My children believe that a farm is a place where thousands of people pay to go slide on giant slides, meander their way out of corn mazes, play with goats, take hay rides through haunted forests, and eat kettle corn. This sad fact is partly due to the amazing fall festivals around Northern Virginia. There are several in existence but this year we went to Cox Farms. It is certainly the biggest but it also has the most people and the greatest opportunity to lose a kid or two. Harley's favorite part was, not surprisingly the animals especially the goats. Nash liked the rope swing and Atley could ride on one of the 12 slides for forever. It was an exhausting afternoon, but well worth it when Harley Belle fell asleep at 6PM and slept until 7:30 the next morning.
