Brookdale Farm - Hollis, NH

Friday, October 21, 2016

A favorite place of mine to go is Brookdale Farms in Hollis, NH. We have been going since I was a young spring chicken back in the 1800's, and I wanted to continue that tradition with my kids. 

Speaking of spring chickens, Marin LOVED them and would get upset if we tried to walk away.
"See this?"
We woke up this goose (which I called a swan at first OH MY LANTA GET SOME SLEEP MELISSA) and he had a feather in his nostril and the 4-year-old in me laughed a little too hard.
Sweet baby hair is getting long! Only 14 more years until I can put it in a pony tail.
Love these two.
Jack is so good with Marin (77% of the time). You can tell he really watches where she goes and is protective of her. My man.
"Can I kiss this sheep too?"
"How about you, Auntie Grace? My mom said no, so I will ask you. Can I kiss this guy or what?"

Back to the swans. #willneverlivethatdown
Am I lucky or what? Perfect little kids.
I wanted to get them both smiling and sitting so nicely and then I realized that that is not happening so I took one picture and said "good enough" Jack is hilarious anyways so it is perfect in my opinion. It shows my funny, spirited 5-year-old and my 18-month-old who is always on the go. These are the pictures you look back on and remember them at that age. Then you go in your closet and cry. 
Marin does this thing where she will sit randomly and say "cheeeeeese!"
I clearly don't mind!

And as always, I love their shop and picked up some succulents and little holders for them for our master bathroom! I wanted to explore some more but...children.

Love these candle holders below.
And this giant bowl!

Love those cuties. And that place! I hope you are enjoying your fall so far! Have a great weekend!

Simple Halloween Decor

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

I have a question for you. What sounds rhymes with Gallowfeen? WALLOWDEEN! YOU ARE RIGHT! Ok, you didn't fall for my horrid joke. So its Halloween. WOOO! I totally enjoy Halloween but it isn't something I go crazy for in the decoration department like Christmas. But with Jack having a party and the simple fact of having two kiddos, I decided to do some fun but simple decorating.

Jon totally loved this. MUAHAHA. Yes those are fake bats hanging from our dining room light. 
YOU'RE LUCKY THEY AREN'T REAL!! (Maniacal laugh)
Jack loved it and Marin thought they were cats for some reason.
I loved this ghost that my mother-in-law gave me! So cute and perfect to hold our maters. Thats to-maters.

Now my question the heck do I photograph my window with the faucet? I tried my best. I love this window and love to decorate it. The large pumpkin is from T.J. Maxx and I HAD to have it. The candle from Target and it smells like heaven. The cute little sign is from a little shop here in town.

I also grabbed this cute Pumpkin light from T.J. Maxx.
Here's our mantle. The TV makes it hard to decorate with anything that has height to it. So four mini pumpkins and this bat garland from Target was perrrrfect.

One thing I have been doing is adding Jacks school work and art projects to our basement door! It warms up the house and since our fridge isn't magnetic, gives us a fun place to display his adorable creations. Just love him!

So that is it for the inside. Jacks Halloween party is this Saturday so I will be going a little cray inside AND outside. Can't wait to show you. 

Ready for another bad joke?
Too bad.

What is the mummy’s favorite musical program?
Name that tomb!

Ok, I will leave you alone now. 

Davis Farmland - Sterling MA

Monday, October 17, 2016

There's nothing better than Fall in New England! The trees, the pumpkins, the fun fall activities and all that bidness. We ventured out to Davis Farmland last week and had a blast! Davis Farmland is incredible. We went in the summer a few times to the water park and play area and were there for HOURS. There is stuff to do for kids of all ages and the food is actually super delicious. Since the corn maze was open, we went to that side and the wind was out of this world but we all still had fun. I think I may need a bouncy house in the back yard! 

Jack loves American Ninja Warrior and I have a feeling that he felt like he was on the show!

There were little baby mice running around and were so cold! The kids loved to see them and pet them (very gently)

I think their favorite was the big slide! Even Marin loved it!

Marin also tried to kiss the farm animals a few times. My inner self was screaming GERMS GERMS GOAT DISEASE GERMS. But I let her give one a big peck.

Love that little munchkin and her kisses that I get ONCE A WEEK I SWEAR.
So we crossed off going to a fair from the Fall bucket list! Yesterday we got our big ol' pumpkin and apples and we have Jacks halloween party this weekend! I can't wait to share that with you. Happy Monday!
