The Pumpkin Patch

We pumpkin patched over the weekend. 

On the way to the patch I kept Caroline entertained by reading her every pumpkin book we owned smushed in the back seat between the kiddos (per usual!). So when we arrived she was out of control at the sight of the first pumpkin. She had to pick up every.single.pumpkin on the farm and squealed for a solid two hours.

This was our second trip to Hodges Family Farm. We love this patch because it has so many activities from hayrides to farm animals. Last year we brought Caroline (post here) and it was such a different experience this time with a wild toddler.

Thomas partied the whole time too.

Just kidding. Thomas snoozed. So we kept him bundled inside the JJ Cole Urban Bundleme (tucked under the softest, furriest little hat) until it got warm enough to carry him. We used this amazing thermaplush pocket of a blanket with Caroline and she loved it so much that we got a second for Thomas. Rather than hassling with bulky blankets the BundleMe slips
right into the stroller or car seat {around the straps} and zips up to protect baby
against wind while the luxuriously soft inner thermaplus keeps in the

The farm animals were a big hit this year. We’ve been working on the “what does the (animal) say?” game with Caroline and so far she’s really only nailed the cow and dog so she mooooo’d at every animal. We’ve got a little bit of work to do.

  You know what else was a big hit? Running into her best friend Austin. This love affair has been brewing since they were practically zero.

We love watching these two hilariously laugh over something nonsensical for minutes at a time. They are so awesome together.

No cooperation for a family picture when there’s five acres of pumpkins to touch!


 Proud pumpkin owner right there y’all.

And a photobomb…

It was the very best day!

    She is such a cutie patootie! Sophie had more fun sitting than touching the pumpkins when we went. there's always hope for next year. I cannot believe how adorable both of them are, and they are really starting to look similar. I would definitely say whomever you think Caroline looks like Thomas does too.liz @ sundays with sophie
