The last few weeks have been filled with some ups and downs; it's caused me to take a break from blogging. I've been sick, I've had my feelings hurt, and I've been exhausted. I had a much needed break and after last night, I decided that it was time to get back to 'me'. The me that loves blogging, that loves my family, and that loves having my little corner of the intrawebs. So, I apologize for my little break, but it came at the perfect time to open my eyes. God's timing is pretty impeccable.
Last weekend, Tulsa had a bye weekend, which meant that DJ had an entire Saturday off! We decided to take the girls to the pumpkin patch, since we had an entire day to spend together. It definitely does not happen often during football season!
Last Saturday was crazy hot! I'm pretty sure it was almost 90 degrees, which is just all sorts of crazy! I remember taking Gretchen to the pumpkin patch in Indiana when it was freezing cold and we were bundled in jackets! I'm not going to lie, I'll take the crazy hot 90s over the freezing cold weather we endured while living in Indiana.
Our first stop for the girls was the pony rides! Since we went to a friend's pumpkin farm last year, this was the first year that Megan was able to ride the pony's. She was really excited to ride a pony, and then when it was her turn, she instantly became shy and nervous. Typical Megan. DJ asked if he could walk along beside her, and Megan was happy.
Gretchen had tons of fun and climbed right on her pony all by herself.
Eventually, DJ was able to step a little further away from Megan as she grew braver!
After pony rides, we headed over to the petting zoo.
Gretchen was totally disinterested in the animals. She maybe stayed near the animals for 5 seconds and then wandered off and was begging to go to the hay maze.
DJ fed all of the animals. Megan was too shy, and Addy was just pretty curious.
Adalyn is getting so tall! She's still tiny, but as each day passes, I realize that she's not my little baby, but she's growing more and more into a toddler.
Adalyn loved climbing in and out of the wagon. I brought our Ergo, but she did really well walking around or sitting in the wagon.
Once the girls had their fare share of animals, we went to the hay maze.
The girls loved running through the hay bales!
Then we hit up the wagon ride!
It is so, so hard to get a picture with everyone looking at the same time!
After our hay ride, we went to pick out our pumpkins!
And, I attempted to get a picture of the girls.
And I failed.
We let Gretchen and Megan pick out a big pumpkin that we would carve later.
Then we picked out pie pumpkins for Adalyn and Megan to take to daycare for their annual pumpkin patch hunt.
Our girls had so much fun at the pumpkin patch! Like I said, it was crazy hot, but we really enjoyed our day!
Here are a few of our other pumpkin patch visits!
