that little pumpkin on the right side is getting so big :( it was her idea to take a picture standing up next to luca and the pumpkin to show how tall she is. turned out adorable!
look how far we've come. Here is our precious ella avery at her first pumpkin patch...
and luca at his first pumpkin patch last year!
Our visit to the pumpkin patch was extra special this year! It is an old tradition in my family, but since I've moved away, had children and all my cousins have grown up as well, our tradition now is mom coming to Texas and us going to the pumpkin patch and carrying the tradition on with the kiddies. However, this year was different! We took a day trip to Tulsa for my Aunt Kim's 50th birthday (which was awesome) and so we were all together and able to go to the pumpkin patch as a family with the cousins again...minus 1 (we missed you blake)!
The cousins minus Blake :(
luca baby was SO excited about the mini pumpkins. he was beaming!
This hoss was hosting his own punkin chunkin contest. Anytime he could get his hands on one, it went flying through the air 2 seconds later! I think he might throw shot put in track someday :)
On a pony ride with Uncle ElJeffy...she was so excited because she got the pony she wanted...pink hair and a princess strapped on :) sounds about right for this girlie girl!
Luca baby was tearing it up at the patch...he didn't stop for long despite the fact he hadn't taken one single nap all day! He's a party animal!
and a visit to the pumpkin patch would not be complete without a train ride! I love this picture of my mom and the kids...you have no idea how hard it is to get both of these little lovelies to look at the camera with a presentable expression at the SAME TIME! haha
face painting too of course. Ella chose a rainbow butterfly. she's so indecisive that she usually opts for "rainbow" when asked to choose her favorite color...gets it from her mama :)
After the patch, we all went to Starubucks for pumpkin spice lattes and halloween goodies!
We can't wait for Halloween and trick-or-treating!
