~*~ 2009 Visit to the Pumpkin Patch ~*~

We made our 2ND annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch in Kansas on Saturday. We met our friends the Ewings and had a really great time! We enjoy their company and the girls always get along well. Emma and Sophie played and played to the point of exhaustion! :) I uploaded the following pictures somewhat out of order but I am sure that you will enjoy them anyway!

Refueling after the Pumpkin Patch with lunch at Jimmy Johns! Posing by the quaint hay bale.
Sophie pushing a wheel barrel of gourds. Then it was Emma's turn to push the gourds!
According to the yardstick the girls ARE growing!!
Posing with their baby pumpkins.
Sophie was in disbelief that SO MANY "punks" could really exist!
Looking for a perfect pumpkin with their patient Daddy. And, Emma found hers! Emma kept laying the pumpkins on their side so that they could take a nap.
Sophie in a full sprint to a pumpkin of interest?
I love how they hold hands. They are SO GOOD to one another. :) The ground was a bit uneven and Sophie fell over. She was fine and we had a good laugh!
Emma was getting REALLY tired of me taking pictures, can't you tell?
Apparently so was Sophie!
It is possible that this pumpkin weighed more than SHE does!

It is harder than it looks!

Ahhhh, home at last and not blocked from Blogger thanks to a certain communist country! LOL

I love your pumpkin blog background. I guess I better get to mine? This post was cracking me up; sure looked like you were having lots of fun. I was so happy to see a few pictures of you too BFB! I miss you!! The girls are cuter than ever. I'm jealous that you're wearing some cool weather clothes. Tho it was cooler here today, it's still shorts weather and I'm ready for some sweatshirts and jeans.

Hope to catch up with you this coming week. The jetlag is fading and Miss Ava-Mei is settling in tho still a spitfire and a little bratty sometimes (to me). She's a joy though, truly, and she's just the polar opposite of Eliza so that helps me feel more balanced and more, some how, at peace with Eliza. Does that make sense? The first few days home, seeing A-M interract with everyone, made me feel sad for E, but now things are gelling more and I'm loving the special-ness of Eliza even more as this whirlwind of another daughter dances all around me!

Love ya! Hugs and kisses to the girls...and Greg...and the dogs! Can't wait to see you all in Charleston.

Oh my gosh, Megan, what fun! The pictures are wonderful. Inspires me to get our girls to our "local" (25 winding miles) pumpkin patch.

Looks like so much fun and the pictures are great!
We usually don't do the pumpkin thing but I'm thinking maybe we should this year. Hope my girls love it as much as yours look like they did!

Megan, I am feeling soooo guilty! Did I ever take you and Molly to a Pumpkin Patch? I probably told you that the only one we had was at the grocery store!!! You and Greg are such good parents! Emma and Sophie look so happy!
