A trip to the Pumpkin Patch

by | Oct 30, 2007 | Autumn, Field Trips, Nature, Pumpkin Patch | 3 comments

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!

    That sounds like you had so much fun.
    Glad you had such a great time.
    Are these the pumpkins to be carved for contests?

    These pictures are adorable. Totally adorable!! We especially loved the top one of all four kids, the one of Chiquita looking sideways, and the one of Captain looking pooped!

    By the way, I love being able to keep up on what is happening with your family!

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.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
