The Pumpkin Patch, 2011

We had the most beautiful fall weekend here in the Lou last week, just perfect! We spent so much time outside and it was just lovely, our weekend rounded out with a trip to the pumpkin patch on Sunday. We went with some friends and had a great time. It was a new place and I think we will definately go back. We got to pick the pumpkins off the vine and it was way too much fun. It got me so exciting for Christmas tree shopping!!! I seriously think I could decorate the house tomorrow for Christmas and be totally content :)

My little stinker, I totally made him pose at the entrance with the pumpkins, he was actually somewhat compliant, haha!
We rode on the wagon over to the field where we picked out our pumpkins and waited to drive back. It was just such a pretty day and we found some good looking pumpkins!

He was totally over the smiling and posing for pictures, he wanted to run around with his friends. But, paparazzi Momma couldn't resist taking a few more pictures of my sugar :)
We couldn't leave without a little "tiny" pumpkin for Connor to carry around. He wants that one to go in his room to match the pumpkin lights we put up. I am pretty sure he is the sweetest thing in town.

Our sweet little family, we had such a nice day! After the pumpkin patch it was time for naps and powerwashing the porch! It was a great weekend and we are just so thankful for this gorgeous fall weather!

Brookdale Farms

We have been blessed with some great neighbors and I just love them! We all have kiddos around the same age, like to be at home and have fun - it works out perfect! I love being able to have a great time with Bj and Connor - have both of them have a great time, and not have to go anywhere - haha! Friday was a beautiful day so we decided to head to Brookdale Farms for a little fun with the kiddos! None of us had been, but it was really cute. It was just the right size for the kids to have fun and the Momma's not to panic about losing a child :)

This was a hit for everyone - the corn box. We were so lucky and got there at the perfect time, we almost had everything to ourselves! I seriously must have put Connor's shoes back on about a 115 times this day :) It was so entertaining in fact, we said someone needed to put one in the backyard! I believe I was elected, we shall see if it happens!

 The cow train was pretty fun, so fun in fact the Momma's got to ride too! The kids were laughing, they kept going - it's fun and bumpy!
 Connor was fixing me a delicous breakfast of corn - what can I say, he is pretty good to his Momma!

They were so sweet on the hayride, they loved it! It was just such a fun day and the perfect little fall outing. Have I mentioned that I love the fall? I seriously can't get enough of it. We are going to hit up the pumpkin patch tomorrow, woo-hoo! When I was putting Connor to bed we were talking about the best parts of our day (this is usually the best part of my day, I LOVE hearing what he says!) - here is Connor's best part of the day:

"Driving in Miss. Jess's mini-van because the doors open and I can help Reese out" Hahaha! Maybe a mini van is in my future?! :)
