Pumpkin Patch

The weather was kind of rainy on Saturday but the minute it let up we drove to Klicker's pumpkin patch so the kids could all get a pumpkin and run around on the hay bales.
It was so fun to watch Colt enjoy it this year, the minute we got there I let go of his hand and he ran over to this pumpkin and gave it a big hug and a kiss:)
He wanted his own wagon to wheel his pumpkin around.
I tried to get him to smile for the camera but this is all he would give me.
This is the best group picture I could get, its not easy to get all of these girls to cooperate. They range in ages from 11 (Madelyn) to 15 months (Colt). They all had so much fun running around and playing. The older girls love there younger cousins and are such a huge help with them. Its like having babysitters around all the time.
Everyone got to pick out 1 pumpkin to take home and carve. The older girls had a hard time choosing just one.
My camera battery died just as my mom snapped this picture so I have no other pictures of the day. We went back home after this and had dinner and all the older girls carved there pumpkins on the front porch. Then once it got dark out we went to the corn maze which is about 5 minutes from my parents house. It was so much fun, it took us about an hour to get through it and I carried Colt the entire time, he ended up falling asleep on my shoulder for the last 10 minutes of it. It was like 8:00 and way past his bedtime (he almost is always asleep by 7). The older girls kept trying to hide and then jump out of the corn and scare us. It was such a fun weekend and so fun for Colt to get together with all his cousins and play. He is such a mommy's boy sometimes, if I was around he really just wanted to be next to me. My sister Amy would try and bribe him with food just so he would come and see her.:)
