fedex family day...down on the farm!

fedex hosted another family day, this time located at boyert's farm. emma and i drove down to meet up with aaron and ty, who were already there early setting up. straw cowboy hats were donned by all the station managers (aaron's brainchild) for all to admire and to complete the farm ambience.

















it was the perfect location to kick-off the start of fall. there were plenty of games for the kids, a hay maze for the little ones, various farm animals to check-out, and lots of open space for the kids to roam around.

















































after a delicious meal, we waited for our turn to go on a hayride (an impressive group of young men did an excellent job maneuvering the tractors). emma was so excited to go that she couldn't stop talking about it. "go on the hayride, mommy" was pretty much all i heard. even as we took the ride. i think it's safe to say that she enjoyed every minute of the experience. tyler, on the other hand, played "mr. cool guy" and didn't show much excitement during the ride (must be an adolescent thing). i'm sure he was smiling and having a grand old time on the inside.




















































the hayride took us by a little pumpkin patch where each of us could pick our own pumpkins. tyler found a pretty good sized one for himself (see...he was having fun), and he picked a cute little one for emma (though it was still too heavy for her to carry).













emma and i headed back home as it approached 8 p.m., but tyler will be staying all the way through...until tear-down (probably 11 or so!). it sounded like there was still more to come: bon-fires, roasting marshmallows, and making smores. he had won a handful of glowsticks from bobbing apples and is planning to bust them out once the darkness ensues. with all of the running and jumping mixed with an abnormal amount of sugar, tyler will be so worn out when he gets home he won't know what to do with himself.
