Our day at the "Pumpkin Patch"

Yesterday, Katie, Colton and I spent the day with our friends at the "Pumpkin Patch" in Hayden. This was the patches second year to have the Egg Hunt. For $10 a child, we got to go on a hay ride out to the field, for the children to hunt 10 eggs each.  Every egg had a small gift in it like a small ball, bracelet, necklace, eraser, etc.  We got to go on a train ride or "gator ride", go through the petting zoo and jump on the inflatables for as long as their little hearts desired. Honestly, I thought it was well worth the money and children had a blast as you can see from the photos. We practically had the whole place to ourselves and didn't have to wait in lines like we do during the month of October.  These are a few of my favorite pictures:
Because "A" goes to another school, we don't get to see our friends as much as we would like. Katie enjoyed every moment possible with her friend and absolutely hated for the day to end.
~Thank you so much for an enjoyable day. A day that will always be remembered.

Colton and little "A" were just as big as the bigger kids or at least they thought they were just as big.  LOL!
The day started out fairly cool, so I left the children's long pants on.  As soon as the fireball was out long enough, it warmed up pretty quick.  We were all hot and tired by the time we left to back to Allison's house.  It was overall a beautiful Southern day.

Colton and Little "A" are 3 months apart.  Cuties!!

Allison and I couldn't believe how the little ones would climb up the big slide and slide down by. themselves.  Amazed! They are so BIG.
I was surprised at Colton walking right up to each pen and pet the farm animals.  He loved it!  I had a hard time getting him to leave.  I think he's going to be like mama and be an animal person. 

The donkey was so sweet. 
What a great day!
