Well, it certainly isn’t Tulum, Mexico, our destination of choice for our anniversary this year that had to be cancelled :(, but we are certainly making the most of this gorgeous day that we share with Mother Earth!

Two nights ago, I was scrolling through social media before bed and was stopped in my tracks by my favorite farm that’s located about an hour outside of Tampa, Sweetfields Farm.  I saw that they were having a U Pick event in their sunflower fields from 10AM to 1PM for Earth Day, and I knew immediately that it was the perfect thing for us to do as a family to get us out of the house for a little bit.

It was magical.

 We got there 15 minutes before they opened so we were some of the first ones in.  They made sure that they limited the amount of people could come in and when we left the line was pretty long, so I’m glad we got there when we did.  You could spend as much time as you wanted, there was no rush, and everyone was allowed to pick 3 sunflowers each.  The boys absolutely loved it!

I’m so thankful we were able to do something different to celebrate our anniversary… I’m still not sure how Husband puts up with me year after year, but to say I’m the luckiest to have him would be an understatement.

I love you, Husband, and there is no one else I would rather be trapped inside (for our NINE year wedding anniversary) quarantining with than you. Xoxo.


Sweetfields Farm, 2018

We just love Sweetfields Farm!  This was our third year to go (previous trips are here and here), and each year, as the boys get a little bit older, they love it more and more!  I mean… what’s not to love about getting lost in corn mazes, feeding goats, rubber ducky races, and big bales of hay??? Enjoy the pictures, y’all!

Remember when we went to Sweetfields Farm last year?

In case you need a refresher, click here. :)

I absolutely LOVE this place.  The jury is still out as to whether Bennett likes it or not, but I know Remy had a great time!  Bennett is definitely testing us with his two-year-old tantrums and frustrations lately.  He is still learning to communicate what he wants and needs, and sometimes when he <<finally>> decides he is ready to enjoy a moment, everyone else is ready to move on to the next fun thing.  Being a new mom to a toddler is a tough thing.  I haven’t learned the best way to discipline my child yet, he pretty much dictates how things are going to roll… and sometimes this can be pretty embarrassing.  BUT we will get past this, and hopefully I can look back some day and say to myself, “you did a good job, mama!” HA! Hopefully…

Back to the subject at hand, Sweetfields!  This year the treehouse playgrounds were a BIG hit for Bennett.  He must have went up the steps and down the slides a hundred times!  He wanted nothing to do with the horseback riding, nor the tricycles, but the antique tractor was definitely a favorite again, as you can see from the pictures.  Remy enjoyed looking at all the animals & standing in the pumpkins.  Every day he becomes more animated and fun loving!

The weather was much nicer this year, we had a little breeze and it was slightly overcast.  I remember last year being pretty brutal with the heat.  We all enjoyed the fresh popped kettle corn again- so good!  And had some pretty awesome photo ops of course!  This farm is so much fun, and I’m hoping it becomes our little tradition every year!
