Two weekends ago, Rich flew up to Utah to watch a BYU football game with his dad.  I was going crazy in the house with the 3 little men, so we decided to hit Vertuccio Farms on Saturday morning.
We usually go to Schnepf Farms every Fall as a family.  We'll still go this year, probably next week... but Vertuccio is much smaller and much more manageable when you have 3 boys to herd around by yourself.  Whew!

Bounce houses, of course, are always a hit...

I don't know what to call this thing... a huge piece of rubber, inflated by a bounce house.  This is only a small section of it.  It was the size of a basket ball court... maybe?  The kiddoes were catching some major air thanks to some of the big kids jumping on it.  Maybe a little too much air.  
Damon panicked after being rocketed into the sky... Dom climbed up to the top and talked him down. 

The boys are shouting, "I'm the King of the Worrrrld!"

They ran through hay bale mazes...

And saw all sorts of animals...

One of the highlights of our trip to Vertuccio was the barrel train ride...

...Mommy and Drew even got on that thing!

The boys got to milk a "cow"!

And were especially excited to run through the corn maze!


There were tunnels to be explored...

...bells to be rung...

...and crows to conk!
Drew just sat there in the stroller like the ANGEL he is, and watched his brothers run from one thing to another. 
What a fun (tiring) Saturday!  We loved Vertuccio and it seems like we'll have to add it to our annual Fall To-do List... which is growing longer and longer!  I absolutely love this time of year.  It's finally getting a little bit cooler and the boys can run and romp outside and enjoy the fresh air.  And speaking of air... it's full of excitement and anticipation this season.  Anticipation of Halloween and trick-or-treating, of Thanksgiving... and yes, already I am excited for Christmas.  I may or may not be burning Christmas scented candles in my house and listening to Celine Dion's Special Times... don't judge.  ;)
Happy, happy Fall!  Yay!
