pumpkin patch {2011}

Friday we went to the pumpkin patch with some of Levi's cousins.

The weather was beautiful and although I still haven't figured out how to go out with both boys and not get completely exhausted, it was such a fun morning.

There is tons to do at this pumpkin patch...most of it having nothing to do with pumpkins. Levi was in heaven. It's so fun to watch him explore and try new things.

You might have noticed that you won't be seeing much of Levi's eyes in this post. He has a new hat. He loves his new hat. And no matter how many times we pull it up so we can see his face, he always pulls it back over his eyes. So don't mess with his hat. I guess that's how he rolls.

Levi was so sad to leave. His mama was ready though. By the time we left I had gone back and forth to the car twice to feed Griffin, changed Griffin's clothes because he decided to have his second blow out in his life at the pumpkin patch, pushed a stroller all around dirt paths that weren't really made for strollers, and jumped my car because it had a dead battery (actually my sister-in-law did because I couldn't remember how to use jumper cables...and thankfully she did). Oh, and Griffin really was there too...I just haven't figured out how to take pictures with two boys yet either. :)

Here he is. Still a cutie-pie. Still super sweet and such a good baby. And now he has officially had his first trip to the pumpkin patch...he just has no pictures to prove it!!

Happy Monday!

It gets easier, one outing at a time you will find a system that works for you. Love the new big boy hat.

Levi's hat makes me smile. Funny boy.

You didn't tell me that you had to jump your car too!!!

And I am impressed that you took any pictures at all on your first big outing with both boys.

You are amazing.:)

Levi is so adorable. My son is the same way with his hat. He has a system. Don't mess with it. Sometimes he'll put items under his hat, and then put it on his head. Makes me laugh thinking of it. Griffin looks like he may have blue eyes. Sometimes it's hard to tell in the beginning.

So fun...boys will be boys and especially at 18 months till about 3 years old.

I always would wear the baby in a baby bjorn so I would take lots of odd angled shots with me and the baby...kinda fun.

I have been there with the county fair and little munchkins...praise God for friends and family that help:)

Love, Katie

That pumpkin patch looks amazing! Your boys are so adorable. I remember our trip to the pumpkin patch last year and my 2nd wasn't quite 2 months old. The only picture we have of his is sleeping in the stroller. It happens to the 2nd. :)

Jess, you and I are both original aren't we with the titles to our blogs! (I posted about our pumpkin patch experience too.) Today was an awful cold day to go so you were lucky going this past week. So glad to hear that Levi is enjoying that book! When I saw it I knew I had to get it for him! Will he be wearing his hat to church next week?

Man little Griffin is so cute! and he does look like Cora. Looks like a fun pumpkin patch. I don't know how to get photos of my girls together either, so I always just have a picture of the baby in a car seat during all of our outings

It gets easier. In no time at all you will be like a pro. Just don't get frustrated and stop going places. We take our kids everywhere and I think it helps them learn how to act in a lot of different situations. Hang in there. Love the hat!

We love Walters! Our annual trip is planned for Wednesday. I don;t think the weather is going to be nearly as cooperative as it was for you though.

So cute. Love it!
My favorite pics are the truck full of pumpkins, and then Griffin at the bottom there, BUT Levi looks so cute in his hat. :)

They are so cute! Love that hat! Love the way he wears it. That boy must know his own mind. Two gets easier. I remember praying for a parking spot by the cart corral just so I could unload them straight into a cart when we went shopping.
Love your photographic eye. You do an amazing job capturing not just your boys, but the feeling of the day.

Oh girlie. It WILL get easier I promise. Don't forget that you tire easily because you are still healing. You'll get there!!! The boys are both so gorgeous. Thanks for updating!!

Totally off topic here... but did you make the flower pillow in the first photograph? And if so, it would be awesome if you would make a tutorial to show us how you did it!

Awww! I remember going to that patch with you when you were pregnant with Cora. And it was *freeeeezing* cold that day.

Looks like Levi had fun!
