pumpkin patch

We spent the day at Looper's Pumpkin Patch just north of Kansas City. It was a fabulous time together as a family. The best part was that it was FREE. You only had to pay for any pumpkins you wanted to buy. It was perfect for our young family. They provided Hay-rack rides, train rides, triclycles and wagons to play with, kittens to pet and dogs to play with. As we were driving away Jonah said, "That was SO much fun!" As parents, we consider that a successful family outing.

apple orchard

We had a blast when our playgroup went to Aldredge Apple Orchard here in Kansas City. My kids love apples anyway, but once they spotted trees with endless amounts of apples, they just couldn't get enough. They chased the chickens and ducks, fed the goats, took a hayrack ride, picked apples, pet the kittens, had a picnic and just enjoyed a beautiful day! Thanks to all my friends who helped me handle my three little ones on my own. We'll have to go back as a family with Chris so he can see first hand how much fun we had!
