Headin' out to the pumpkin patch, the pumpkin patch

Headin' out to the pumpkin patch is exactly what Meme, Catherine Ellis and Caroline did last Thursday on their first school field trip of the year (job duty called for Mommy and Daddy; we were so sad).  Once again Meme saved the day and chaperoned both girls to The Great Pumpkin Patch in Clanton, AL.  I hear it's a sight worth seeing.  The girls had a blast and Meme swore she did too - however, sources tell me that it was quite the labor of love.  Meme is the BEST!

I'll let the pictures do the talking - Mom took some, Caroline's teacher took some and some of our parent friends also took pictures of our children all while trying to keep up with their own - again, we have the best village around!

Some of C and CE's School buddies - C was much more interested in the pumpkin
Pumpkins galore ...C was determined to bring a big one home

One of CE's all time favorite activities - bouncing in the bouncy! 
 Love this picture her teacher captured!

Ha - love those smiles :)

CE, Caroline and Daelyn (one of CE's classmates)

Wagon ride with Henry - H and his grandmother were lifesavers for my mother - wagon riding is much better than carrying a toddler around a huge "pumpkin patch"

Choo Choo Train Ride - the girls are in the first car with Henry

C is thrilled with feeding the animals - NOT!  I'm told about three seconds
 after this she started screaming because they scared her. 

CE on the other hand seemed to love the animals

 First pony ride - thank you Kitty for capturing this!

What's a "pumpkin patch" without hay bales?

Sweet girl! 

Typical for Caroline she was much too busy to even look at the camera -
 there were things that needed destructing!

Let's see if I can tear this scarecrow down with one swift pull

CE posing - can you tell she's had a picture taken almost every day of her life?

Still determined to get a big pumpkin home - if only she was strong enough to lift it!

Wonder Meme and her grandbabies - you can tell everyone is 
about to fall over dead from all the fun!


  1. GREAT pictures -- hooray for Meme!! (the rest of mine are still on my camera . . . oops)

  2. That looks like a fun pumpkin patch! and yes your mama is for sure a trooper keeping up w/both by herself, not an easy task! The girls are so, so precious, just getting so big!
