Our Weekend

We started off our weekend by heading to a local pumpkin patch/corn maze on Friday night to meet up with some of our playgroup friends! We decided to go that evening so that the daddies could go with us after work. Brody was so excited to have Josh there!I was so glad Josh was there to join in on the fun, too! I also loved having the extra help since I am still getting used to taking 2 kids places. :)The first thing we did when we got there was let the kids ride the cow train. This is the entire cow train. Brody really enjoyed riding it! He kept asking if he could ride it again!After the ride was over and the tractor was parked, the nice tractor driver let all the kids taking turns sitting on the tractor. Brody LOVED getting to do this, especially since he is slightly obsessed with tractors. He was pretty devastated that he couldn't drive the tractor.He was sobbing at this point. Poor guy!He even had real tears. Josh helped take Brody's mind off of the tractor by taking him to shoot the corn cannon. He had a great time sending corn cobs flying across the field! Jillian just hung out in her car seat in the stroller. Sweet girl. We rode the hayride to the pumpkin patch and then headed home. We didn't do the corn maze. It would have been a little scary trying to not lose our toddlers in a huge corn maze! :) Here is our family before we left. We had such a great time! My family came over after we got home that evening and brought Jillian's cake for her one month cake party!

Josh let me sleep in a little Saturday morning while he took care of Jillian and fed Brody breakfast. He even brought me breakfast in bed! Sweet guy! That afternoon, we went to a birthday party to celebrate Noah's First Birthday. The party was at their house. It was a Halloween/costume themed party for the kids. Helga had it decorated so cute! There was great food and they had a tv outside so we could all watch the Razorback game. There was also a little area set up where you could paint pumpkins. It was really fun!
Their house is an old farm house and there are horses right beside their property. The owners were out riding the horses so they brought the horses over to the fence so the kids could pet them. Zach and Brody really liked the horses! This silly boy didn't want to keep his Halloween costume on at the party. We spent Saturday evening at home watching the game and hanging out! It was nice to not have anything to do.

We went to church Sunday morning. It took all of our energy to get up and get ready after the long night we had with Jillian. I got close to 3 hours of sleep and Josh got about the same amount. I think it's funny I bragged on her this weekend about how well she was starting to sleep and then she decided to not sleep on Saturday night. Doesn't that seem to always happen? Ha! Sunday evening we had The Greens over for dinner. We love getting to have dinner with them every other week! They are such wonderful friends and we enjoy spending time with them. Ryan and Josh have known each other since preschool and have been friends all through school. It's fun that our kids get to be great friends now as they grow-up! Payne and Jillian had a date in their bouncy seats. :) I guess Brody got jealous that he didn't have a bouncy seat so he sat in Payne's when he wasn't using it. Ha! Pictures like this remind me how big Brody has gotten over the past several months! Brody loves Payne!!! When he talks about him he says, "my Payne!"We have a fun, busy week ahead with something planned almost every day! Maybe we can get a little rest this week, too! ;)

Oh my word, Jennifer, those pictures of Brody crying over the tractor are so funny, but so pitiful! Haha, but they made me laugh really hard. What a neat little cow ride, too. Neil would LOVE that place!

That looks like so much fun! Which pumpkin patch was it? We are wanting to go to one here in NWA, but are not sure which ones are good.
