Our Day in Arcadia

Scott had Sunday off, so we thought we'd have a nice family day. We went out to Pops in Arcadia for breakfast. It's sort of a diner/gas station with over 500 different kinds of bottled soda. It's pretty neat. Afterward we came back home for a while so that Finn could nap. Sharyn came over and brought ANOTHER slide for Finn (This makes a grand total of 4 in the backyard). However, this one is a bit bigger than the others. It took the 3 of us at least half an hour or so to put it together, but it was well worth it. Finn got a little "surprise" when he woke up from his nap!

All of us then trucked it back out to Arcadia to go to the Parkhurst Watermelon Patch. It had rained the night before, so it was a wee bit cooler than usual, so we thought it would be fun! The Patch is kind of out in the country and they had a hay ride (I should have thought that one through before getting my pregnant butt on a bouncy trailer!), a petting zoo (Finn's favorite), giant sprinkler, tire swing, and hay fort. They also had pick-your-own veggies and watermelon, but we didn't partake. Finn absolutely LOVED the petting zoo. I think his favorite was the goats. He just kept saying "Hi goats!" over and over. And he really loved feeding the pig and horses. We ran out of feed, so he just kept trying to give them hay. We will definitely be going back in the fall for their pumpkin patch!


  1. I like the new slide and I see you got the storage building put together. It looks good. We will definitely be going to the watermelon festival. I hope we have another cool day soon.

  2. That sounds like a really fun day! I may have to check out the watermelon patch.
