Today we went to a farm that's by our friend's house. It was pretty great for a short morning out with two crabby toddlers. We got cider and donuts that were HOT and gooey and sugary and so yum. Unfortunately the bees came swarming over and attached themselves to us, so instead of sitting outside in the gorgeous day, we ended up inside. Oh well. Better than drinking a bee (they were diving in our cups! Gross!) or getting stung.
There were pony rides and a little petting area with piglets and goats. I love goats. I think I've said it before, I'd love to have a goat or two someday. And some chickens. Ingrid liked to pet the goats but when the pigs would come sniff at her she got the most horrified look on her face and then kept wiping her hands off. She's got a thing about getting her hands dirty lately, MY messy child!
We'll have to go back with Brendan and get our pumpkins--they had huge ones for $5! Wherever we went last year wanted an arm and a leg for them, so this is a much better deal. And Ingrid didn't get to ride a pony today because we just didn't feel like it, how's that for lazy?! Two pregnant mamas with a sassy two year old each, we were all about the donuts, not so much about the horses!
In baby news, our midwife appointment went fine yesterday. I've only gained 7 lbs in the past five months, which totally makes me see why I'm so tired all the time--this damn baby is sucking me dry!! I by NO means watch what I eat, I eat all day long it seems like, so there's no reason I shouldn't have gained weight. I'm not complaining, but it suddenly made sense why I always feel so tired and worn out. He's kicking like crazy and making my belly all alien like. It's so funny to watch my belly and see it move, knowing there's a human being in there! It's like science fiction, people! And he's only the size of a small banana now, when he's a melon it'll be even worse!
