Don’t you love when weekends go well? I do! I do!
Even though it’s
winter fall here and unseasonably cold, we braved the chilly weather and ventured out for some fun on Saturday. Once the glorious sun peeked it’s head out, it was actually a beautiful day to spend with my wonderful boys!
We made our way to the pumpkin patch in a small town 20 miles or so from the house. Gees, we would have thought we were going to the moon with all the complaining and horsing around in the backseat :)
Can we watch a movie? NO
Can we have a snack? NO
Are we there yet? NO
Are we almost there? NO
Three minutes later…..Are we there yet? NO
We’re so spoiled because we live SO close to everything. More than 5 minutes in the car is apparently FOREVER to the boys. It’s ok, nothing a little music turned up won’t fix :)
The pumpkin patch here is fantastic. There is a ton of stuff to do for the kids. Check it out:
We went down a huge slide
This picture cracks me up! He was so proud he found a nice spot for his finger…
The kids thought the magician rocked.
There is a hayride that takes you out to the field to pick your own pumpkins right off the vine. I made someone take our picture. It always cracks me up when I hand them my camera and they get a look of horror on their face…like, “What am I suppose to do with this?!”
The pumpkins are still somewhat green due to the lack of sunshine around here lately. Apparently winter is being a little pushy this year and fall has taken a backseat. Hopefully to be see again soon!
I tried to get a picture of the boys with our loot. As usual this is what ensued…..
We had a great time!
Here is the boys standing at the base of one.See them there????? At the bottom?? Isn’t that amazing? There are 100’s of them in the fields. It was very cool. The boys loved it!
We hung out at home the rest of the night and let the
chaos fun continue.
And who can’t get enough of this?!?!
BONUS: no naps + lots of rough housing= early bedtimes!
On Sunday we had a relaxing afternoon at home. It’s great now that the boys are older….we don’t have to rush home to get naps. We can have a nice lunch and hang out. While Cam and Nol were sleeping, me and Gavin made cupcakes. Yum! I think they boys liked them too!
Then it’s a movie and bedtime. Here’s to a wonderful weekend!
