Fall Activites

The last 3 weekends we have been out and about enjoying this beautiful fall weather. We've been to Mother Nature's Farm, DeWitt Stables and the Halloween Spooktacular Balloon Event. The girls have had a blast!

Our first pumpkin patch was Mother Nature's Farm and it was a lot of fun.
I love my little pumpkins!
Aside from the bounce house, I think the girls favorite part was feeding the animals carrots.
Or maybe it was decorating their pumpkins with stickers. Haylee covered just about every square inch of her pumpkin.
Natalee slapped on a few stickers and was ready for more fun!
Then it was time for the hay maze, tractor ride and face painting.
We always have such a fun time at Mother Nature's Farm!
Our 2nd pumpkin patch was DeWitt Stables.
We went last year for the 1st time and loved it. It's different from the rest of the pumpkin patches because a) you get to ride horses/ponies
and b) you get to touch all the animals and not just feed them or look at them through a fence.

The girls loved the train/barrel rides too. As soon as they got back from ride #1 Natalee said "again!".
The pumpkin patch was lacking a variety of pumpkins but we weren't there for pumpkins so we didn't mind. We loved the hay ride to the pumpkin patch though!

The girls also went in the bounce house and ran around the corn maze. Once again, a fun time was had by all!

This past weekend we took the girls to the Halloween Spooktacular Balloon Event which we've never been too. The girls dressed up in their costumes and I thought they looked so frickin' adorable.
Natalee is a batarina.
Haylee is a witch and her dress lights up.
 It was a neat experience for the girls to walk up to hot air balloons to trick-or-treat.
But aside from the trick-or-treating there wasn't much for the girls to do. We ate, walked around the vendor booths and both girls survived a trip to the porta potty with help from Super Mom and her awesome sanitary skills!

Next month is going to be the calm before the December "activities" storm. Can't wait!!
