Grama and Grampa Visit -- Pumpkin Patch!

We also had the pleasure of Grama and Grampa joining us for our annual visit to the Big Orange Pumpkin Patch!  We loved having them with us this year!

and here we go...

silly boys are so excited to be here

picking out their favorite pumpkins already

feeding the animals is still one of their favorite parts

we were all cracking up when the boys let go of their feed cups and the goats were going crazy trying to get every last crumb!!!

I heart this family
(Adeline, Ben, Mario)

the hayride is a-comin'

having some fun on the hayride

please stay little and silly forever

back home, grampa helps anthony with a project in the garage

Sunday after church, we went out to eat at Babe's
(per grampa's request, of course!)
we headed outside for a few pics

what can i say???
they love the spotlight

climbing on the train engine

anthony wanted to stand next to it

they loved checking it out--
and grampa knows so much about trains!
they had fun asking him about every.single.part  ;)

people often ask me if they are always this happy...

...and my response is, "why, yes, as a matter of fact they are!"
(it's true!  we have our moments, but overall, these two love life and bring so much joy to those around them)

Thanks, Grama and Grampa, for hanging with us all weekend and for being such troopers bearing through all we had going on.  We know it was busy, but we sure loved having you be a part of it!  Can't wait to see you soon!
