We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Harvest Festival

We made our yearly visit to a local Harvest Festival held at Miller's Farm in Colorado today. We met up with some friends and had a fun and exhausting day. They have the typical corn maze, petting zoo, and straw bails to climb on but what makes Miller's farm unique is that you can pick your own vegetables. For $15 a person or $50 for a family of four (children 3 and under free) you get to enjoy all the activities plus a ride on the tractor pulled trailer to pick vegetables straight from the field (6, 10pound bags per person). When we first did this several years ago we were all about the experience, now we are also all about picking the best and max amount of vegetables possible to keep up with our growing family's appetite! Beats grocery store prices and the smiles on my kids' faces are priceless. As an added bonus, the owners of the farm are a adoptive family themselves. Check it out:

First pumpkin ever!

Were else can you slide down a giant pile off dirt in a laundry basket?

Asked me for the keys....

Nope mom did not climb to the top of the enormous straw pyramid.

In the petting zoo.

                                     I really thought we would be lost forever this time in the maze.

                                                       Bumpiest barrel train ride ever but still fun.
                                                      Yes those are snakes they are holding!

                                               My little man and his amazing gross motor skills.

Gee mom, these goats look like the ones in Ethiopia?

So proud of his cabbage on steroids.

So happy to help.

A very full van.
