field trip :: southlands farm

Southlands-1Southlands-2Southlands-3Southlands-4Southlands-5I have lived in or near Kerrisdale for most of my life and have never visited Southlands Farm until today! A little oasis of greenery filled with ponies, chickens, and fruit trees; Southlands is a working farm that hosts workshops, a CSA, camps, and horseback riding. My mom made Elliot a pumpkin hat and with the sunny weather, we decided to find ourselves a pumpkin patch. Elliot avoided napping all morning and then fell asleep in the car, so was a bit grumpy / groggy during our quick visit. Apparently, we had just missed a school group of 30 kids visiting the farm and another 30 was set to arrive in the next hour so we had the entire place to ourselves!
