Pumpkin Patch

Today was such a good day.  This morning we took the girls to the pumpkin patch at a local farm.  They have tons of stuff for the kids to do, including slides, tractors to play on, and animals to pet and feed.  We went with our friends the Roberts' and so the kids (and us parents) were able to play together.

Chasing each other in the maze

These two thought the goats needed pumpkins too. They worked so hard to get them what they thought they needed.

After we played, we took a hayride over to the pumpkin patch and the kids were able to walk around and pick their own pumpkin.  Sophia was so overcome with excitement that she fell asleep.  Emma was more than happy to choose one for her.

Sweet Amber offered to carry Sophia while we chose our pumpkins and Sophia was so content with her that she fell right to sleep.

After the kids exhausted themselves at the farm, we headed over to the park to have a picnic lunch.  When we got home, we got the kids cleaned up, changed and put them down for a three hour nap.  Mommy and Daddy took a good, long nap too. ;) 

Now we're getting ready to have some pizza for dinner and finish off the evening with some shopping and then maybe Andy and I can watch a movie after the kids go to bed.  I'll have to see if I can persuade him to watch a movie instead of the UT/Georgia game.  Five years ago, I "made" him get married during the game, so I may be pushing my luck.

You got some great pics! I love the one of Brad & Matthew on the slide and the one of Matthew & Emma on the tractor. Matthew also took a 3 hour nap (I actually had to wake him) and we snuck in little naps too. I vote for the pumpkin patch every Saturday! ;) It was a fun morning!
