Besides fun photos, the Pumpkin Patch was another first for our family of five... it was the first time, EVER, that DB and I packed up all three kids and drove out of our driveway together. We even had to get a third car seat :) We had three infant/baby seats, but there was never a time we used them all at the same time. And now, all of my "babies" are too big for them! A friend gave us her two toddler seats and they've worked perfectly because in the past we have either taken George and Olivia OR Samuel. Not this day!
Olivia and I went to pick out the 3rd seat the day before our adventure - turns out it was a bad idea to let her sample the seats. When I had chosen the seat and it was time to get back in the cart, she threw her first in-store temper tantrum. It was a doozey! I tried to keep shopping, thinking the crying and screaming would stop, but I was wrong. Of course, as soon as we left the fit was over... such a stinker. I just hope the other parents in the store didn't think I was terrible - I was holding back laughter the entire time she was throwing the fit... partially nervous laughter, and partially because I was impressed with her determination :)
On the other hand, when we got to the Pumpkin Patch, I was hugely grateful it was not just the five of us! Ha ha! These babies are crazy! Having Omi, Kristen, Josh, and Rachel to help chase them and pose them was awesome.
The family :) I love the black and white - I feel like things appear so calm this way. Not really sure why :)
No worries, Olivia's got this one! George and Olivia petting one of the horses. Great outing topped off with horses, pigs, and goats!

Olivia was very focused on her punkins... correct, there is no "m" in punkin :)
