"Pick your own what, Mommy? Your nose? My nose? Hahahaha!"
That's how the conversation started when we told the kids we were going to a Pick-Your-Own farm the other Sunday.
Fortunately, the day went up from there. (I mean, seriously, did it have anywhere else to go?)
We went to Alstede Farms in Chester, NJ, which is quite possibly the best P-Y-O farm we have ever been to, and the flattest one - perfect for pushing a double stroller when you are totally out of shape. I'm just saying.
We went early in the morning, before naptime, and we were back in time to catch the 3pm showing of Arthur in our living room.
The kids had a blast – besides for apple orchards and pick-your-own flowers and pumpkin patches, this farm has a huge haystack for the kids to climb, a corn maze and a stacked hay tunnel that even our two year old could walk through alone. Of course, if you ask the kids, they will say that the best part was buying ice cream in the marketplace. Roll your eyes if you must, but they do sell good ice cream. And cherry tomatoes. Orange ones. Deeelicious.
Oh wait, I was wrong. I just asked the kids what the best part was and they said the bathrooms. There was a long row of port-a-potties and they visited each one “just to make sure mommy.”
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
