pumpkin patch fun

This weekend we hit up our local pumpkin patch. We had a great time checking out all the pumpkins and getting muddy. It was a perfect fall day and it really felt like the perfect time to be pumpkin hunting.pumpkin patch pumpkin-patch-2 pumpkin-patch-3 Job loved walking around checking everything out. He was having fun trying to pick up the GIANT pumpkins and conquering all that mud, or at least stomping in it.pumpkin-patch-4 pumpkin-patch-5 pumpkin-patch-6 pumpkin-patch-7 pumpkin-patch-8 pumpkin-patch-9 The kids seemed so small standing in the ginormous field of pumpkins. It seemed like the orange speckled field went for miles.pumpkin-patch-10 pumpkin-patchThe crisp fall weather mixed with the array of green and orange brings the full weight of autumn goodness to bear on you. So thankful for the fun that each season brings. I hope y’all are having a great fall and have been able to go to the pumpkin patch, or at least have some fun in the mud.

weekend fun

I had every intention of posting this post yesterday, but that just didn’t happen. Between cleaning up puppy pee and loving on some cranky kids all while trying to make a meal for a family in our church who are leaving to pick up there adopted daughter (YAY!!!), let’s just say, it just didn’t happen. So here we are, Tuesday, and I am just now finishing up this post about our weekend. But that’s okay.kitchenaidOn a side note, maybe it’s time for me to reset my “normal” to a little more “crazy”. I feel like I keep saying how crazy it is. So there, I did it. I just reset our new “normal” to “crazy” for all the world to see.laundrybasketBack to the original post… This weekend flew by! Ian was busy with meetings, mowing the lawn, and getting a flat tire. And I was busy with kids and a puppy. (Ian has helped me too).laundry basketSaturday we did our weekly trip to Trader Joe’s and ate dinner at Chipotle. We don’t eat there often, but we should. It’s so yummy! We then headed to Caribou Coffee for Ian and Menchi’s Frozen Yogurt for me! I love a good cup of Frozen Yogurt. The kids helped me eat my FroYo.bath timeThen Sunday we headed off to church to hear an awesome sermon from Paster Scott. It’s the best sermon I have heard in awhile. But then again, it was the first Sunday in a long time I was able to sit through the whole thing without needing to attend to one of my children. Needless to say, it was very refreshing and just what I needed to hear to start off my week. I feel like I always need to be remind to lay down my life and to live out my doctrine in love.bathtimeOn a lesser note, I gave Job a haircut while Ruthie was in a laundry basket and the puppy ran around in the crazy humidity. And of course I decided to let Job eat a sticky sucker… with all of his hair clippings flying around. Let’s just say it was crazy. We were all covered in hair, sweating, and in much need of a bath.bathtubIt was a full, busy weekend, and it was one where I was FIGHTING for joy, but we made it to another week. So here we are. Tuesday. Off to do more fighting.
