Schnepf Farms Extravaganza (part 1)

Just like last year, we took Emery to Schnepf Farms for their Pumpkin Festival. Jeff even took the day off since it was a muddy mess the week before when he had fall break. It was pretty much the same as last year but we still had a great time. This year was still pretty toasty so in some of the pictures you'll see us trying to get in the shade to stay slightly cooler. I was definitely missing the nice Utah fall weather and leaves that all of my friends had been posting pictures of but come January we'll be even. It was fun watching Emery enjoy things a bit more this year since she is older and more mobile. She is at such a fun age and stage of life and we are loving every minute.

Waiting for the Dog Show to start. Once again, she screamed and cried, terrified, once the dogs came out. Oh well, we tried. See us precariously placed in the sole section of shade? You do what you have to when it's 90+ degrees in October.

The one thing that we got to see this year that we missed last year was the BMX stunt show. It was pretty cool and Emery really enjoyed watching them do the tricks on their bikes and skateboard.

She didn't like the hay on her hands.
 Next, it was off to see the animals!
Saying hello to the GIGANTIC cow. This thing is seriously huge.

Hi Sheep! She wasn't quite sure about having the animals so close but warmed up pretty quickly. 

"Oooo"--looking at the cows

She spent the most time here with the cows

One of them shook its head to get the flies off and she wasn't sure how she felt about it for a minute.

"Hi Cow!"


This was her pose for the day, created all by herself

"Okay, Mom, enough pictures. I just want to go see the cows again."

Her face in this picture makes me laugh
Next came the goats...Jefferson took her inside the petting zoo portion full of goats. Let's just say, we'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Going in

Doing okay...

The goat "baaahhhh"-ed and she was not a fan

"Oh Dad, let's get out of here and go over THERE!"

Okay, maybe I'll give them another chance.

Nope! This is a great picture! Jeff is in heaven and Emery is terrified.

Emery's tell is having her hands in her mouth. She is obviously very nervous here but Dad is loving it. 

More to come on our visit to Schnepf Farms but I've apparently uploaded too many pictures for one blog post.
