Goebbert's Farm

Friday the boys and I spent the afternoon at Goebbert's Farm in South Barrington.

About five minutes in to our drive to the farm it started raining, just our luck, right? Fortunately the rain stopped by the time we got to the farm and held off until after we left.






We walked around the farm for a bit before stopping in their little cafe. We had already eaten lunch so we decided to share a pumpkin cookie.




After we finished the cookie we went back out to the pumpkin patch and selected a few gourds along with a small pumpkin for Harry and a big pumpkin for Ant and me.


I don't think we'll get around to carving them this year but we'll probably paint them. On our way to pay we made a stop inside the little store and picked up a loaf of apple pie bread and a half gallon of apple cider.


Doesn't the bread look amazing? After dinner Friday night we decided to enjoy some for dessert. Well, turns out we picked a loaf that was packaged with two flies in it. Gross! Needless to say we didn't end up eating it and it was a waste of $9. Bummer.

We had a lovely afternoon at the farm. I just wish it had been a bit warmer out! On our way home we drove by the weirdest store sign I've ever seen.

What is that?!?!? We've driven past this cleaners a few times and I've always wanted to take a picture of their backwards sign. The store is located on Irving Park Road at Route 59 if you're interested in seeing it for yourself.


The pumpkin patch take's a lot out of a person, I tell ya! Here's what I did with the little gourds we purchased.


Harry's 11 month update should be up later today. Apparently I'm in denial about my baby getting older and I thought yesterday was the 5th.
