On Saturday afternoon we enjoyed one of our most laid back trips ever to the Pumpkin Patch! And we've been going almost every year for 9 years! I love this tradition. ☺
We went late Saturday afternoon so we could let Layton take a nap and hopefully avoid a super cranky 3 year old come time for our Georgia party later that night. And our plan worked! Layton got in a good nap and then we were off to our local farm/pumpkin patch for the rest of the afternoon. We stayed until closing time and had tons of fun. Plus relaxed! It was one of our best visits!
These 3 keep growing bigger and bigger every time we go. They are practically full grown now. Waaaahhhhh!
Look at these sweet babies from back in 2014. Our first Fall back in Bville and our first visit to Twin Oaks Fun Farm. Be still my heart.
And here they are in 2015. Thank goodness for the blog. It's the BEST having these memories to look back on and read about.
Saturday afternoon was pretty amazing. It was a little overcast so the temps were pleasant and there weren't many people there so it was easy to do whatever we wanted and just hang out. It was a super fun trip!
They were troopers about the pictures. Every year we remind them we have to take lots of pictures and then they can do whatever they want and this year they just went along with it, easy-peasy, no big deal. #itwasamazing ☺
Mama and her boys
Daddy and his boys
The first thing they wanted to do after making pictures was enjoy the mega playground area. Playing on this is always a big highlight of their trip.
We even got in some swing time while the boys played. It was so nice!
The corn house is a big favorite too!
After tons of fun playing in the corn and a little more time back on the playground they were ready to go feed the animals. Layton let the goats eat right out of his hand!
So did Garrison!
Austin is a little more like his mama and would rather be on the safe side... or the clean side.... either way, I'm with him. Haha!
After feeding the animals they wanted to try "fishing" for goldfish. #whyyyy? But daddy let them and they persisted. They wanted 3 but settled for 2. Terrell caught them both and the boys wanted them to live in Granna and Papa's fish pond. So that was our first stop after leaving. Next year they can fish if they want to but we aren't keeping any! Haha!
We picked out our family pumpkin while we were there and the boys chose a mini pumpkin to paint later.
We went on a fun hayride (which may have been the highlight of the trip for Layton.... he has now requested a big tractor like the one that pulled us on the hayride for his birthday, hahaha), then the big boys played corn hole with Terrell while I watched Layton on the playground and then everybody ended up back on the playground and we had the whole thing to ourselves. It was such a fun and laid back trip. We all had a great time. Even though I have to force the tradition at times or can be a big hassle figuring out when to go, it always turns out fun and definitely worth it.
We're all looking forward to carving our pumpkin, painting the mini pumpkins, and gearing up for Halloween! Happy Fall Y'all! ☺
