Pumpkin Patch

We went to Roca Berry Farm for the first time as a family. Amelia went to a pumpkin patch last year at daycare, but this was the first time for the rest of us!! A good time was had by all!!!

Amelia LOVED these big air pillows they had for jumping! (I liked them, too, but fortunately no one got a picture of me jumping!)

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe...

They had an area full of corn kernels (like a sandbox), it was pretty fun until P tried to eat the kernels! Amelia also enjoyed taking pocketful of kernels over to the pigs and feeding them!

She attempted a "corn angel" (only in Nebraska....!)

Happy boy!!

The pigs (she's probably feeding them pilfered corn)....

My little pumpkins with some pumpkins

Pierson LOVED this slide and would squeal and jump up and down in my arms when we hit the stairs to do it again!

P was ready to go home!!

We are in trouble....

*We were visiting family in Kansas a couple of weeks ago. Amelia has been digging for gold in her nose so much lately--we struggle with it and trying to keep her fingers outta there! Well, it was a typical day where we had to keep reminding her to stop mining, and that evening, I caught her with her hand in my Mom's new cup of ice water. She was trying to fetch a piece of ice.
Me: Amelia, get your hand out of grandma's water! That's rude to stick your
hand in other people's drinks!! Mom, you'll need to get new water, she
had her hand in it.
Amelia: Uh, Mom, the boogers are on THIS hand (holding up the hand that was
not in Mom's cup!)

I never even said anything about boogers on her hand or in mom's water!! Clearly she thought this through.... clearly, we're in trouble if she's this smart already....

*Amelia having a conversation with my mom:
Amelia: My daddy is 21 years old.
My Mom: No, he's 31 years old.

After arguing back and forth with mom for a bit:
Amelia: I'm going to ask my mom....

She comes back to my mother:
Amelia: Well. I guess I was wrong then.
