Yesterday was quite the most beautiful day to head out to one of our favorite pumpkin patches with all our friends.....
We love going to Dollingers because they have all kinds of fun buildings to play in.
Like this barn....
and this castle....
and this church, (even though we came from there)...
and the school!
Grandpa even had fun climbing in this castle!
And what kids don't like playing on hay? Even Daddy joined in on the fun.
Baby Benny (who is 1 month old today!) came to his first pumpkin patch extravaganza!
We played on the hay with our buddies Gavin and Jackson.
We climbed the pirate ship too.
Baby Tessa and Baby Colton came out for the fun too! Just imagine the fun next year when they are all running around!
Every year we take this picture.
All of kiddies getting so big!
We had lots of friends come meet us at the patch today. We got to play with Gavin, Tessa, Colton, Emily, Sean, Mia, Sophia, Jackson, and Baby Benny!
I think they are used to this by now!
Evie of course had to hold all the babies. She loves her some Baby Colton.
Presley had to hold his little buddy. In fact the other day, he said Colton was "his buddy." How sweet is that?
Evie also had to hold Baby Tessa.
Then we saw there was some face painting. Guess who went first?
(ok not sure how this pic ended up in here but it's not from this day. Not sure where it came from)
Auntie Amy came with us too.
Then Evie and Presley had to get their faces painted too. Evie wanted one just like her big sis and Presley got his Ninja Turtle! Actually he told me it was Raphael.
Gracie got to pet and hold a baby bunny.
There were so many pumpkins there but these are my favorite pumpkins of all.
The best thing about this pumpkin patch is that it's mostly free! You can buy food or bring a picnic lunch and the train ride and hay ride cost money. But there is so much all else you can do with the kiddies that doesn't cost money. Not to mention all the great picture taking which are great memories every year.
Grandpa even got himself in on the Baby Colton action. He must have been the baby whisperer because he fell asleep.
We had to walk out to take a train ride too so my girls were so sweet about holding hands on the way there.
And my favorite pic was when they were holding Daddy's hands.
We made it out to the train ride and these guys rode in the caboose.
Baby Colton took his first train ride too. Doesn't he look excited?
And then my kids had to go in the corn maze. Now the last time we were in one, it took awhile to get out. They had to take turns being the leaders but eventually we did find our way out.
Then my pumpkins were begging to get some real pumpkins to take home.
So we loaded up a cart and bought some to take home and evetually carve.
I heart fall!
