Mother Nature's Farm

Every year I look forward to visiting Mother Nature's Farm in Mesa. For the past three years Scott and I have kept our little tradition of visiting the farm every year around Halloween. This year we went on a cool, Autumn evening and had so much fun checking out their little farm store, admiring the pumpkins (they had some crazy looking ones!), and wandering around the farm grounds.

I kind of loved how my outfit fit the occasion! I've been waiting for the perfect evening to pull out these rusty orange tights, and our date to the pumpkin patch seemed like the perfect time. I was also pretty happy that I was actually able to wear tights and not be sweating death (we're still have 90 degree days around here). The evenings really are starting to cool down, though, and I am SO excited to be able to pull out some of my favorite sweaters and boots again!

The farm itself is quite charming (especially for being in the middle of the city), and we really couldn't have gone on a more perfect evening. The weather was beautiful, the farm was busy, but not too busy, and the fall/Halloween spirit could be felt all around.

Before we headed out on our hay ride, Scott and I had a little visit with the farm's sweet animals. This cute donkey was loving Scott (especially after he gave him a giant carrot). They had so many cute goats as well!

We topped off our evening with a hay ride around the farm. I truly enjoyed our pumpkin patch/farm visit, and really feel blessed that we have something like this in the middle of the city!

My weekend was full of celebrations and lots sweet treats! Today I'm trying to get a handle on my giant stack of homework, and getting really excited about dressing up for Halloween on Wednesday!

Do you go to a favorite pumpkin patch every year? Have you carved a pumpkin yet?
