Happy October everyone. I love the fall. It means football, hot tea, fires, cozy sweaters and pumpkins. I am totally excited because this year Ocoee is older and can appreciate the festivities. Here below are photos from Grandma's visit for Ocoee's birthday and our visit to the Palmer Reindeer Farm.
Kids in Alaska are so lucky, not only do we have the North Pole ( a city further north than Anchorage; not the actual north pole), but we also have reindeers. The farm does not make reindeer dogs so these reindeers live for kids petting them and free carrots.
The day we went was cloudy and the wind storms lately had taken most of the leaves away so it was not as pretty as it can be, but we found time for pictures anyway......always time for a photo op right?
So a disclaimer, the farm does not grow the pumpkins......this was pretty lame I thought, but we bought one anyways. Kinda funny how they scattered the pumpkins in the field like they were growing. I don't think Ocoee minded though.
We baked the pumpkin and pureed it for Ocoee's food. We mix it with yogurt and cottage cheese which she devours. She has eaten so much in the last few weeks I really thought she might get a little orange tint.....but heck a girl takes color anyway she can get it in Alaska.
