Hi there! A few weeks ago, Brett and I took Bailey to Mizzou's South Research Farm for a little fall festival they were hosting. It was a perfectly overcast and cool day, and Bailey loved running around looking at cows, sunflower fields, fire trucks (random, I know), and a huge bubble machine. They had a wine tasting for the adults, courtesy of our local vineyards, and corn mazes galore. Bailey took her first hayride up to a barn to see more animals, and she definitely was curious as to what the tractors were. See below for more pics!
At one point, Bailey just plopped down in a pile of gravel, refusing to walk any further for a moment. I took the opportunity to snap a picture of our shoes, since we were both wearing black boots and she wasn't moving her legs for once.
Columbia is surrounded by a few vineyards, and they brought out their wine for a small tasting at the farm. I tried a new red from Les Bourgeois and it was quite tasty!
Like I said, Bailey really enjoyed getting to run in open fields. We just walked along behind her, making sure she didn't run into anyone. She definitely tumbled a couple of times, but that never really phases her.
They had some local food trucks there as well. We had some delicious pulled pork sandwiches and they hit the spot after running around all afternoon.
Thanks for reading, and have a great Monday!
