Return to the Pumpkin Patch

We are definitely trying to make up for not taking part in any fall celebration last year
we picked the most beautiful day to get a start on it!

At first, Addie wasn't sure what to think of the over sized Minion

but it didn't take her long to realize she thought it was pretty neat.

My little photographer was all over the place and loved taking pictures of everything!

She did manage to take a break long enough to look for the perfect pumpkin.
However, she didn't realize that it was going to be a little too big for her to carry.
There was no being a helper this time!

Addie loved the hayride and didn't want to be distracted from keeping a very close watch on her prized pumpkin.

The corn maze was a complete nightmare to navigate Addie through.
Her little feet were tangled in every hose and weed along the way.
We ended up on the other side of the maze, in the very wrong area, nothing that a trek along the border of the maze and back into civilization didn't fix.

An Addie sized inflatable.
I put my extreme germaphobe issue aside and dropped her into the pit along with the hay and dirt from all the kids that came before.

Baby was not to be left behind, and made maneuvering the steps a little more challenging.

Despite her best efforts, she still needed some help.
Julien kept a VERY close watch on her and when he realized she was struggling, he reached in to offer her a hand.

We ended up back at the patch for Julien and Bailey to pick a pumpkin
and Addie had to investigate each one along the way.

Julien - our hero!

Addie's baby must have been getting restless, because she stood patting her baby and telling her it was going to be OK.

The bunnies, pigs, goats and chickens were all fun to look at, but Addie was less than thrilled at the idea of touching any of them.

Corn - more fun than sand - and easier to clean.

It was almost closing time and only a few people left at the farm, so of course Julien - once again - became the hero of the day.

We had the most beautiful Alabama weather all weekend long, and we took advantage of it by spending the entire weekend outside.
Sweet memories with my sweet babies!

So much fun! I wish we had a giant pile of corn around here to play in!
