Pumpkin Patch Day (If that's what you want to call it!)

Finally! One of my posts I've been meaning to get up here!!
Two weeks ago yesterday, my in-laws left, taking my neices and nephew with them, after spending the weekend with us. So, to ease the heartache my girls were feeling as they drove off. S and I decided to take them to the pumpkin patch. I had done a little researching since we are new to the area this fall hoping to find something fun! I was willing to drive up to an hour away. (I guess we should have looked farther!)

A place in Flower Mound sounded fun. So we fed the kids lunch, filled up their water bottles and loaded them into the van! We began our drive! Personally, I was pretty excited. I always LOVE taking my kiddos to places like this! We knew there was going to be two farms right next to each. They looked to offer pretty much the same things and parking was free along with their bounce houses and 'hay tower'.

Just M and T took a nap on the way there. They were exhausted after their busy weekend!

Upon arriving S was asking, "This one or the next one? This one or the next one?" I said, I don't know just pick a drive way. So he quickly whipped into the first one. We found us a parking spot and walked into the 'area.'

Honestly, I was a little disappointed. Okay, not a little, ALOT!!! The pumpkins where spread out on the ground and all the smaller more reasonably priced ones were set in piles!

We let the girls jump in the bounce houses a little bit and slide down the slides. Then there were a couple of photo opps. The girls 'looked' at the petting zoo. (A couple of goats!)
(I guess her nose is itching! But to be perfectly honest...I'm just not sure?)

And picked their pumpkins! Then we were outta there! I felt bad for the girls, we were there right under an hour.


Our day at the 'Pumpkin Patch' turned into 'HAPPY HOUR AT SONIC DAY!!!'

I could not stress to my children ENOUGH how AWESOME it is to get 5 of us each our OWN drinks for $5!!! The simple pleasures we enjoy!!It's amazing how happy they were when they got THEIR drinks!! It was hot outside!! We were hot!! These drinks were NOT!!!

I know, I know....this is a HORRID picture of me, but it was hot outside, unbelievably Hot and i wanted you to see how greatful I was for my drink!! I usually don't look like this! It's usually much worse!! Ha!!

This is how stinkin' hot it was!!! Nobody!!! I repeat NOBODY!!! should be out gathering pumpkins on the 26th day in October when the temperature is this high!!!!

But, we did it!!! Chalk it up to the love of fall and wanting to give your children some memories!!! This really isn't what I had planned!!! But does it ever turn out that way?? I think NOT!!!

Looks like they had fun in spite of it all. Only in Texas can it be near 100 degrees and still be Fall. Oh how i wish for the cooler temps. Love the picture of all of them together with their pumpkins. Little Haileys pumpkin is almost as big as her.
