Kara told us to kiss, and of course, Grant tried to oh-so-romantically suck my face off. This is the picture where I'm saying EWWW, GROSS!
Here's some of the kids and me:
My handsome little man:
And here's all three of my sweeties:
Here's Hallie (the Pothiers' daughter) and Cole, who usually fight like cats and dogs, actually sharing a cute moment together.
After our little photo session, we drove maybe 100 yards to the pumpkin patch. Since it was so close, we didn't buckle any of the kids. So, of course, Ava stood up and turned around while we were driving. She thought she was so hilarious! She kept laughing at herself and how funny she was standing up in her car seat! It was adorable.
When we got to the pumpkin field we all were walking around looking for a good pumpkin when suddenly, we heard an amazing whooshing (yes, that's the technical term) sound and saw hundreds of birds rise from the field and take off into the sky. We hadn't even seen them there. It was the coolest sight - the picture doesn't do it justice.
Grant, helped the kids find just the right pumpkin:
Claire and Cole each got to pick one:
Ava was bundled and snuggled during the whole adventure, thanks to Dad:
There was a spooky tree nearby that I just had to take some pictures of. Doesn't it look like the perfect Halloween tree?
Then, we went apple picking. While the kids and Grant struggled with the ladders, I stole Ava to take some fall shots:
All in all it was a great time. Afterwards we stopped in the little store there and the kids played with some fruit long enough for me to get a picture:
Kara and me:
Then, we made carmel apples with the apples we picked. It made us miss Kerstin and Wade!
Yes, they were a little messy:
Fall is such a fun time!!!!!
