Pumpkin Patch

This past Saturday we fulfilled a family tradition of herding the whole family(16 in total) and went to the pumpkin patch. We decided to try a new one out this year and were so glad we did. We went to Arlie Hills Farm http://www.airliehills.com/activities.html and this place was so fun for the kids and us adults! Seeing the kids run back in forth from all the fun things with huge smiles on their faces makes you just smile and think all is right in life. We rode the hay ride to the pumpkin field and once we stop the kids were off picking out their perfect pumpkin. You can't help but laugh as you see them trying to carry this huge oversize pumpkin back to the wagon. To end our adventure we all sat on the hay bails and drank apple cider and ate donuts. It's the little joys in life that make it all worth it. Can not wait to go back and do it all again next year!

Me a Blogger???

Here goes nothing...my 1st blog post! Why a blog some might ask? I havent figured that question out just yet. At the request of a dear friend to start one and after deliberating a few weeks I gave in. I have read many different type of blogs and must say there plenty out there. Some that make no sense, others that just give way too much personal information and drama and there's the ones I like to read....Mommy blogs! My blog will be an insight into my world of being a mom and wife and a friend. I'm still working out the kinks on everything and getting the hang of "blogging" so bare with me....
