Our Annual Harvest Trek to Avila Barn

Avila Valley Barn is one of our favorite autumn outings. They sell local fresh produce; freshly baked scones, pies, muffins, and bread; homemade ice cream and candy; roasted corn on the cob; ice-cold apple cider with a squeeze of lime; and gift items galore. There are also hayrides, hay mazes, and farm animals to pet and feed. A truly fun old-fashioned family outing.

Papa and Diego feeding the ponies.

Isn't he cute? I know his eye "makeup" don't look manly,

but.......he is cute!

Diego isn't quite sure what to do with all that hay.

Look closely and you can see that he does think
falling into a pile of hay is fun!

The tractor and trailer coming back to give us our turn

to take a ride to the pumpkin patch.

Our turn!

Leaving Mommy and Donovan behind.

I like this picture with the mommies and their babies in slings and wraps.

Pumpkins almost as far as you can see!

After we left the Barn, we went on to Arroyo Grande. I wanted to visit the Susan Branch store there. It has been one of my favorite places and I needed a bit of inspiration. Can you imagine how dismayed Sarah and I were when we got there and it had disappeared? We asked next door at another favorite little store and found out that it had closed down about a month ago! I'm going to miss it!

So, instead we had fun in another way! As we walked by this cute alley, I thought it would make a pretty picture. Of course, Sarah and Diego wanted in the picture.....

Sarah proving she's still got it!
