A few weekends ago I took the kids and we went out to Linder Farms Pumkin Patch. Glen was over at his Uncle Davids place doing some work and wasn't able to go, but we did not got alone we ended up picking up Ann and Alex and having them come to join in the fun! We meet up with Allan, Emily, Abby, Alyssa, Kristin, Zachery, Janette, Dustin and their kids, and Merlayn later on during the night. It was a lot of fun to met up with them :) We first started by going to the petting zoo that they had there. The kids loved seeing the animals. Next we went on a trackor pulled hay ride out to the pumkin fields where we got off and started the hunt for the pumpkins. There were all sorts of different pumpkins, red ones, little one, bumpy warted lookin ones, blueish green ones, white ones and of course orange ones. The kids love being out there picking out their pumpkins, however it was FREEZING that day, but they still had fun. After getting our pumpkins we got some hot coco to warm us up. That's when we met up with the rest of the group Allan, Emily and her sisters. We took the kids back to the petting zoo, where they feed the animals. The whole time we were there Levi insisted on going on the truck pulled barrel cow ride. He would say, "Mom, Mom, Mom, can we go on it now, can we, can we?" I love how kids can be so excited at times, even though sometimes it can be overwhelming, ha... that where patiences comes in ;) At the end of the night he was able to go on the cow barrel train with his sister, cousins and friends. Kimmi and Levi had so much fun. At night time for their prayers or when they are saying the family prayer Kimmi and Levi both say in the parayer,"And thank you we could go to the pumpkin patch, and go on rides, and thank you that Antie Ann and Alex and Uncle Allan and Aunt Emily and Abby could go. Thank you we could get pumpkins and that we could go on rides." Still after a few weeks they are still talking about it. They had a blast! After the pumking patch we went back to my dad had hot soup and then met up with Glen at his Uncle Davids for a bon fire and smores. All and all it was a fun memoriable night. My camera lost battery power right after Alex's picture or there would have been alot more photo's, but here are the ones that I got. Even with these photo's I suprised that I was able to get any because when we first got there I went to take pictures and it would shut off and tell me to change the battery pack. I keep turning it on and it would let me take a picture here and there and then the battery died. But hey I was able to get a few ;) The Kiddo's right before the hunt! Alex helping Levi across the little ditch. I love my nephew he is so fun and such a sweet heart. Percious Photo.... Levi and his first pumpkin that he picked up. When he saw the blueish green ones he changed his mind on the first pumpkin he picked up. He wanted a BLUE one ;) Alex and his pumpking..... it was a little bit heavy, but he's a tough one. Our group of pumpkins that we brought home with us.
The first weekend in October we were able to go down to Utah for a super quick trip to see Carmen and Ryan's baby be blessed. It was fun to see the family. Their little baby James is so cute and such a good baby! We are happy for you guys! Little James Carmen, Ryan and James The men who helped particapte in the blessing.
