in years past, our family has enjoyed a day of driving an hour or two away to cut down our christmas tree for that year. we did this in both seattle and california; so, last weekend, our plan was to find a tree farm in tennessee to do the same. we drove about an hour outside of nashville, with some of our favorite people, but, little did we know was that this tree farm is fairly new in the christmas tree business… only five years old. these types of trees only grow one foot a year, soooo, they had rows and rows of preettty little christmas trees.

regardless of the smaller trees, it was a fun day for all, and the kids loved chasing one another through the rows of trees. ottilie absolutely loved running, and running, and running, until we couldn’t see her, and would yell her name, “ott-i-lieeee!!” then hearing her sweet little voice yelling, she’d reply with, “uuttt (what)?!?!” it was adorable.

up by the lodge, the farm had some beautiful trees brought to them from northeast tennessee. i think they realized that most people coming to see them would not be looking for mini-trees, so they were sure to have some on hand that would suffice for their guests. we happened to be one of those guests, that wouldn’t be cutting a tree this year, but buying one at the lodge. it is a beautiful tree, and it was a great time for all playing around their farm.

we picnicked with thanksgiving turkey sandwiches, fruit, chips, and peppermint jo-jo’s; then the kids ran to the “treehouse” that was built for kids & adults to enjoy together. from swinging, to ziplines, tires swings and slides… it was a perfect way to burn off extra energy, play in the leaves and, for us grown-ups, be a kid again.
