The Pumpkin Patch

We went to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago and had a great time. There were some really cute pictures so I thought I'd share a few with you. We went with our neighborhood friends, The Demarees. Warren and Ewan are both 3 and are great pals. They play together really well and LOVE to dress up like cops and firemen and go after trouble. Warren is there in the background in this picture. They got to go on a hayride, feed sheep, goats, and cows, and climb on hay. It was pretty fun. Isaac really enjoyed feeding all the animals. Ewan had a special affection for a baby cow and wanted to ONLY feed the baby--not the big cows.
Here is Ewan, unsure of the sheep but sharing a grin of utter delight.

Here is Isaac trying to feed a chicken a rock. He thought that chicken, rooster actually, really wanted to eat a rock.

Here are Ewan and Warren together sitting in the midst of some pumpkins.

I am so thankful for our new friends in the neighborhood. Several of us moms get together every Thursday morning for a play date. All of us mommies drink coffee and chat while the kiddos play. 5 mommies and 9 kiddos. The amazing thing is that they all play together really well. It is one of the highlights of our week.
