This weekend, we met up with some friends and took our kids to the pumpkin patch in a nearby town. It turned out to be a really cold day- very gloomy and raw. It wasn't actually raining, but it looked very threatening. All the kids cute clothes and our coordinating outfits were covered up by hats, coats, blankets, and, in Hudson's case, non-matching sweatpants.
At first we put him a wheelbarrow, but the metal was really cold, so just pushed him around in his stroller.
This place is one big photo op, and my goal was to get a picture for his birthday invites and a family picture for Christmas cards. Didn't have any that stood out as being exceptional, but he looked really cute with the fall backgrounds.
I thought the wagon pictures were especially cute.
Hudson, Reese, and Jackson
This picture cracks me up! His outfit had gotten hitched up and was too tight around the middle. He looks like a mad little sausage!
Reese and Hudson. As always, it's hard to get them all looking in the same direction.
Sometimes grass freaks him out, but looking at this happy smile, I guess he was OK with it today.
Ride 'em, cowboy!
He looks so big, yet so little. I had to put these ugly black sweatpants on him as it got colder so his little legs wouldn't freeze.

Cute family picture.

The petting zoo was something else. I felt like we had been transferred to the backwoods circa 1850. The man with the pygmy goats and bunnies was very nice and held up a baby so that Hudson could pet it. He had been quietly checking things out the whole time, but he really opened up and talked to the goat! It was gross, but I let him touch it.
At the end, we took a hayride around the whole thing. Very appropirate in length for the babies, but older kids would have been bored. Here's a picture of all the kiddies: Reese, Kennedy, Hudson, Jackson, and Brooklyn. As usual, Hudson has no sense of personal space, Jackson wants down, and they're all looking in different directions! All in all, it was a fun day.
