Pumpkin Patch

Another year at the Pumpkin Patch has come and gone. It was so much fun. Nicholas still loved the inflatables of course. He could spend all day there if we let him. Burt and I both traveled up and down the slide with him. I even made a new friend who was scared to go down by herself. We picked our pumpkins earlier in the day this time around which made it more enjoyable for Nicholas, and us too for that matter. He kept walking around saying "pumpkiiiin...where are you" with his arms held up in the air. It was too cute. Joshua loved sitting on the pumpkins, pulling up on them and the haystacks and trying to eat the hay/straw. It was fun to watch such pure joy on their faces. They are just the cutest boys. Yes, I know I am biased, but who could disagree, right???

When eating our lunch a little girl across from us had some cotton candy, which Nicholas just had to have, so we got that and some popcorn. He grabbed a handful and chomped down on it, well, maybe not chomped since it is like air, but you get the picture. Then he decided he didn't like it so much. He called it a "yucky treat" and decided he would rather eat the popcorn. I guess that is a good thing right. Just like the fact that he doesn't like hotdogs. We also just had to get a funnel cake, but Nicholas didn't seem to care about it. He was enjoying playing in the dirt and throwing rocks instead while we enjoyed our treat. After lunch and treats we packed up the boys and headed back home. It was way past naptime so they both fell asleep in the car immediately, but thankfully still slept when we got home for another hour or so. As an added bonus my mom was here visiting so she was able to enjoy the day with us too. All and all it was a great day and we look forward to next year.

Not the most flattering picture for this little girl, but it was the best one for Nicholas and myself.
Doing a little jig. Not sure what music he was hearing, but it was groovy.....
He wanted Joshua to join in on the fun he was having. "Hands up like this baby brother"

Finally, pictures with Grammie.
