10-24-15 Autumn

I love this time of the year! The temps are getting cooler and the leaves are changing colors! I came out of my house early this morning and the air was crisp and the neighborhood was quiet. As I looked up a very large deer walked across out little street, staring at me as he went. It was just me and him taking in the morning!

We decided to take the kids to a pumpkin patch today. It's one of my favorite fall activites. My favorite is corn mazes, and luckily this place had one of those too! 

I brought the nice camera today, but I didn't have anyway to download them this evening so I just took photos of the screen. 

Our schedules are always so busy, so I was really thankful that we got the chance to spend time together as a family today. I had been looking forward to doing something like this for weeks. We surprised the kids by showing up at the farm. We took a hay ride out to a huge pumpkin patch. There were pumpkins everywhere! The kids had fun picking out pumpkins, but I'm pretty sure that Tim and I had even more fun than them! We wanted to hang out in the field a while longer, but the kids really want to do the bouncy slide. 

The next one pretty much sums up their relationship! 

Poor Baby E is usually the recipient of their more aggressive cuddles. 

Big E had fun wandering around and seeing how many pumpkins he could lift. 

I think Baby E was the one that was the most fascinated by the pumpkins.

After the pumpkin patch, they did the bouncy slide, the bounce house, the petting zoo, and finally the corn maze. It was a lot of fun, but towards the end C kept stopping to 'plant' kernels of corn in the dirt of the path! 

We were all tired by the time we got home and now the little ones are fast asleep in their beds. Tim and I are about to sit down for a movie! Wahoo!
