I am finally getting around to posting about our trip to the pumpkin patch! We went last Sunday. It was very cold and damp but we bundled up and had a great time anyway.

Samantha spent most of the time bundled and snuggled up in her stroller. She
fell asleep shortly after this photo was taken.

Momma & Gabrielle being silly.

Gabrielle & Daddy did the hay maze a few times.

What a difference a couple of years make! In 2007, we put Gabrielle on the pony during her first trip to Hill Ridge. She never cried but looked stunned the entire time. Last year she had no desire to ride the ponies. This year she asked to ride the ponies and loved every minute of it. This could have been her favorite part of the day. She had a smile on her face the entire time!

The Hill Ridge growth chart may not be super accurate but you can still see how much she has grown over the past couple of years. Samantha was sleeping or else I would have held her up to the sign. We'll have to start the tradition with her next year.

We had to wake Samantha up for the hay ride to the pumpkin patch. I think she was in shock from the cold!

We picked out some good pumpkins I think.

The first thing Gabrielle said after finding her pumpkin was "Can I eat it now?" I explained to her that we have to cut open and cook the pumpkin. Now she wants to make pumpkin pie out of it!

I didn't notice the tear until I was downloading the pictures from the camera to the computer.
She was not crying or sad, just cold!

There were plenty of other people around so I'm not sure why I didn't think to ask someone to take a picture of the four of us together. Oh well!!
