Pumpkins, Bacon, and Sally

This weekend was a lot of fun. I’ve never been to a pumpkin patch before, so I thought it was about time. The weather was perfect, and so much to do and see. It was called Vertuccio Farms down in Gilbert – only about 10 minutes from my house and I never knew it. Best of all? I think I found the love of my life.

So many things! Where to start?

The pumpkin patch of course! So many choices!

Wee-Be pumpkins were oh so cute, and just my size.

I had no idea a pumpkin was a pretty flower before it was a pumpkin!


After the pumpkin patch, I learned how to milk a cow.

A whopping 6 inches tall.

The corn maze looked so fun, but I was so scared I was gonna get lost!

Here I go…

This doesn’t seem so bad…


Ahh so pretty.

Well, I thought I was safe once I found my way out of the maze… maybe not.


Dirty bacon.

Hungry bacon.

Wet bacon… bacon swims?

Moo moo wasn’t quite as dirty… she didn’t look very milkable though like the other one.

He was really loud.

Is this really what I think it is?


Just when I thought my fellow bunny sighting couldn’t be topped, I met Sally. Sally was the cutest, friendliest, softest donkey (and only) I’ve ever met. I think I love you, Sally.


Beer, Brats, and Bunny

Well Bunny Fans, it’s my favorite time of the year – Fall. This means many things… colonial-wear, amazing scented candles, pumpkin spiced lattes (this bunny likes it on ice… I know, I’m weird, but it’s Arizona!), and most of all – Oktoberfest. Which equals two things: beer and brats.

Brat Haus – a delicious year round treat for me, but extra special in the Fall.


They have the best selection of beer in my hood.

And a couple extra special choices for this month! Check it this big, tall, yummy Hefeweizen.

This big boy was delish too.

Now the important part – what to eat?!

I started off with a delicious house-baked soft pretzel, with cheese for dippin’!

I’m sorry, but I have no idea why this photo makes this brat look… unappetizing. But it’s the only one I got, so you will just have to pretend and take it from me – it’s incredible. A spicy bratwurst topped with root beer soaked onions. YEP, ROOT BEER SOAKED ONIONS.

I had a little too much to drink, so they gave me a lift in their company car. Just my size!
