I am so proud of myself today so I just had to share!
Today Ellie and I packed a picnic and took off to go pumpkin picking. It doesn’t sound all that amazing but I had never been to the farm itself (or know anyone who has for that matter) and it was a good 20-30 minutes away on the motorway. Still not sounding like a big deal? Well I’ve never really had the confidence to go far on my own with Ellie, especially to a brand new place without any friends or family reviews, but we did it!
Ellie had an amazing day; looking at all the pumpkins in the field, inspecting them and finding which one she wanted to take home.
An added bonus was the sweet corn! One of Ellie’s favourite foods is sweetcorn and she was able to pick her own corn on the cob from the maize. Again, she loved having the freedom to wander through, choose which she wanted and pull it from the maize.
We had our picnic then played on the park. I’m so proud of myself and it makes me happy that I now know I have the confidence and ability to step outside my comfort zone and give my girl the experiences she deserves. Thank you Kenyon Hall Farm for a lovely day.
