Dewberry Farm 2008!! What a difference a YEAR makes..

Today, we went to Dewberry Farm. What a difference a year makes! We got there right at 10a & didn't leave till 130p! We all had a great time. There was SOO much to do. We rode the hayride, pet the animals, picked pumpkins, picked fresh flowers, ate a YUMMY lunch & the girls jumped on the jumpy thing they have! FUN FUN FUN! Last year, we didn't have much fun. The girls were tiny and we were so scheduled that we only stayed for an hour or two. Here are a ton of pics...ENJOY!

I'm not sure what it is about the pic that is soo good! DSC02165

All in all we had a great day. After our trip, we decided to take the long road home and drive through a couple of neighborhoods we wanted to check out for potential homes. FUN FUN! Paul is pretty much set on one neighborhood with big lots..the houses there are ranch style and look like beautiful houses right out of a magazine for farm houses. The only problem we are finding is that they are WAY too big. The neighborhood is like ours..not many houses since they are soo spread out which we really like. Now that we've lived here we can't imgaine living CLOSE in proximity to another house. We like our privacy. One other problem we found is that the neighborhood's like this do NOT have a school IN the community. So the girls will end up going to a public school across the street in another community, which will be fine, but the won't be able to ride their bikes since it's across a busy street. It won't bother me, but Paul really wantd the girls to be able to ride their bikes to school I don't think there's a *perfect* community for anyone, so this will be something we'll just have to deal with since the neighborhood is soo nice!

What great pics!!!! And I agree - a year makes a HUGE difference. My girls were shy & bashful two years ago and not mention only stayed about an hour due to feeding & nap times. Last year, they were all about it. We are taking them this year too - oh, note to self wear tennis shoes so I can run & catch up with them!!!

Again, wonderful pics!!!!
