Last night we made our first trip (of 8 billion between now and Halloween) to the pumpkin patch that is near our home. There are just a few in this area worth taking the kiddos to, and this patch has been around for 10+ years. I had yet to actually come to this pumpkin patch before we brought the girls for their first patch experience three whole October’s ago. SO hard to wrap my head around that!
While we would love to come early in the day- it is still pretty warm out. Once it hits about 4-5pm in the afternoon it gets comfortable and is the perfect timing for a visit to a practically empty pumpkin patch.
Every time we bring the girls to something we did in the years past, its like an entirely new experience for them all together. I kind of love that! We have hit an age this year that they have really come to understand a lot, absorb a lot, and remember everything! I am so excited for this season of life with my little big girls.
ONE thing is for sure.. photos are getting harder to capture. Parker and Jolie have become very independent and love the ‘control’ of making up their own mind.
“MOM! Nnnoo picture taking! No, Mom!”
..and then the sillies come out and the picture taking requests are on!
Parker. The most hard-headed child yet the greatest amount of fun in my day.
She is F U N N Y!
My sweet Jolie is always showing her pearly white grin:)
I’ll just leave this right here.
A baby. On a pumpkin.
The cutest thing you have ever seen, right??
Now.. If I would have put her inside that pumpkin..
My whole life right there, ya’ll.
Time for picking a pumpkin!
These are pretty pricy compared to what I can get at Walmart or Target, so we usually only come home with one (or none) at best when we visit.
Th pumpkin patch experience wouldn’t be complete without the house made of pumpkins, a hay maze and bounce houses. Bounce houses have quickly become the way to Parker and Jolie’s heart. This was a pretty big slide and the twins did AWESOME -up and down they would go, getting more brave with each trip down..and eventually nearly nose diving to get themselves a head start.
While the twins played, Baker Bree watched from the sidelines- cooing and cawing at everyting + everyone within ear shot.
Its hard to believe we get to do all this again this year – it makes me SO excited! I go back to work next week an all I can think about is, how many times can we squeeze more trips to the patch before I go back??
Happy almost weekend, ladies!
