Pumpkin Patch

Boy...I am just going to make it in here with our Pumpkin Patch Hayride pictures! Tomorrow is the end of the month!! I wanted to do this earlier in the week but I was one sick gal. Figures...right? Well, I am just happy it was me and not the kids and that I am going to have time to recover before I leave for Disney!! Anyways, Edmund and I booked a hayride and invited some friends along for a little adventure. It was a beautiful but chilly autumn day...early afternoon...say 11 am...and very bright out. A perfect day for this kind of event!!!

They had this cute little tractor for pictures....all the kids loved climbing all over it!!!

We boarded our hay-filled trailer and set off for the unknown!!!
After about 20 minutes, we stopped in the middle of a field and got out. We had to hunt for pumpkins!!!!! Lots were still green but eventually we found some pretty orange ones!!!

Then we boarded up again and set off again!!!!

We arrived back after about a 45 minute trip~So fun to laugh and talk and just enjoy being outside!! I think I over-dressed cause I wore my heavy winter coat....I think I would have been fine in my fleece but ohhh well. The kids had a grand time!
The girls help "organize" pumpkins while we were waiting...its so funny to watch them think up a game and explain the rules to each other then play it out. They do it all the time...Devon even righted the overturned buckets of flowers!
Here's my favorite picture of the day....all the kids and their pumpkins out in the field!!!
So, I don't know if you noticed in the pics of the hayride but Sarah got her hair cut for Disney and she even got a few highlights. She was super excited!

Speaking of finished up sewing for Disney last weekend!!! Yaaaa!!! I made a sleeping beauty tee for Brooklyn to wear with her pink petti in case we run into Aurora in MK or Epcot. I realized we had left her out and we love her too so I was lucky to have a cutie applique by Heather to do a shirt with.

We have school pictures to share!!!

And lastly, the weather cooperated so nicely last weekend that we were able to go on a little treasure hunt on the beach. I think I mentioned about Lime Ricky World....well they had one last party and the kids participated in all the fun! This time it was a Captain Kid Treasure Hunt.

So the next installment will be chalk full of vacation pics I hope!! My husband called to tell me they had an "interesting" flight to Florida with tarmack wait-times of 45+ minutes. Uggggg.. he is NOT a happy camper. Poor guy. But they made it there safe and sound! Hopefully everything will go smoothly until I get there...please send pixie dust their way!!!

OK everyone have a safe and happy weekend! "Talk" to you soon!! God Bless!!!
