Lots of fun on the jumping pillow
The biggest corn pit I have ever seen.
So typical of these two....

For at least a week now, we have had a streak of absolutely gorgeous weather so we are taking advantage of it before winter arrives. We made our annual fall trip to an apple orchard over the weekend. This orchard is similar to the one we went to a few weeks ago, but with different things to do. The boys loved it. We also went to pick out pumpkins. I told the boys at the first orchard that we would pick out pumpkins when we went with Daddy. Best decision ever. There is no way to describe the chaos as we picked out our pumpkins at the end of a fairly long day filled with A LOT of outdoor activity. Each of the boys ran in opposite directions bringing at least a dozen pumpkins of all shapes and sizes over the wagon while John and I tried to herd them like cattle and narrow down the selection to a reasonable number. I am not sure how long it took us to get things organzied, weigh the pumpkins, and get three tired boys to the car, but it seemed like forever. Overall, it was a great trip and everyone slept very well that night. The boys loved the Maze, the animals to pet, the cow train ride, jumping pillow (similar to a trampoline but a lot more fun and more work), corn pit, and the caramel apples too.
This picture above was taken by a neighbor. These are the boys we play with in the backyard on most nights or afternoons. Lots of fun! Note the backwards baseball helmet on Aiden and the hockey helmet on the end, but they look pretty serious.
After our first trip last weekend to the apple orchard we go to every year, we decided to try another smaller pumpking patch and corn maze this week. They have so many of these in Minnesota every fall, but many of them are really crowded on the weekends so its often hard to do anything when you are there. The boys had a blast and were pretty tired afterwards. I am posting just a couple pictures from our visit.
The boys loved this giant pumpkin that you could jump inside of
Spider web for climbing
Aiden asked me to take a picture of his head inside the pumpkin
These little cars were so fun to ride. I rode them with the boys. Aiden wasn't quite able to peddle it, but he rode in my lap. And those little things are fast!
We have competitions over just about anything. Seriously, anything. The intensity that the boys had with getting "their duck" down this little track to the other end before their brothers was crazy. We eventually had to move on to something else!
