Belkin Family Lookout Farm

Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of co-hosting (my very first) family blogger event with Belkin Family Lookout Farm in Natick, MA.  Located on 180 acres, this farm is one of the oldest continuously working farms in America!  Less than 20 miles from Boston!

Who knew?!

Chock-full of sights and activities for children of all ages, the farm promotes healthy outdoor family fun with its train rides, hay pyramid, a seasonal petting zoo, caterpillar rides (a big hit with our group!), moon bounce and much more.
And here in New England, picking your own fruit is a TRADITION.  Summer season at the farm starts with pick-your-own strawberries and cherries, followed by peaches, plums and nectarines.  Soon the Asian pears and apple trees are ripe for pickin' as well!

And with fall, comes pumpkins.  This farm dedicates over 10 acres that produce more than 25,000 pumpkins each year!

I am so thankful to the ladies who graciously accepted my invitation for a morning on the farm with their children.  It was hot hot hot out that day!  But the farm's setting was a serene escape from the hecticness of our everyday lives...even if we were schweating.
My good friend Jodie came along as my personal paparazzi to take pictures of the event.  All the photos posted here are courtesy of her fabulousness. (Thanks, Jodie!)

It was special for Baby because he got to come with me all by himself.  Brother-free.

Thank you to Belkin Family Lookout Farm (especially Josh and Nina!) for a fun morning! Find them on Facebook and Twitter.

And a big grateful thank you to my blogger friends for attending:  Heather, Niri, Kate, Charlene, Christina and Christy.
