Freeman Farms Pumpkin Festival!

Fall, fall, fall. Our favorite time of year. Except for here in Arizona
that is. Why? Well we don't really have one. And while the rest of
our family and friends ring in the season with coats, sweaters and
crisp cool air at football games.....we are stuck sweating and waiting
for the temperatures to break like a bad fever. Every year we start
to get a "little" impatient with the summer heat and start
praying for the cool, beautiful winter weather that justifies our
living here. So what do we do in the meantime? While it's still too
hot to feel like fall? We get the heck out of Dodge, and we get out
as often as we can! This weekend we decided on a last minute trip
to Freeman Farms just outside of Prescott, AZ to take the kids
to the Pumpkin Festival. It was exactly what we needed; great
weather, good company, a lot of pumpkins, animals, tractors, hay
rides, face painting, kettle corn, a corn maze and a train ride
that included an old fashioned train robbery by the Old West Acting
group. Here are a few pics from the weekend, thanks for the
invite Harbecks, we had a great time! Now to figure out where
we will escape to this weekend.....hmmmm?
