Awwwww.... Pumpkin Patch!

Awww.... Pumpkin Patch! We're headed to the Pumpkin Patch (to the tune of Go, Diego, Go's "Rescue Pack").
This song started last year on our visit to the Pumpkin Patch and has continued throughout the year. Only now, Page sings it, too... not just Steve and me. It makes us feel a little less "Nerd Alert" about ourselves.
Before we went, we had to stop and pick up cash. Page took Steve's cash from his hands. She's going to be trouble when she gets older, I think! He was able to swap it out for something a little more her age... a dollar!
We finally got to Pumpkin Patch and Page immediately ran with Daddy to the corn box and the slides! Although, she did spend an insane amount of time on the tractor. I wonder why. She did say that Papa's were better, though. She's such a fan of her Papa and his tractors!
She loved looking at all animals and just running through the "Three Little Pig's Houses" and resting on the straw bales (of course not long enough for a good picture).
After a while Danielle, Derrick, and Ryder met us there (Derrick had to work in the morning). Page had been waiting to show Ryder all the fun stuff to do all morning. Although, by the time they got there, I was pretty exhausted and Page was pretty tired and hungry. We hung out for a while and checked out the baby chicks (Danielle was able to catch a few hilarious pictures). The firsts picture is of me and Page holding the baby chick. The second one is where I'm trying to get Page to look at Danielle for the picture and the chick decided to make a jump for it. Steve and Danielle love my face in the picture... hahahahaha... ok, it's pretty funny. And the chick survived!
After checking out the animals, we decided Page and Ryder might enjoy the train ride. I'm not sure why, but Page always gets the front seat on rides like that. I guess she's just awesome like that. Ryder was going to ride with her, but then decided he wasn't too excited about letting Page do all the driving (she's pretty strong-willed) so he decided to move one car behind her and drive himself. They were so cute and had so much fun! While they were on their fun train ride, Derrick, Danielle, Steve and I were able to sit down and relax and chat. We also snuck some "couple" pictures of us. We did forget to get family pictures, but maybe next time. :)
After the kids returned from their train ride; Danielle, Derrick, and Ryder decided they were going to go through the family corn maze. I didn't think I'd make it, so we decided to head home. (It's a good thing we decided against the corn maze. According to Danielle... it took almost 45 minutes and was NOT really child friendly). We stopped on our way out to pick up a pumpkin! Page told us she wanted "a really HUGE pumpkin". She picked out a moderately big one and a tiny one (a baby one for her brother - how sweet). We then drove home and all collapsed on the couches and ate lunch and then took a nice LONG nap! What a good time we had, though!
