Back to Lee Farms

Wahoo! The weather actually cooperated and we were able to go to the pumpkin patch with my mom on the one day we were in town and had time to go! And by cooperated, I mean it drizzled all morning, and let up enough for us to jump in the car in the afternoon. Little muddy, but that didn't stop these 4 cousins from lovin' it!

On the big bouncy thing, M went into wussy mode and spent most of her time like this, so the other girls spent a good chunk of time taking turns dragging her back up.
Hey look! They're actually all on their feet at once!
And now they're all sitting at the same time ... although one of the four is actually sitting on air.

On to the hayride, of course! What's a pumpkin patch without a hayride? And yes, we're having smiling issues at the moment. We have forgotten how. Let's not even talk about school pictures. Oi.

They were just all smiles all day, and even though we were there way longer than we were supposed to be, making my cousin Elena late in leaving for home in Salem (she had to leave during rush hour - ouch), we actually were shuffling the girls along. It's just that there was so much to see! We saw a ton of stinky baby pigs, goats that literally were eating M's shirt while she as laughing her head off, horsies and bunnies from the hayride, baby calves 2-3 weeks old, and fluffy little chicks. One of the time problems was that they got unlimited access to the hay maze. They'd still be there I think if we hadn't made them leave.
See what I mean about the smiling thing? No pic of J because I was the only adult there and she had a tendency to throw the chicks the second I put them in her hand because they might peck her. So I couldn't man the camera and protect the chicks at the same time. As I dragged the girlies away, they all announced that they all want baby chickies of their own. Too bad they grow into chickens.
Picking out pumpkins also took eternity because M had to handle every single one on the farm before being sure she had the right one. You think I'm kidding, don't you. I'm not. Her little cousin even mumbled, M is sure picky, as we followed her around. But it all works out. Thanks Nana!

This seems so much fun!!! I love M's new smile. It is hilarious! Either way, they are all still adorable! We were thinking of going to a pumpkin patch this weekend. It might be postponed though....too many errands. ha
