I can't believe my children are 5 and 8 and this is the first year we have gone to a pumpkin patch! That's crazy! I guess the month of October has so many activities, we've just never had time. Anyhoo....we decided to check out the new pumpkin patch in our neck of the woods this year. It was their first year to try it and I think it was pretty successful. Little Bit really enjoyed it.
Since Miss Priss went with Papaw and D to Georgia for a Scottish Festival, Little Bit and I decided we needed some mother daughter time for ourselves. What better way to spend a BEAUTIFUL fall Saturday?? While Mr.Mark helped weed-eat and clean out gutters, Ms. Rose was able to join us as well.
Getting ready to go in I had to stop and take pictures in front of all the fall goodies. Thankfully Little Bit humored me and smiled!
Once we were in, the first thing she wanted to do was the bouncy slide.
At first she was a little hesitant without Miss Priss by her side, but she quickly got over that! I think she could have stayed on the slide ALL-DAY-LONG!
When I finally managed to pull her off the slide, we went over to check out the Hay Maze.
I don't think Little Bit completely understood the concept. She thought it was just a fun place to run around in. We finally convinced her to find the exit so we could go see what else there was to do.
Next we took a break for a quick snack. Cute spider cupcakes and some sweet tea!
Then it was off to the hay ride to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins.
Little Bit walked ALL over the ENTIRE patch to find the perfect pumpkin.
She examined each one!
And finally found her perfect match! It couldn't be too big or too small.....it was just right!
Mrs. Rose and Little Bit enjoying a s'more as we waited for the tractor to come back and pick us up.
The farmer was also a photographer or so he said! ;) He did manage to get a nice shot of the 3 of us!
Concentrating on making sure she painted her new pumpkin just right.
Last but not least she had to get her face painted. This girl was really good at painting whatever the kids requested. They didn't just have things to choose from, this girl made it up as she went!
Little Bit was thrilled about her cat.
After a long day at the pumpkin patch, Little Bit helped me get ready for the afternoon's photo shoot. She said "Here mommy, I'll pose for you!" Now why won't she do that when I'm taking her pictures??
We had a great Little Bit - Mommy day for sure. We missed Miss Priss, but I know she had a blast in Georgia. Miss Priss took her camera this time, so I will be loading some of her pictures from the Scottish festival soon.
