pumpkin patch

On Saturday the 16th, I convinced the hubs to trek out to a pumpkin patch a few hours outside of town.

Of course I left the whole "a few hours out of town" part out when I asked if we could go.

I do know my audience. ;)

I timed the trip perfectly. I knew it was going to take about an hour and half to two hours to get there, so I planned to leave at the beginning of BG's nap time.

Looked good on paper, but she had other plans.

After two hours of driving, in which BG cried and fought sleep and Mr. Perfect played the "are we there yet?" game, I was seriously regretting my decision to head out to Jesup.

Fortunately, the trip turned out to be worth it.

There was a petting zoo, rides, a hay ride, and pumpkin patch for us to see. BG took all the sights in and didn't cry once, even though she was beyond tired.

She loved the petting zoo. It took her a minute to warm up to them, but then she was all over it. No fear.

She was squealing at the little horse. I think she liked the fact that he was her size. :)

BG and I thought it would be a blast to get on the "cow train". It was totally fun. 'Til I almost killed myself trying to get out.

..must start diet..


We ran into a friend of mine from high school and her little girl out there. The girls weren't all that interested in each other. Way more important things to check out.
We climbed on to a wagon for a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. Once again, I'm not sure BG even noticed we were moving, but she was loving entertaining the rest of the people with us. I love my child. She is such a ham.

We put the munchkin down for pictures in the pumpkin patch and she was not having it. Apparently rolling around in the hay is not my little diva's cup of tea.

We let her pick out her own pumpkin. :)

Finally it was time to leave the 300 degree pumpkin patch. How is it this daggum hot in October??

She was not feeling taking pictures with her Mom anymore.

After a quick bite to eat, I took my chance on getting some pictures of my very tired child.


After that, it was time to head home.

He thinks this is hilarious. I think it's funny that she spits in his drink.



This next picture makes me have hope she might get one thing from me; I am convinced we have the same mouth. Look. It's there.

We had such a good time. It was ridiculous hot, but BG had a blast.

And in less than two seconds...

Success.

Looks like a great time. BG looks very skeptical of the big horse but that's super cute she liked the tiny one.
