Here we are at Vala's Pumpkin Patch. Justin's work has their Fall party here. We love it! There never seems to be enough time to accomplish all of the many fun activities. This year we decided to do more than we ever have before. I guess the fact that our kids are older and more tolerable of multiple activies helped. And there were NO STROLLERS to push. This picture was taken after roasting Hot Dogs over the fire and several s'mores. YUMMY :)
The Kids drove tractors.
We took a train ride all around the farm. Jenna got to toot the horn when we were all done. She thought that was pretty cool.
This year we discovered a "Trampoline". It was so much fun. The kids would have stayed there longer if we would have had time. There were two separate tramps. One for kids 1-6 and one for the older kids. I think the parents had as much fun as the kids did. I am sure we'll head here first next year.
This was my favorite...The Peddle Cars. You could ride up to four on a car. Justin took the girls and Tyler and I drove one. Well, Tyler handled the steering and I was the speed. Since my steering wheel was only for show, I decided to speed us up and try to catch up to Justin and the girls. I guess I should have taken into account my 8 year olds inexperience with driving. We hit the retaining wall as we turned a corner...oops!! We had a blast!
The Hayrack Ride
We met up with some friends who invited us to go with them on the Hayrack ride. This was some ride. It took us way up in the pumpkin fields. After lots of dust and bumps, we made it to the top. Here people can get out and pick their own pumpkin from the field. We came home with three big pumkins and three itty bitty ones. You can guess who picked those out... Megan.
In this picture: Tyler, Cory, Megan, Jenna and Kaylie
4/21/09 Megan: She was sitting on my feet and requesting I walk around with her. After a few steps she says, "Can you handle it?" I laughed. She is so funny!
4/14/09 Megan: When I asked Megan what she wanted for her birthday dinner, she stated, "Cake, ice cream and cup cakes." I explained that that was dessert and asked what else. She said, "Cottage Cheese!"
11/3/08 Megan: "Don't keep asking me ok? Just zip your lips!"
10/26/08: Megan says, "When I get big like Daddy, then I'll be boss!"
Last Night (10/9/08) I was giving flu shots at the grocery store by my house and this cute little African American girl about 3 comes driving by in one of those car/carts. She says, "HI!!" I smile back at her and say, "Hello." Then she says, "What you lookin' at?" I couldn't believe it. I was in shock. Kids hear all we say and repeat them at some of the worst times. Hmmm...
Megan's latest thing to say or ask is, "Mommy where I going afer (no T) nigh nigh?" Then I tell her and she follows it up with "Where I going afer that?" She is so interested in our everyday plans.
I am picking a "sore/pimple" on Megan's arm and she says, "That is bird poop!"
Megan: (she is supposed to be asleep) "Mommy my leg hurts and it not tired. It wants to stay up."
