A Fun Fall Day!



Today was a pretty fun filled day. Sean had to work today, so he didn't get to join in on the fun, but we still had a pretty good day. We all have been sick the last few days, and today everyone was feeling well again, so we headed out and did a little shopping, went out to lunch, and then went to the pumpkin patch. The weather was just beautiful today, which made our day even nicer.

The pumpkin patch we went to was actually at an apple orchard. They had hayrides with a little tour of the orchard and information about the property and how they pick and pack the apples. It was kind of interesting. They also had a big bump and jump type thing that was shaped like an apple for the kids to jump in, and a guy who was doing face painting. This guy was the most talented face painter I have ever seen! He did a sort of airbrushing on the face, kind of as a foundation, and then pained designs on top of that. The girls waned to get theirs gone so I agreed, and we got in line. Well after waiting for an hour, I decided I was being a patient mom, and as the baby (who had not had a nap all day) became grouchier and grouchier, and another hour passed I became less and less patient. So after waiting there for TWO HOURS we decided that face painting probably wasn't all that important. So we walked around for at least another 35 to 45 min. picking out our pumpkins, buying fresh apples, corn on the cob, and apple cider. When we left I looked at the face painting line again to see how much it had moved, and at least 10 people would have still been ahead of us, so I was glad we had given up and were headed home! So other than the 2 hour wait in line, it was a really fun day.

I can't beleive that you lasted that long in the line. Imagine if you had waited 'till you got there, then you'd have had to wait through each of your kids getting painted. Wow! It does sound like a lot of fun, I bet my kids would love that!

Wow, that sounds like SOOOOOOOOOO much fun, I wouldn't have even asked to get my face painted, especially if the line was ALREADY going that slow.

So glad you guys had a nice day..it has been kinda rainy here lately, so no fun in the sun in my neck of the woods.

Sounds like you guys have been having lots of fun lately. I'm glad your books came in. Maybe Alyssa and Shelbi aren't quite as glad?? LOL. We really enjoyed your visit. I do think the girls had a lot of fun at the slumber party. Well, I know I haven't been posting in a long, long time, but now I've posted a couple of consecutive ones, so you can start checking my blog again! :)
