A trip to the Pumpkin Patch
Sunday, after Mass, we took the kids to the Pumpkin Patch.
The weather was absolutely beautiful!
Here is Daddy with Snuggles.
The boys, with a couple of their friends, going on a wagon ride.
The boys each got pony rides… We tried to get the girls to get on, but they refused. Chiquita did pet one of the ponies, but Twinkle Toes wouldn’t go anywhere near them. However, when it was time to leave she said, “But I haven’t ridden the pony yet!” So… Maybe next time.
ALL the kids loved climbing on the hay stack!
There was an area to feed some animals, a corn maze, a sunflower maze and many other things for the kids to do.
Then it was off to find our pumpkins!
The search began.
The deal is, they have to be able to carry their pumpkin…
Looks like Twinkle Toes found hers!
Over all we had a wonderful day!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
