31 Days: Pumpkin Patch, Playdates and Family Time

Yes, I didn’t post yesterday. Whoops…again. ha.

Yesterday was parent teacher conferences for us, then we decided we had to go to the Pumpkin Patch before Brandon left for the weekend. We were so bummed we wouldn’t be able to do our Del Osso trip this year {HERE, HERE} but time just never permitted us to get there. Bummer :(

Lucky for us there’s a great pumpkin patch near us and it was perfect! We went with our dear friends the Kings and boy, oh boy…did everyone have a blast!

This pumpkin patch was GORGEOUS at night. Seriously.

They had this unbelieveable slide that everyone LOVED…except me. I hate heights and it made me a nervous wreck. Lucky for everyone I was able to do it once or twice…without passing out. Brandon on the other hand {yes that’s him there} had a BLAST. So did Heidi, ha.

After we up and down the slide a million times, we searched for the PERFECT pumpkin. Um, do you have any idea how hard that is with a kiddo. EVERY pumpkin is the perfect pumpkin. ha. Evy found hers pretty quickly…..

But Jake….oh boy. He had a hard time!

But he sure is a cutie, right?

I thought I about died and gone to Heaven in the specialty pumpkin tent. Everything was so gorgeous and colorful!

It was getting pretty late and I will say someone in the photo was losing their patience. I’ll let you decided who that might be :)

Finally our little one LOST it. Like sincerely lost it. It was awesome. ha.

And it meant it was time to go. {Oh, that and when Jake peed his pants. Poor kid was so excited to be at the patch he didn’t even want to take a potty break. Kinda like the first day of school. Awesome.}

ANYWAY..we had so much fun and walked out with 4 great pumpkins. It was a wonderful night together as a family. Brandon is off again until Monday and I miss him. He’s been home for the last week and it’s been great having him around. Good thing I like my alone time though…I actually love these quiet Friday nights on my own. The house gets cleaned… I put a girl movie on, browse the internet, blog…yeah, it’s fun! ha. Really.

Today was really such a wonderful day with the kiddos. Jake had a friend over for a playdate this morning and his mom and I chatted away for hours while the kids played. We all had so much fun. I spent several hours working this afternoon, then ate dinner and read some books with the kids. Jake’s reading is getting so good and Evy is starting to show so much more interest in books. That makes me so excited because anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE reading. We have kids books everywhere around the house and I sincerely hope they love reading as much as I do. I can’t wait to spend hours reading with them and watching their faces light up with excitement. SO EXCITED.

Today I am thankful for the pumpkin patch, playdates and family time. So thankful. Thank you Lord for yesterday and today. I love how You use days like this to remind me of what is REALLY important. Thank you for blessing me.

Big hugs friends. xoxo

Oh PS…I rearranged my living room. I’m so excited. It looks so good, can’t wait for that to be another CHECK off my list!! :) xoxo

    Looks like you had a fun filled day. We love Del Osso and missed it this year as well. My parents live about 15 min from Del Osso. Did you know they have a ski sloop during the Christmas season? Thanks for sharing your pictures.
