A Trip to Boyd's Orchard

This weekend we took our first family trip to Boyd's Orchard. It was a blast!! Ivy had so many "firsts" at the orchard. Hope you enjoy taking a look at her exciting day :)

Unc, Esie, and Ivy had so much fun together. Ivy even said both of their names. All day yesterday Ivy was walking around saying "UUUUUUUHHNC" (on volume 10).

Happy Birthday, Baba! Thanks for letting us celebrate at the orchard. I had so much fun!

I even got to ride the train. The conductor was frightening but once he was out of sight I was so excited!! I liked to wave at everyone as we rode through the orchard. Pops, thank you for capturing some really good train pics!

I went on a pony ride with Unc. And let me tell you that horse did not enjoy Unc riding on his back! Unc, we love the western "howdy partner" you gave to the camera.

I saw all the baby animals. My favorite were the goats and my mommy thought the pigs were disgusting. Ewwwwww... those stinky pigs!

I picked out the perfect pumpkin for our front porch.

I saw all the pretty mums.

I spent some quality time with Aunt Esie.

I ate my first bites of fried apple pie..... Yummmm!

I took a family picture in the giant chair!!

We had a great time at Boyd's orchard. I think we will have to take Ivy at least one more time this year. My mind is running wild with all the memories and I have looked at our pictures at least 100 times. This is one of my favorite things that we have done as a family. YAY for fall, maybe it is finally here!! :)


  1. sweet corny wave on my part...i've been thinking about Ivy's bashful look, whatever sound she made after running into the table, her quick switch from excitement to anger when i failed at bubble blowing, and her inability to stand once her weariness set in non-stop since we left. i love that little girl.

  2. what a fun day!!! those pictures are great.

    and you are some brave souls for getting tattoos from below. i would faint! haha. that is neat about your mom's tattoo though. :)

  3. Yay for Orchards! We go to Evan's Orchard quite frequently...I just love it. Unfortunately, Bailey is afraid of the pumpkins for some reason, so no cute pics with her near them. Although she loves her baby pumpkin :) Ivy is adorable and it looks like she had a really good time!

  4. How fun!! I need to check and see if we have anything similar here in UT! You have such a cute little family!


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
