Pumpkin Patch

This weekend (since Tab didn’t have a football game) we went to the pumpkin patch!!  I absolutely love this fall activity.  Might be my very favorite!!  There’s a super cute pumpkin patch about 15 miles north of where we live.  It gives off all the right “farmy” vibes because it’s in the country.  
Once again…it was pretty HOT!  But…we pushed through (in our fall clothes and all).
The petting zoo was first.  Let ALL animals at petting zoos in the tri-state area be warned….Slaughter kids USED to be scared of petting you, but NOT anymore.  If you’re close to the fence…they will touch you.  Be prepared!

Nixon wasn’t a huge fan of putting food in his hand to feed the animals, but Tab helped him out.
I’m telling you…this girl is not scared!

Bowen thought this was so funny!  He was probably a little upset they weren’t feeding him!

TOO bright in the pumpkin patch!!  ha!
The best I got 🙂
The big kids were being silly trying to make B laugh.  It worked. 🙂

Bowen used to LOVE me so much.  Now, he loves his dad.  Hands down.  He’d choose Dad over Mom ANYDAY!

Love these big kiddos!

We all piled on the hayride.

Then we had a yummy hot dog lunch.  I got the big kids their very own Sprite.  That was Ebby Lee’s FAVORITE part of the entire trip, I think!
They went on a little train ride.

I’m telling you her very favorite thing about the whole day.
This little guy with his double-chin had fun too.  🙂

    This is so great. Obviously not as much fun as apple picking but a close second. Love Ebby's Lee's ponytail AND Tab's TCU hat! 🙂 Didn't know he was a fan!

    You do such a great job coordinating outfits without being too matchy. I love it!
