Grandpa Kirk was in town last weekend, we felt it only proper that we do a bit of the touristy thing. Well, truth be told, we'd planned this agenda item ages ago, as it is fall in Northern Virginia and we cannot pass up a trip to Great Country Farms.
It is the third year in a row we have managed to spend the day out there with the Salty Dog Crew (and extended family) and it was, of course, a blast. We didn't manage every single activity, but Nick and Kelsey finally got to see P-Rex eat a pumpkin, Kelsey did the swing-thing, Nick hung out with Nate and Dad and I thought the place might shut down with Nick and Kelsey still on the bouncy pillow thing.
Oh, and Cait? Yep, she went and had a blast hanging out with Nate in the playground and the cow train. However, she also took some private time to read in a quiet area and I can't say I blame her, as it was the perfect day to read and laze a bit while everyone else runs around.
Of course we took pictures by the giant pumpkin and the ruler. I've posted pics from last year, as I simply cannot believe this is the same little guy from a year ago. His face has changed so much and, seriously, when did that happen?
And if you are wondering, I just didn't have the heart to tell Kelsey there is likely not a Great Country Farms in Managua. Guess we will just have to make do with a weekend at the beach instead!
