Colorado Adventures.

Well, I’m off on a new adventure once again and this time I’m out in Frutia, Colorado working at the Moon Farm Pumpkin Patch with my family! I have been in Colorado for the past two weeks and before arriving to Fruita I took a trip to Denver and Colorado Springs to explore and see my good friends!

I think about how I miss Denver all the time so I literally cried when I drove in. I was so excited to be in my favorite city and spend time with some friends who are so dear to my heart. My Denver trip involved the Botanical Gardens and the Denver Art Museum. I always love going to the DAM, they also have some great exhibits right now that are very inspiring. I encourage everyone to take a solo trip to their local art museum!

Outside of Denver I also took a day trip with my good friend, Jayce to Georgetown! Georgetown is this great little quaint place with history, shops and cafes. We also had to have some ice cream (obviously) I had sour cream poppyseed with a scoop of green tea! It sounds terrible but it was so wonderful. The best part of our Georgetown trip though? The train ride! I’ve never been on a train and it was the perfect thing to do to kick off the season of fall! The colors were beautiful and although it rained on us and became rather cold, we saw an amazing rainbow! If I could paint, that would be an image to paint.

In Colorado Springs my Colorado BFF McKenzie and I went to Garden of the Gods and then onto Manitou Springs. Manitou is also a small town filled with amazing shops and also a penny arcade with adorable vintage games to play on. We ended the day eating Ramen on Main Street in CO Springs, yum!

After Colorado Springs I headed to Fruita where I will be for the next month to help work at the Pumpkin Patch! I was born in Grand Junction and we lived at Moon Farm when I was a baby so it’s exciting to get sometime to explore my native land.

I can’t wait to update you on all of the Moon Farm Pumpkin Patch shenanigans!

A place called Moon Farm || Fruita, Colorado

Whenever I ask somebody in Colorado if they’ve ever been to Moon Farm I am SHOCKED when they say no and exclaim “What? It’s only the happiest place on earth!” Moon Farm is a farm located in Fruita, Colorado and it’s full of magic. Playhouses to explore, baby bunnies and other animals, peacocks, and wonderful vintage and historical findings.
A little history about my family and Moon Farm. My grandfather’s sister, Ella, married a man name Wallace Moon. They moved to Colorado from Utah in the early 1950’s. They bought a large farm and this is where everything started. They were a creative couple between my uncle Wallace building wonderful things and my Aunt Ella teaching dance. Throughout their years together they adopted 7 children. The family started building tree houses and playhouses and that’s how Moon Farm began! School started coming out for field trips and then it turned into summer camps. Moon Farm is now a place to explore and open for a pumpkin patch during the fall.
I lived at Moon Farm when I was very young. Probably about 2 years old. Although I don’t remember this we have many photographs to show the great time we spent there. I lived in what I probably thought was a complete amusement park, what a time to be alive. I do remember the summer camp I went to while visiting Colorado to see my grandparents. I remember taking the Moon Farm bus and chasing the train while others yelled “CATCH THE TRAIN!”
There’s so many little playhouses to look around including a school (my favorite growing up) church, Mother Goose’s home, little old lady who lived in a shoe, a pyramid, castle, and so much more. Each little home has vintage and historical finds in them. There’s a house full of  old bears,  one of carousel horses,  and their most recent addition….a barbie house! They had a a huge donation collectible barbies! Here is a link to all of their homes to explore. You cannot forget their jungle of stuffed animals too.
There’s a bunny pen where you can go in and cuddle with all the bunnies. Seriously. I told you this was the happiest place on earth.They also have peacocks that roam around the area who like to show off their feathers from time to time. A couple weeks ago I stopped by Moon Farm to see my family and what was new at moon farm. Here are some photographs from my visit!
If you have a chance to stop by Moon Farm in Fruita, Colorado I highly recommend it!
