The day we broke into a tree farm

Well, "breaking in" is a strong word(s) for what we did.
We just went on a nice little "tire the munchkin out before nap walk,"
and happened to also take a walk inside
 (through the big tall gate)
of the tree farm. lol

As you can see we live out in the country,
on a very quiet road.

He's probably looking back thinking..
" Is my mom really letting me run this far ahead?!!"
AND as I look at it now...
I'm thinking the same thing!
Loving the new fall colors.

Ahhh.. Thank you baby.
A  weed flower for mama!

You fell & skinned your cute monkey knee.
I LOVE that mama's owie kisses REALLY do make everything ok.
I was happy to carry you the rest of the way.

We have arrived!
This was not a planned break in,
How could you be 2, & not want to open this gate?

This is just a tree farm. No one actually lives here.
So we just went to peak at a few baby Christmas trees

As we made it up the windy road, we came upon a magical land.
Ok. It was just a little hill, that over looked the entire farm.
BUT  the grass looked like strands of gold.
I'm not being dramatic, it was beautiful!
I might have to "take a walk" to the tree farm in the near future...
(for the love of photography. Of course)

You giggled as the wind blew the grass,
& tickled your monkey knees.

you counted the baby trees.
Apparently, there were 5?!!

Mama somehow worked her magic on the magical hill...
AND got monkey-man to SIT DOWN.
A magical miracle!

Criss Cross apple sauce.
You just learned how.
So cute!

We had such a beautiful day together little man.

 Again magical land powers.
How I got this guy to take a picture w/ me,
sit still,  & smile... Amazing.
Oh man, I love him.

Time to go home little one.
Thank you for the best day,
like ever,
like ALWAYS.

(if he only knew he was runing towards nap time! Lol)

So many sweet photos here - particularly love the one of your little one turning around to look at you and of him on the gate. And some very precious ones of the two of you. Hope he had a good nap after his venture.
