animals- I got bitten by a baby vietnamese pot bellied pig- charming! Rafiki the water buffalo was not feeling very sociable, so no pics of his this year, but on top form as usual- the donkeys were happy, sociable, and as mad as ever


We all came home filthy and totally exhausted- I mean that much proper fresh air is enough to knock anyone out, but totally happy having had a wonderful day filled with magic!
