pumpkin patch comedy.

We went to the pumpkin patch on today with Gran V, Aunt Kelly, Bryleigh and Aaron. We had the best time. The patch was super close to our house (in Sardis, AL), so it was an easy trip on the babies (and on us!). We got there soon after it opened, and even though I thought it was going to be really crowded, it was actually wasn't. We were thankful!

As soon as we got there, I thought it would be best if I wore Ford, but it has been so long since he and I did any baby wearing, so I wasn't sure how it would go. Turns out, he lasted a pretty long time in his carrier, and I finally took him out because he wanted to play on the playground. I love baby wearing, so it was fun to know that he actually will tolerate it, even though he's so big now.

After we got our tickets, we did the duck races first. Bryleigh and Watts had a blast racing their little duckies. Watts was pumped about the water, of course. Ford loved chewing on his duck more than racing it, though.

After we played with the ducks for a bit, we let the girls play on the playground. Watts loved every single second of it. She is really into what she refers to as "playtrounds" these days, so this was right up her alley. She and Bryleigh played and played. Ford had fun, too. He especially loved the horse swings.

Watts saw the cow train rides while she was playing on the playground, and after much deliberation, we decided to let Watts ride it with Gran V. Gran V said she had a blast on it, which I am glad because we weren't sure if she'd like it or not.

While we were waiting on the tractor to take us to the pumpkin patch, we played on the playground a little more. Because PLAYTROUND.

We rode the tractor trailer to the pumpkin patch, and I had talked to Watts about what we were going to do once we got to the patch. I told her we'd pick out one pumpkin then ride back to the playground.  After we got off of the trailer, Watts and I walked over, and she picked up the first little pumpkin she could find. She walked over to Mat while he was standing beside the trailer, and she took that little pumpkin in her little, grimy, chubby baby hands, and she chunked it up onto that trailer. After that, she got up in the trailer, took a seat, and she was ready to go. The whole thing was very utilitarian for her. She got her pumpkin, and she was ready to head out. Sweet little girl is all work and no play when it comes to things like that.

I got to help Ford pick out his pumpkin, then we all loaded up, and went back to the playground area. After Daddy and Aaron shot a few corn cannons, we made a couple more photos, and we left for lunch. It was such a fun day, and I am glad Watts could spend some time with her cousins.

Happy Fall, y'all.
