dewberry farm

this past weekend, our family went to dewberry farm, which is in brookshire, tx.
in case you didn't know, the above video is what a donkey sounds like. when asked if i was going to post this, i said to my beloved better half, "you bet your sweet bootie i'm postin' it."

it was so much fun, except for the hay-fever it induced. i have been sneezing and wheezing ever since. gabe loved the go-carts, and monkey loved eating snacks while watching his big bro on the go-carts. it was a win-win situation.

this is uncle james with gabe. at dewberry farm, there is a huge fort, slides, a jumpy-pillow-bouncey-house-thingy, a petting zoo, a black hole (i know...no need to go into the outer galaxy to find one. just come here.)

my personal favorite is the big pile of hay that children jump off of, swinging from ropes. we don't have a pic, but use your imagination. picture some hay...and kids. there you go.

there's also a pumpkin patch and a corn maze.

we had an awesome time. it's hard with kids of different ages to let each one feel like they got to do everything they wanted, but monkey was pretty easy, so it was mainly just letting gabe run wild.

if you're ever in this part of texas, stop by! it's huge and there's plenty to do.

here's my little rooster. he's pretty adorable. even though he looks like he might eat someone. grrr.

have a happy halloween peeps. ;)
get it? peeps...like the chicken? and my kid is a rooster? ha. don't ignore the wittiness.


  1. I came across your blog on facebook! Looks like a ton of fun! WE have been looking for a place like that near Austin but couldn't find one. I will have to put it on the list for next year. Will be praying for the situation with Miggs.

  2. You ought to enter some of your photos in our photo contest. Thanks for the kind comments about the Farm. I love to hear about visitors having a good time. Hope you make it a Family Tradition.
