Fun at the Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday, our little family ventured out to Hammond, LA to visit Ms. Heather's Pumpkin Patch. We had a splendid time and the weather was beautiful!

This is as close as Emma would get to the animals in the petting zoo.
She's at that stage where she's scared of animals and such.

But Matt had no trouble holding this cute little chick.

And neither did I. Eli tried to grab a hold of this little chick as well.

A perfect spot for a cute little boy.

Of course, sister had to join in.

Yee haw!

Just a little country girl, who actually lives in the city.

Pretending to ride the Oregon trail in a covered wagon.

Rubber duck racing.

Emma was a little skeptical of the huge air pillow to jump on at first.

But joined right in after a few minutes.

"I want these two!"

"This one's heavy, Mama!"

Later that afternoon, we enjoyed some pumpkin painting!

We had so much fun & I can't wait to do this again next year! I love the Fall and all the fun activities it brings!
