Our Pumpkin Patch Visit

I think that the Pumpkin Patch visit is something that you anticipate from the moment you see two lines on that stick.  To be able to take your little ones to pick out there own pumpkin and to create the memories much like you probably have from your childhood.  Well at least it is something I have always envisioned doing with my kids.  Maybe because those two lines showed up in October 2 years ago while fall was fully in swing but I have thought about that day for a long time.  We didn't go last year because I was keeping the twins away from most public places due to being preemies we really kept them only around family for the first few months.

We visited our local pumpkin patch with our good friends and their daughter Scarlett. This pumpkin patch has the most AMAZING apple fritters, we have even driven out there just to get them before.  They make them fresh on Saturday mornings and they are melt in your mouth good.  We grabbed a dozen to take home with us so we could have them all weekend long.  We had corn on the cob, visited the animals (which Ava was enthralled with), sat in a Fire Truck and of course picked out a couple of little pumpkins for the twinsies. 

Of course because we screwed with their nap schedule they were getting a little testy towards the end but all in all I'm calling it a success.

Here are some pictures from our visit!

Also I can't believe that my little tiny twins are now 17 months old.  Times just flies, it really has been almost 2 years since we finally found out that we were expecting even though I can remember every single emotion of that day in October of 2009.  Just can't believe that those two little people were the size of a pencil lead this time 2 years ago.  So thankful for each and every day with them and our little family!

Super cute! The pumpkin patch was on our list of things to do this year too, and we made it there on Friday, but it got cold and dark very quickly so we didn't get any pictures or pumpkins picked out! Looks like you guys had an awesome time!! Such cuties!!

I know exactly what you mean about October. I found out I was pregnant at the same time (Oct. 2009) and everything about this time of year brings back a rush of memories.

Adorable pics! I love the one with the corn on the cob.
