Annual Pumpkin Patch Trip

Earlier this month we went to our favorite pumpkin patch with my sister and her family.  Tim, Sammy and I got there early so we had time to go through the corn maze.  This was a first for Sammy and I think he loved the idea of it.. not so much the getting lost several times ;-)

Next up we hit the huge slide that is built into a hill.  The boys went down by themselves for the first time ever.  They actually did this several times and LOVED it.  I caught a few cute shots!

Do you think Sammy liked it?

Sammy doing what he does best.. feeding animals.  They were actually out of feed.  So Tim showed Sammy how to pick it up off the ground.  He then made sure each goat got some!

The cow train.. Sammy rode by himself for the first time ever.. and didn’t ask to go again.. apparently he likes sitting on a comfy lap then getting bounced around on his own:

Sling shots were a hit with everyone.  Tim patiently took all of the kids in for their own turn.  Clare and Chris were back at the car with Grace (she had a tough day).  Sammy and Ellie waiting for their turn:  DSC_0296 Ellie getting a turn:
