I cannot believe that Autumn is here already and that our annual visit to the Pumpkin Patch has arrived! Yes, the leaves are changing color a bit, and yes the air is getting a slight bit cooler. But Pumpkin Patch time......?
But alas, it's true. We made our super fun and
The pumpkin patch we go to has expanded over the years and really had so much more to offer this year than last even! And I laugh, because our little group seems to have expanded for this annual gathering as well!
And what a wonderful group it is, the kids just love to get together, with the older kids keeping a watchful eye on the youngsters and the middle kids finding new pals each gathering. Simone & Sammy have found such great friends and role models. I just can't say enough about how special this great group really is for our kids!
Okay, okay...on to the photos!
I caught my two in a few pictures...such cuties!
And then the pals came and they were all just off to play!
Love this one of the "older girls". They are such great pals!
We all took our hay ride over to "pick" our own pumpkins. Sammy was in his own little tractor heaven for this. All I've heard all week since is "Sammy ride red tractor"! We all had fun on the ride and out in the dusty field picking out our prize gourds.
Oh. So, I snapped the photo below for a reason. You can't see too well but the hair on these folks was just a rainbow, and they had piercings on every imaginable visible part and tattoos galore. Which is all just fine. I have no problem with any of that. But I was cracking up because as we all got off the hay ride this family just stopped and open mouth stared at us. And in "normal" life I'd possibly be staring at them - funny how that works huh!
And we got a family photo...yay!
And a group photo!!!
And another fun hayride back to the corn maze!
Sammy & Adam went on a tractor ride. Probably *almost* the highlight of Sammy's whole day. (There was a petting with bunnies and pony's and goats that played...sooooo I say toss up).
And this is just too adorable of the kids. Julie truly captured such a cute moment...The boys all in their own little mischievousness, Simone fawning over baby O with Sweet Sis O looking on protectively-and with her arm in the stroller around her brother.
So Happy Autumn Days to you. Enjoy these days of Indian Summer while it lasts for surely the cold winter winds will be here soon!
