This year we hit up the pumpkin patch for the first time. The boys were excited to see their grandma and also their aunt 'deana neena neena' and cousin Eli. We went to Carmichaels in Bixby on Tuesday. I had heard good things but when I looked online and saw that they had a petting zoo and pony rides I was sold. And, please don't judge me that I put my kids in shorts and hoodies (that are *almost* too small...we were not prepared for the cooler weather in the clothes department!) The forecast called for a high in the upper 70s and when it would have been ok if the wind hadn't picked up. And please don't judge the fact that my children are wearing socks and crocs. It was chilly out and their blue shoes matched their shirts. So there.
When we got there we looked at pumpkins for a bit then got some feed for the animals and headed out to see all the fun goats, sheep, piggies, chickens, horsies, llamas ect. There were a few other brave moms with their kids out that morning and Stockton had his eye on the girls right away. He LOVES little girls. It's super cute to see how tickled he gets when it comes to girls. And he likes to kiss them. It can get a little out of hand.

Ok...so you are pretty much going to see a ton of pics and captions of our animal/pumpkin patch adventure. But there is nothing I like more than telling a story with pictures.

After pony rides we picked out some pumpkins and decided to call it a morning. The wind had really picked up and everyone was starting to feel the chill. We posed for a few pics then headed to the car to warm up. It was a super fun day and we will definitely make it out there again next year!
|great end to a fun day|
