Heather Hill Gardens

We're back in VA again!  This week, I wanted to take Chloe to one of the region's many little fall play areas.  We really do have a lot of nice ones around here, it's very lucky.  We even have one quite literally across the street: Burke Nursery's Pumpkin Playground.  I will take Chloe here this year at some point I think, however, we might just stay in the little store area.  It looks like great fun from the outside, but I think it might be a little pricey for what she'd get out of it. 

Last year, I found a cute little fall festival at Heather Hill Gardens with a much more economical price, and it was perfect for toddlers!  At only $5 a person (under two is free), the festival offers tons of pumpkins, chickens (walking around!), goats, bunnies, walking toys for the little ones, a sandbox, a bouce house, tunnels, and a big slide.  We headed over with our friend Isobel and her mom Laura the other afternoon and had a great time.  We even got to pick out a little pumpkin at the end of our visit.  I think it'll be a worth another trip or two back this month!

Hello Mr. Goat!

Beep beep!

The moonbouce was empty, so we tried it out, and it was a bit hit.

So happy to see your review of Heather Hill with pictures! I think my 2 year old would love it, and we'll try to go this week when "big brother" is in preschool.
