Trip to the pumpkin patch

It would be really easy to fill each weekend with chores and errands and not make the time to do fun family things and create special memories. Recently it dawned on me that we have to make a conscious decision and effort to plan special outings or we'll easily get into the trap of just trying to conquer our never ending to-do list.

Today we went to a local pumpkin patch to try to get into the fall spirit. I'll admit that's a challenge when it is 90 degrees outside and extremely humid. Lindy enjoyed looking at the pumpkins, riding on a little "train," and being outside. I think we discovered she may be allergic to hay. Later in the day her eyes were completely red and swollen, her mouth was swollen, and she was quite itchy. A little dose of Benadryl seemed to cure her, though.

Here are some pictures of our morning at the pumpkin patch.

You are beautiful! You know I mostly check the odd and ends blog. I need to come here more. Lindy is SO cute and I LOVE this slide show. It is so adorable.

Kate has that same shirt but it has been so HOT! It is supposed to cool off here tomorrow so maybe she can wear it.
