Green Acres Is The Place To Be

Farm livin' is the life for me!
Not really, but sitting in this gigantic tractor sure makes you want to be a farmer.
We took the boys to the pumpkin patch this afternoon. We such a great time that we never even got to the pumpkins...
We gave in to the numerous requests for face painting. The artist was very fast and friendly. Luke was quite pleased with his Spiderman.

Andy kept saying he wanted a pumpkin face. I'd say his wish was granted.
So cute! He bounced around and giggled the rest of the day, singing: "I'm a happy pumpkin, I'm a happy pumpkin!"

I guess all those cheerios and tall glasses of milk are paying off.

Andy and Luke went with Steve on a long hay ride. Eli and I stayed behind to do some people-watching. Poor Eli spent the afternoon in the stroller because there wasn't anyplace for him to go. He never complained, just reclined and took it all in.
We also played in the sandbox, bounced in the bouncy house, rode ponies and investigated the corn maze.
What a great day.
Can I just point out that it wasn't raining, we didn't have to go home because we were cold and we didn't have to slog through the mud all afternoon. Just sayin'.


  1. Oh my goodness, you are hilarious. I think about last year when I, 6+ months pregnant, took the girls to the pumpkin patch in Auburn. It's was a mudfest...we came home covered in it. All that for a few pumpkins. The weather is fabulous here!

    I love the pumpkin face and andy's little song. He's such a funny kid.

  2. Okay you are so funny! I love reading your blog posts. Yes, I agree we are loving that we do not have to own a rain coat, boots and it is 88 in October.

  3. Sun? In October? I like to pretend you are still here, but it's getting more and more obvious you are not!

    Your boys are so cute! I love the pumpkin face song. Adorable!
