The Fog Willow Pumpkin Patch

We had such a sweet, perfect Fall day on Sunday. 

We headed off to the Fog Willow Pumpkin Farm, which was about 30 minutes away from home. We invited three of our family friends to join (all the girls go to school with June) and they could all join!

This pumpkin patch was perfect. There was a structure made out of hay bales to climb on (complete with a goat run/track suspended off the ground surrounding it! A playground, pony rides, a petting zoo. Food, tractor rides plus the pumpkins to select (if not actually pick). In the morning it was pleasantly cool, especially in the shade, but it started warming up quickly. That was the only bad part...that we had all dressed for the cool morning and were surprisingly warm by the time the afternoon rolled around. 

Still, it was so fun. So cute to see June and her friends playing together, with their different personalities and little relationship dynamics. Bennett did really well, napping on the way there and on the way home and being happy in between. 

So without further ado, I present roughly one million photos.

(Caption: "June! Stop Bennett from eating that leaf!")

They wanted to put their heads in this way since they couldn't reach them from the other side.

After some short naps at home (a little too short for my liking!), we spent the evening at home. Bennett has been crawling up a storm, so he's increasingly happy to scoot around the house and explore things. There was even time for Michael and me to veg out together on the bed while we watched both kids play nicely on the floor...a rarity on most days. We decided grocery shopping could wait another day, popped a frozen pizza in the oven and hung out some more before bedtime. 

Really awesome day, y'all.
