pumpkin patch

This past weekend, we took a family trip to Moore's Pumpkin Patch. We had never heard of it before, until we saw it on the drive home  from the airport! 

I'm sure Kieran would have been fine holding on by himself, but I just don't trust a merry-go-round without straps!

Next, we went in the jumpy, which Anna usually loves, but she ended up bouncing maybe a few minutes. At Weezie's, she can jump on the trampoline, bounce on her bottom, and almost stand up on her feet again! Instead, Anna liked going down the slide, aka the ramp to the bouncy entrance :)

Kieran, on the other hand, lasted the whole 10 minutes, and the only way to get him out short of us climbing in and yanking him out, was to pretend we were walking away and leaving. That is ONE QUICK WAY to get a little boy out of a bouncy, let me tell ya!

Meanwhile, Anna had fun driving in the car,

and riding a bull.

She thinks she's so big, that she was planning on busting through this gate to take a ride on the bees!

So we distracted the both of them and took them on a wagon ride to pick out our pumpkins.

If you've seen pictures of me when I was about Kieran's age, then you know that this "look" was my "look". From first glance, you'd think he was extremely unhappy to be there, but if you look closely, there's a slight twinkle in the eye, just a teeny tiny, ever so slight, upturn in his lips. It's because he's giving the stubborn look, and right after this was taken, he smiled! This look was my look. We may not look alike, but we definitely have parts of our personality that are identical!

Found the perfect pumpkin for his school project!

Trying to eat the crackers through the bag.

Aren't my boys so cute?

Headed to the top of the super slide!

And away we go!

Happy to take home her pumpkin!

We picked out some colorful gourds too!

Bye, pumpkin patch! We'll see you next year!

We had fun riding your rides, sliding down slides, and picking out pumpkins to mark a festive October and November!

It's a beautiful noise-And it's a sound that I love- And it makes me feel good-Like a hand in a glove -Yes it does, yes it does-What a beautiful noise
