#27 – Pumpkin patch

We’ve never picked our own pumpkin before, and I thought that it was the sort of family-friendly activity that screams to be made into a tradition, so on the list it went!  We met up with my cousin and her sweet boys over Thanksgiving and found some perfect pumpkins!

#99 – Horse drawn carriage or sleigh

On Thanksgiving weekend we hit up Andrew’s Scenic acres for some picture perfect Fall activities (a couple more to come!), and they happened to have these two adorable mini-horses (I checked, mini horses, not ponies) pulling a cart through the flower fields.  How could we pass it up?!  Henry and I got all the fun, while Adam took the photos.

#71 – Go to a lavender farm

We went to Terre Bleu lavender farm this weekend and it was so, so lovely.   Of course it smelled amazing, but it was also super peaceful and quiet, except for the hum of the bees from the apiary.


Details: Terre Bleu farm is located in Milton.  Hours and location can be found here.  In addition to the field, there is an apiary and small shop full of lavender goodies including soaps, honey, maple syrup, tea, etc.

#81 – Halton County Radial Railway Museum

While we were driving out to the country north of Milton, passing signs for the “Subway Museum”, Adam and I were wondering what we had got ourselves into.  This museum definitely made the weird list.  There are three vintage streetcars from different eras that are operational, and run in succession out to a loop that has a streetcar graveyard, plus one that’s been converted into an ice shop.  There’s a big barn housing subways, streetcars and rail cars throughout history. The staff are super enthusiastic and love the subject matter.

With a good dose of irony, we did have a lot of fun here, but we found it kind of pricey for what it was.  That being said, the other patrons who were there were clearly enthusiasts, and totally loved it, so to each his own, right?
