After we visited with chickens, played in the sand and ventured into a couple of mazes yesterday, we finally made it to the pumpkin patch. Which really is just a whole bunch of pumpkins lying in a field. We got there just as one school field trip was leaving and just before another was arriving. It was perfect timing, as we had the whole field to ourselves.
Sweet Pea loved the little plastic house.
The slide was a little bit wet so she came back down the steps.
She really enjoyed playing on the tractor.
So did Finn!
They played and used their imaginations.
The breeze makes it look like they were actually moving.
I loved how she thought it was important to pretend to press the gas pedals so that she could pretend to move.
These two little children had a marvelous morning out. I even bought them hotdogs for lunch because I knew that Finn needed to go home and have a nap, but we were having so much fun that none of us wanted to leave.
We stopped on the way out so we could have one more peek at the chickens. We really appreciated the sunshine......it was even warm.

I love this little nursery that is just across the river from me. The best part is all of the free activities. We left with a few little gourds for the children to play with, but that's because the $5 hayride can be credited towards anything in the store. They are both 3-and-under, so it was only my hayride that cost any money. But then again, not really.
Sweet Pea really enjoyed playing in the hay maze.
"C'mon Grandma, follow me."
And then she followed Finn.
This was a favourite place for Finn. They both really liked it but he actually had to be coaxed to go outside to check out the other activities. Sweet Pea was excited to go find more fun activities whereas he was being a typical two year old boy who wanted to dig in the sand.
We found a "cedar maze."
It was a bit muddy but we were all wearing our rubber boots.
I love her determined little face.
We wandered around in here for 15 minutes or more. They never did find the exit, but it was lots of fun trying. We eventually went out the entrance and headed over to play in the pumpkin patch.

We went to Port Kells Nursery this morning.
We were very spontaneous as it was pouring when went into Music Class, and it had stopped by the time we came out. Lukas and Preston were sick, and all I had were two children so we headed across the bridge. Sweet Pea loved the chickens!
She kept saying, "Hello Chickaletta!" She's from the Paw Patrol show if anyone is wondering.
Finn was much more apprehensive. He liked them but was more cautious.
See how she gets right down as close as she can, while he is a couple of steps back. She would have stayed there all morning.
Looking and talking to the chickens. It doesn't really take much to entertain a two and a three year old.
The chickens kept coming over and listening to Sweet Pea. I think that they liked her as much as she liked them!

Three weeks ago today, we were at Disneyland. It was so hot! I just got back from taking Mason to school and it's raining so hard sideways that we are all soaking wet. The wind blew Sweet Pea and Finn over because they were both carrying umbrellas. I miss the sunshine. And Hubby says he didn't think he would ever say it, but he misses the heat. The heat felt better on his back.

Our California vacation is becoming a distant memory so it was nice to go over to #3's house this morning and look at some pictures that SIL took. I only had Finn this morning so he enjoyed his social time. And I enjoyed my visit with #3.......I know that I see her all the time but we really don't have a lot of chances to actually talk. Always so many distractions.....it was so nice as we were able to have a conversation.

Well, that weekend went by incredibly fast! They usually do, but this last one just seems to have gone by faster than others. We went out for dinner and shopping on Friday night with Miracle #4. We went to one of our favourite toy stores and he was impressed. He even sat down with a couple of Star Wars characters so I could take his picture.

My favourite grandson had a lacrosse game at noon and it was so sunny and warm. I just looked at my weather app and it is currently 17 degrees outside. It was probably closer to 13 or 14 degrees at noon, but it sure is a nice day to be outdoors.

We celebrated two very special boys tonight, because Lucas turned 7 today and Isaac turned 4 on Tuesday. My niece had their family party this evening and it was stupendous.
Here are the birthday boys opening their presents. My sister took these pictures and shared them with me. Thanks so much to my sister Katherine!
Isaac was listening to what his Mom was telling him.
Happy 4th Birthday!
Happy 7th Birthday!
Yes, he really did have a poop party. Because it's his favourite word right now and just seems so 'four year old boy.' I love his cupcakes, and his t-shirt.....they were really cute! I chuckled at Baby as she wanted no part of a poop cupcake. She waited very patiently for Lucas's Star Wars birthday cake to be cut!
Making his wish and getting ready to blow out his candles!

The sun is back today and it is only 11 degrees but we won't complain. It's just so nice when the sun is out!
