We have had a busy but fun weekend. Saturday morning started bright and early with our garage sale. I didn’t get rid of nearly as much as I wanted to so most of the rest will be donated. That is one of my many jobs this week to look forward to! While I was busy trying to sell our junk, Lance took Reese and Sam to Reese’s soccer game. She was not happy that I was not going to be there but she survived. I had packed everything back up once they got home and then it was time for a little rest. Saturday night our church was doing a fun little kids event and the theme was Heroes. The kids and I went with some friends and they had a blast. When we walked up there were two fire engines parked out front for the kids to check out. Sam was so excited!
Sunday morning started out a little rough. Sam didn’t sleep well which meant I didn’t sleep well. After several attempts at sleeping with us, I finally broke down and let Sam climb in our bed only to not be able to go back to sleep. I ended up going in to his room to sleep and then both kids were up around 6:30 fighting in our bed. That turned Lance in to a grump and that is how our day started. While we were getting ready for church Sam had a complete meltdown and cried for about 30 minutes. By the time he was done, I had completely forgotten what started it all. We were so flustered trying to get out of the door. We got to church about ten minutes late but I think we all enjoyed our time there and kind of recharged for the day. From church we headed to Cagle’s Family Farm with some friends and we all had fun.
We got to the farm shortly after it opened and it was perfect timing. There were not a lot of people there yet so we did everything we wanted with out much of a wait. The girls wanted to ride the ponies. This was Reese’s first time doing this and she seemed to enjoy it.
Sam was not interested in the ponies at all so he jumped on the jumpy pillow instead. It was nice that he was able to jump on the big kids one because of the small crowd. Later in the day there were too many people for him so he jumped on the little kid jumpy.
After the ponies and tons of jumping, we headed to the corn maze. The kids had a lot of fun navigating our way through the maze.
From the maze, we headed to the dairy farm tour. The tour included seeing a cow being milked, a hay ride that took you out to a field to see the dogs herd sheep and cows, and an area where we could feed cows and pigs.
Most of the calves were not interested in the food.
However, these precious little piglets loved every minute of it. They loved snacking on our treats.
Once the tour was over, everyone was given a little small pumpkin. Each of the kids picked theirs out and one for Lance and me. Before we left they decided that Baby Gummy Bear needed one too. They were so sweet to think of our little pumpkin! So now we have five small pumpkins for our expanding family.
We decided not to buy any big pumpkins this time. However, the kids were very excited about these huge pumpkins sitting outside the pumpkin area.
After our fun at the farm, we headed home to rest a little and had a pretty laid back afternoon. Now to get ready to start the week. I have so much to do in so little time before the baby comes. This week is bound to be crazy!
