Pumpkin Patch 2015

After we finished with our Christmas pictures and had an awesome big family lunch at Little Mexico, we piled back into the car to head to the pumpkin patch.  Carli spent the time reading and finishing her first chapter book, The Magic Treehouse.  She read half of it outloud but when Ava started playing on her kindle and not listening, Carli punished her by not reading for her to hear what happened next!  Meanwhile, Drew actually slept in the car...it a day full of first!  :)


This year we opted to visit a new pumpkin patch in Latexo, Tx - just outside of Crocket called Covered C Farm.  It was free, and small but the kids had a great time and we had the place mostly to ourselves!


 This was Drew's first trip to the pumpkin patch.  What's fun is that Keith and I could easily make excuses not to go out to a pumpkin patch but the girls expect it now and I guess we've created a bit of a family tradition.  Plus, Uncle Tone has been carving pumpkins for them for going on four years now I think, and we can't let that tradition die either!


 

 The girls convinced Uncle Tone to ride with them on the wagon around the Christmas trees...he was a great sport and took the ride with his knees up to his ears.  He has a great way of making the girls feel special.  :)



 While the girls and Uncle Tone were riding around the farm, Drew was checking out big pumpkins and stealing his Daddy's hat to keep the sun out of his eyes!


 The girls jumped hay bales and even convinced Aunt Lolli to climb on top! 


 
Christmas pictures, Little Mexico and Pumpkin Patch all in one day - we were worn out but Ava wasn't done yet...she came home determined to learn to ride her bike with no training wheels.  She needs a bit more practice but she's got the gear down!  :)
