Today we took our second annual trip to the pumpkin patch! My mom would take me and my cousins to the pumpkin patch every year when I was a kid...and even when I was an adult :0) So, we are continuing this tradition with Ella! We opened her halloween present from Nana B and Papa Bo and then we made breakfast. Ella took a nap and we leisurely got ready. We went to eat lunch and then we were off to the pumpkin patch! We realized how far we had come in 1 year. Last year, Ella was only 3 weeks old. We woke up and started getting ready right away and didn't manage to get to the pumpkin patch until 4:00 pm and left when the sun was going down! At that point, I was wondering if we would ever be able to leave the house to do anything! We've made a lot of progress toting the baby around :0) Here are a few pics...
This was a fun train ride! Ella got excited and stood in my lap and did her dancey dance all the way around the patch!
It took a minute to convince Ella that this was not another medical procedure she was being tricked into :0) Just some harmless face painting!
This is her new favorite passy :0) Yes, a passy! It replaced the thumb today.
Searching for the perfect pumpkin
But Daddy, I want this one!!! We've already decided that next year we are coming equipped to buy a pumpkin bigger than Ella.
Daddy started it :0)
Ella's pumpkins...the one on the left is an owl for my little Chi-O legacy! Hootie hoo!
And then she crashed!
A little trip down memory lane...here are a couple more pics of our trip to the pumpkin patch last year!
