I know the beautiful weather won't last much longer. We just want to take advantage of it while it lasts!

who goes to the same preschool even though they're not in the same class.
The kids got to do some farm chores. Here's J pitchin' some hay.
His class. (At least the ones that would sit for the picture.)
The last thing he got to do was probably his favorite: racing the John Deere around the track. He left that other kid in the dust!Day 2--we visited another pumpkin patch with a big group of friends and family.
Here's J in his usual form, surrounded by girls...
Em gets to work inspecting the pumpkins.
J and Papaw on the sunny hayride to the pumpkin patch.
J was so sure about this pumpkin. It was the perfect one for him. It took him a whopping 5 seconds to pick it. So we spent the rest of the time picking one for Em.

They had a cool "pumkin tree" with what must have been 100 or more pumkins hanging on it.
Day 3: Back at the second patch, but with more things to do. We went with our neighbors this time. This is one of J's new friends who lives next door. They're riding the pumpkin train.
Driving the tractor.
Again, the hayride to the pumpkin patch. This time we had no intention of bringing back any pumpkins, but the ride was still fun.
This is E on her birthday having her first birthday ice cream. There's a video below of her loving it!

Jen and I made these tissue paper pompoms to decorate at the park. They were easy and adorable and pretty afordable, by Martha Stewart. Plus we took them home, so they hang over Em's bed and she loves to point at them!
