Escaping the Tucson Metropolis (haha) For a Harvest Festival Kind of Day

On Sunday we loaded up the radio flyer wagon, dressed Otto and his dad in matchy farm-esque button-ups, were joined by my in-laws (aka Nana and Papa), and headed south down Mexico way (but not quite south of the border) to Agua Linda Farm. Hurray!


We were kicking a** and taking names at the hay maze!


I chose that dishevelled looking pumpkin up front ---> the one who thought the Purell I put in his hand was hair gel & styled himself up with it after touching a goat's butt...


In other animal news, Otto went on his first pony ride and was like an instant equestrian pro. Nana kept calling the horse "Whitey" and every time she did I died a little of internal laughter. "You love Whitey don't you?" haha! Gets me every time! ps. Nana was being sweet and sincere and I am just a bonehead with a lowbrow sense of humor.

Ot and I were both sporting new kicks, too. How hip are we? (Don't answer that unless you think we're super hip.) His were a gift from Nana and I'm madly in love! Mine were a probably irresponsible impulse buy but I went all summer without any new shoes & I've been drooling over these "house shoes" since I first saw them in the slipper bin at Target (why do I feel like Mrs. Roper after saying that?). Anyways they're on sale this week for $15! I promise to wear them inside and out, every day, all winter. So far I've been good to my word.

ps. Rob HATES them; that makes me like them just a little bit more!

A few more pics for your Harvest Festival and/or Otto-lovin' enjoyment...


Oh, and mark your calendars! It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown airs on Thursday, 10/28 at 7pm (at least in AZ it's 7pm). We'll be ringing in the holiday season that night with some close friends, a very informal pasta night, and letting 3 toddlers (Otto included) watch the special for the first time. It will be Otto's first time watching TV!

Ok so I have a lot of favorite things about this post...but my MOST favorite thing is that you have a blog label called "Goat Butts". phaha! We went to Agua Linda Farm last year..Nathalia LOVED it! So fun!

Lindsey Muth said...

Linsay! Yay, I've missed you! Agua Linda was so much fun! So glad you appreciate the goat butt label, haha! I'm gonna go Twitter stalk you now, hope you're back! xo

Ok the horse photo is to die for, I love your shoes and might have to get me a pair (!!), thanks for the heads up about The Great Pumpkin air time (I always miss it!), and I'm super impressed that this is Otto's first time watching TV?! Wow!

AND, does your husband have a Charlie Brown tattoo on his arm?? What is your tattoo??!

Thanks for the fun post!

P.S. There's something funny to me about seeing a pumpkin patch way down south there when I'm used to it with golden fall leaves up here in chilly Minnesota land. So glad you have your version though! : )

Busy Working Mama said...

Looks like you all had a wonderful time! Great pictures!

Fun, fun, fun!

Lindsey Muth said...

Hey Julie - you should definitely get the house shoes they are so cute and comfy and a steal at $15! It would warm my heart to know someone else is out there wearing them as shoes, haha! Thank you for your kind comments & yep, it's a Charlie Brown tattoo on his forearm. Mine, the one you can see in the pic, I like to call "the drunken line" because that's just what it is (so cool, ugh).

Oh, and I WISH we lived someplace with golden fall leaves! Wish, wish, wish! Hopefully this time next year we will... we'll find out in spring where rob get into school (crossing fingers for a few locations, all of them with weather).

@Busy & @Drench thank you guys too for the nice comments! <3

Alana De Leon-Lott said...

Looks like fun! I am so glad you guys had a good day.
The picture on the horse and the one of O and his grandparents is so sweet! And of course your family picture is fantastic!
Good family fun day!
xoxo

Lindsey Muth said...

Thx, Alana! XOXOXOXO!

Looks like you guys had a blast!

Otto is SO adorable!

Am I a horrible mother because my children (9 & 4) have never seen It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown? Wait...don't answer that.

We did a pumpkin patch (up here in the golden/red/orange leaves Minnesota area) last weekend where we came home with a 228 pound haul of pumpkins...and then carved them all up day before yesterday.

My fave part of this post was the line: I've been drooling over these "house shoes" since I first saw them in the slipper bin at Target...

I giggled myself silly about that...and then committed to see if my Target carries them.

Lindsey Muth said...

Kirsten, I am SHOCKED & APPALLED that your kiddos haven't seen the Great Pumpkin! This may be the only time in my life I'll ever say this, but as a good parent you must put your children in front of the tv! ::Cringe:: For reals though, it's a gem of pop culture, with sweetness, humor and heart! You now have plans for thursday night :)

Oh, and check your local Target slipper bin! These shoes are everything I imagined and more - so comfy & I feel like a sorority girl in em - all I need is a pair of "Pink" boxers & a bottle of peroxide (and boobs) and I could pass! haha! XO

Kerri said...

Love the new shoes, incredibly hip :) Your dedication of wearing yours everywhere makes shoe lovers proud! Thanks for including the air date/time of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, it's a classic!

He is SO cute and getting SO big!

I needed you the other day because the Three's Co theme song got stuck in my head randomly...so I started singing it to Joe and he didn't KNOW it! Blasphemy, I know.

Sweet Harper said...

Or is it blaspheme? You get the point.

monkey-toes said...

you guys are the CUTEST!!! Otto is the most adorable - he totally looks like my O might look when he is almost 2. CRAZY, right?

And that pic of Ot on the horse reeks of pure RAW equestrian talent. I'm amazed and in AWE!

Lindsey Muth said...

Thanks you guys! I love that all the moms stand behind my decision to wear house slippers as shoes <3

Tracy, Joe didn't know the "come and knock on my door..." song? Total blashpheme blasphemy!

Haha, Jenny, I think that whenever I see little Oscar. They could be bros! And would be the CUTEST BROS EVER!!!
