Pumpkin Patch!

We spent an afternoon at a local pumpkin patch with my brother in law, sister in law, & our 2 nieces. It was a relaxing afternoon & such a joy to see our kids enjoying spending time with each other. 

Here are some of my favorite moments from our afternoon... 

 There were sunflowers everywhere at this farm!! I absolutely loved it! 
Sunflowers can always make me smile!

 The kids enjoyed jumping in a cotton trailer & racing around the playground!

 These two melt my heart.. they sat like this the entire hayride to the pumpkin patch! 
Who would ever guess they have been separated for the past 2 years?!

Searching for the perfect pumpkin!!

While the kids were searching for their pumpkins, I was admiring the rows of sunflowers!!
I found a few bug friends... 

Before the ride back from the patch, we were each allowed to pick a sunflower to take home!!
My husband was super sweet & helped me find the perfect flower!!

 The littlest cousin searching for her flower... oh how i love her sweet, sassy personality!!

After a great afternoon, we came home to join in the fun of a pumpkin carving party!! 
We enjoyed drinking homemade hot cocoa, pumpkin spice s'mores bars (made by yours truly!), and spending time with my sisters (& their friends!). Family time is always good for the soul!

Happy Halloween!!
