We made our first visit to a local pumpkin patch and had a great time! Eli wasn’t really interested in story time so while the other kids sat and listened like angels we went and found leaves and acorns. Ha! Oh well. Maybe someday he will sit still. For now I will just enjoy the adventurous side of him.
We went with the local MOPS group and there were around 30 of us in total. There were goats, donkeys, a corn maze for bigger folks, a straw maze for the little ones and a great hey ride! The hay ride was for sure Eli’s favorite part. He was in total awe. Just sat looking around and putting hay in his mouth like a little country boy. It was so funny. While other kids tried to eat it Eli just held it in his mouth like a little old 80 year old man sitting on his porch in south Alabama. Super cute.
The best part for me was getting to spend time with my newest friend Laura! Her daughter Emma is close to the same age as Eli and I just love Laura’s company! She is a great mom and super creative which I love. Also, totally small world I knew her husband from high school back in Kentucky. Totally crazy story.
We bought two pumpkins and a really pretty white mum. They are now hanging out on our front porch. We liked it so much we took my dad back the next day to show him. They had the largest pumpkins I had ever seen with my own eyes. You could get the big ones for $50! No thanks!
