Sunday Musings

We've had a nice weekend so I wanted to share a few photos and a couple of layouts that I've completed. On Saturday, we all went to the Chesterfield Berry Farm to go to the pumpkin patch. My mom came with us and we had a good time. It was extremely packed with people which wasn't much fun but I'd expected as much due to how close we are to Halloween. Meighan and Alex liked visiting with the animals that they had on the farm - rabbits, chickens, horses, an ostrich, sheep, pigs and birds. Alex, in particular, had a great time watching the animals - he's our little animal lover. Meighan loved the hay area where she got to go wild in the hay, rolling around, throwing hay, being a wild child. Alex wasn't as big of a fan - he didn't seem to like getting the hay all over him. We wanted to take the hay ride to the pumpkin patch but the line was outrageous and the twins were hungry and tired. It just didn't seem like a good idea. Maybe next year. Today we stayed home and just hung out. Paul took Sami home (we miss you already, Sami!) and I hung with the kids. We had fun cuddling and playing. They are into everything these days - makes for an adventurous day!

Here are a few pictures from the pumpkin patch ...

In the wagon, heading to the farm.

This is Alex visiting with the ostrich - he watched and watched and watched it!

This isn't a very good picture but it does show everyone trying to get time with the horse.

Here's Meighan having a good old time rollin' in the hay and throwin' it around a bit!

And this may well be why Alex was not such a fan of the hay!!!

But, he had fun hanging with Grandma instead!

And Paul had fun getting hay all over Sami - she had lots of fun getting it out of her beautiful long hair!

And this is just one of the reasons that they love Sami so much - she just jumps right in and has a great time with them. She's such a great kid!

I did sneak in time to put together two layouts this weekend. One is with a picture from the pumpkin patch using Rose Farver's September kit and the other is a layout I did with Jen Beschinski's (3 Ring Studio) new Simple Life kit. I had a lot of fun with them both! You can see the credits for both at the DST link to the right of the blog. Here they are:

Well, that's it for me tonight. I hope you also had a great weekend. More tomorrow (I hope)!
