Oma's Pumpkin Patch

Over a week for another real post?!?! See, I told you this no napping thing was going to suck...but at least I don't have to suffer all alone. Yes you all have to suffer with my lack of posts due to my recent lack of alone time.

Anyway, this week we went to Oma's Pumpkin Patch and the kids had a blast! Of course right after like 10 photos my camera died but luckily everybody else had a camera.

I made a very sad attempt to get a shot of Isela and Joaquin in the pumpkins. It was pretty pathetic and the sun was in their eyes...but hey, I had to give it a shot! As you can see, Isela wasn't too impressed with the idea.

are you kidding me mama?

They had a dirt hill covered with construction trucks...Joaquin was in "tractor" heaven!

There was a giant hill of cottonseed for the kids to slide and roll down, Joaquin loved it!

I'm hoping we can go again this week in the afternoon with Dan...but we'll see if he's up for it.

Oh, I know this was only supposed to be about the pumpkin patch, but I have to share these photos as well. On Monday as playgroup started to wind down, I had to run off for a doctor's appointment. Joaquin stayed with some of my friends and their kids. As luck would have it up rolled a Firetruck and they totally showed off for the kids. Nobody had a camera, but one Mama managed these pretty impressive shots with her phone. I'm super sad and bitter I missed it, but pretty stoked for Joaquin. How fun does this look?!?

He looks so cute with the firehose! I can't wait until my Sweet Baboo is old enough to do stuff like that!
Oh, and if you're sad that you missed it, firestations give free tours to groups (at least in Canada). Maybe you could arrage for a tour for one of your playgroups? :)

I love the pictures. Look at all the memories he will have. This is all way better than teaching ;)
