Pumpkin Patch

Every year we go to the same pumpkin patch with Matt's family.  It's the best pumpkin patch, so much stuff for the kids to do!  We were talking about how crazy and unpredictable the weather is here this time of the year.  A couple years ago we were sweating the entire time we were there, last year we were so cold and all bundled up with hats and mittens and this year is was almost 80 again.  (I prefer the warmer years!) :)  Here are a few (aka many) pictures from the day.

Braden was so in love with this kitty it was the most adorable thing ever.  There were all kinds of animals around and lots of puppies to hold too but all he wanted to do was play with this cute little kitty.  Too bad Matt is not a big cat fan (to put it nicely.)  Why can't they just stay this small and cute!?

Here is Alexa this year and last year.  How does that girl grow so fast?  I can't believe it!

What a great place to go! Alexa has gotten HUGE and all in just one year...holy tolidos!!! Braden looks like he had a blast...he is so cute!!

I'm so glad that we started this tradition. Olivia gets more and more excited each year to go with you guys. It will be exciting to add Masen and Baby #3 to the mix next year!!

THAT is crazy?!! Alexa grew a ton...but what a fun photo to have!

Where is that pumpkin patch? It looks like a blast! We went to one in Litchfield once (I think) that was awesome!!

I think we need to go again!

That looks like a total blast!!!! And his little chunky legs are cracking me up!

She has shot up! My word! Becca did that around that age(I think it was four inches in four months), but I don't have any pictures like that. SO fun that you do.
Everytime I see a picture of Braden I want to kiss those cheeks. He is too cute and looks like such a little boy already.

Wow! I love that growth chart. What a great idea! And, I can't believe how much Alexa grew in a year. What are you feeding that girl???? :)
The weather has been great, hasn't it? I'll take it!
I hear we're in for a cold and snowy least, that's what they're saying (whoever "they" are...).

So cute! The pic of your hubby and Braden in the corn is my fav, great capture.

Yeah, my hubby isn't a cat fan either, but both my boys love the cat at our in home day care. Someday maybe...

That really is an awesome pumpkin patch!

I want to go to one sooo badly this year but unfortunately my husband isn't as excited about that idea. I think I'm going to have to break down and take the kids one day next week.

We used to go to a pumpkin patch just like this when mine were little...with a hayride and all. Such sweet memories!
Enjoy these days!
Hope you are feeling well!

When we lived in VA, our first Halloween there my daughters had to wear scarves, mittens, and heavy coats over their costumes. And they still were little popsicles.

Great pictures. I love the one with Braden and the kitty. Too cute.
