OK, so the title is a bit misleading…still no baby, only 10 days to go! We are squeezing it all in over here! This weekend was spent at soccer, an arts and crafts festival with a great friend from my past life as a teacher, and of course the annual pumpkin patch trip. You think that these moments are going to slip by. It will only be October for a few more weekends, so you go over the mountain to the AWESOME pumpkin patch. You know the one with the slide….
And all of the farm animals to pet and feed. The animals that your little toddler spends hours a day practicing their noises. She has never seen them up close, until now…
I swear she would have stood by the goats saying, “Baaaa” for hours.
We could hardly peel her away. But, I told her there were BUNNIES and she came running to say, “Hop, hop, hop, hop” five hundred times.
Yes, that is her reaching into the bunny cage while I snap a photo. Good parenting, I know!
Bradley had just as much fun with the animals too. He spent most of the trip asking to go to the next thing. Come on MOOOOM there is SO much to do!
Giant game of volleyball anyone?
I love this pumpkin patch. We have been going with my sister for years, and each year it gets bigger and bigger. There was quite a crowd there this year. I was surprised. I guess other people have found our little secret!
What is the pumpkin patch without a pig race?
I always have high hopes for the perfect pumpkin picture. This is as good as it got with the kiddos….
Tromping through the vines with an 18 month old, a five year old that wants the biggest pumpkin in the patch, at 38 weeks pregnant isn’t the easiest thing to do. I did get a few of the kids on the hay ride that I am in love with…
Look at those smiles on the right?? They look so much alike it is scary!
These two boys melt my heart, my how they have grown!!
Although I can’t wait to meet the littlest pumpkin, I am so glad I got the chance to have these last few moments as a family of four. Even if we did look like a three ring circus. Crazy toddler, pregnant mother, and trying to carry a million pumpkins back to the hay ride. We were definitely a sight for sore eyes.
But then you look back and know that it was worth it. And next year we will do it again, as a family of five. With an almost six year old, a 2 1/2 year old and a one year old. Hopefully my sister will come again to help us carry all of our pumpkins back to the tractor. Love you Lindsay!
Yep, definitely worth it!
Happy fall, love, Clare
