Farmland Adventures with Margaret

Miss Margaret had her first field trip the other day and she loved it!!  They got to take a 45 minute bus ride to a corn maze/pumpkin patch/petting zoo called Farmland Adventures. 
They requested that no younger siblings come along so Margaret had me all to herself. She loved that. 
Playing in a big corn box. 
On top of the hay mountain with her friends. 
Tunnel fun. 
Feeding the sheep and goats. 

We also got to go on a wagon ride and feed the cows tortillas. 
The cows came right up to the wagon and ate the tortilla out if your hand. 

Picture with my girl. 
Here she is with the whole class. Her teacher is so sweet and there's several sweet girls too. (One she went to Mothers Day out with when she was 1!)

Lucy likes to eat

Miss Lucy has been very interested in what we have been eating lately. Just watching every bite we take. So I decided to let her try some food. She's almost 5 months and I think that's the standard these days. (Though who really knows. It changes year to year.)

She tried cereal/oatmeal first. 
Then moved on to some veggies. Squash was a favorite and sweet potatoes were too. 

Carrots were tolerated. But green beans are the holy grail!  Those are a winner every time.

A few weeks ago, the girls' school had a PTA fundraiser 5K race/1 mile fun run called the Stampede. Lucy and I didn't run, but Mark and the girls all did the 1 mile. It was a rainy day but it held off until almost the end of the race. 

Here's Caroline with the ChicFilA cow. 

Here's the racers before the big event. 

These pictures were taken by the event organizers:

Pretty girls

People are constantly telling me how all my babies look the same. And I always say I just make the same recipe every time!  But seriously. Here's some proof that I basically keep having the same baby over and over. (In the looks dept. Not the temperament dept.!!!!)

These are all Caroline: 

And these are Margaret:

And here's Lucy:

There you have it, proof I have the 3 prettiest girls in the world!

We made it to the Washington County Fair last week. It was hot and humid so we skipped some animals. The smell plus the heat is a little much. The girls used to love the animals and not pay attention to the rides. Now they barely tolerate the animals and want to go straight to the rides. 

But first, we needed dinner and more importantly a DRINK!!
Then some rides 

Last year Caroline was too scared to ride this one. 

This is the little daredevil's 2nd year riding it. 

And Miss Lucy rode around in her carriage and didn't make a peep except for a moment of protest in the cattle barn. (And who can blame her for that?!)

Compare and contrast

For those who like to compare pictures (that would be me): here's a little compilation of all of Caroline's first days. 

3 months

Lucy Goosy turned 3 months on Tuesday. She is still sweet as candy. Except when she's screaming for reasons known only to her. Three months is supposed to be when colic starts winding down. And honestly it is. Very, very gradually. But we get longer glimpses of her as a happy baby girl and those are diamonds in the rough. An oasis in the Sahara. She coos and says "ah goo" a lot. So sweet. She recently learned to blow spit bubbles and is pretty proud of that. 
Not sure how much she weighs or how long she is until our next appt. but she seems to be staying more skinny like Caroline. As long as she's happy and healthy, I don't care what percentile she's in!!
Aren't the outtakes the best part?!
