Bates Nut Farm, California

Welcome to Bates Nut Farm, 1,000,000 degrees
Ancient Chinese Beard of Cotton Candy
Ever waved her little hand off at all the animals
This guy had a crush on me. His Flock Of Seagulls hair had me on my knees.
Did I mention it was a bagillion degrees? Lacking a back up outfit, we slathered ee in sunscreen and took half her outfit off. I felt so bad for all the children in big hot furry costumes.
Lola did spin art and made a frisbee
The key to getting good family photos: Ask a flamingly gay man to take them.
Ever's little witchy hair clip sat jauntily as she explored the pumpkins
Lola couldn't find us, and she did what I've always taught her- found a woman with children and asked her help. Good job Lo!
Mr. Curry carries Lola's pumkin pick back to our truck. And it was two bagillion degrees by this time. All in all it was an awesome day. Lola had burgers, sprite, cotton candy AND ice cream, and didn't barf. The boys were sweet and fun and did not spend the whole time moaning or being too cool to hang. Ever was blissed out and talked to her balloon as she decided if it was more fun to hold it in her little sweaty hand or let it go. She held on.

That is one gorgeous baby. She looks a lot like her older sister, doesn't she?

Looks like a fun day and what a tribe of supermodels! Your entire family is beautiful and you look hot but happy. Ever is just adorable in those pumpkins. Sarah xxx

Maggie you look like you're ten years old.
How can you be the mother of that gorgeous family being that young and all?

Elizabeth said...

What fun and the photos are all so sweet. And you looked gorgeous! You forgot to mention that despite the heat you still looked beautiful!

Beautiful pix. I really dig the one of EE in the punkin patch. So cute, being a little punkin herself! :-)

Yay for Lola. That is so big. I tell Griffin that same thing. I was lost at the beach in Ft. Lauderdale once.. VERY scary! But the good news is that the system you set up works.
Good job.

Oh, I haven't been there in forever. You brought back so many memories for me.

Not to mention making memories with your beautiful family. I'm glad Dakota could go.

Maggie you are so pretty!!!

Oliver is waving too! Isn't it the cutest thing. I declare. I am in love with your whole family.

My mom just dropped off a salad spinner during their last visit and I'm thinking of using it for some spin art here at home--since I have been too lame to actually TAKE my family anywhere. :))
It looks like a gorgeous day and an awesome family photo came from it! I Love it, Maggie. Love it.
