The Pumpkin Patch

We took the kids to a pumpkin patch this weekend! We had a great time seeing the farm animals, riding the tractor, and looking at the pumpkins (calabazas in Spanish). Abby was thrilled because orange is her favorite color! Abby, just chilling in her sunglasses.

I'm trying to get them to stand or sit together for a picture. Not happening.

Almost there. Will, sit down.

Over here, guys. What are they looking at?

As good as it gets. All looking in same general direction and all sitting. Seriously, it's sad, but this was the best we could do.

We walked across a big pumpkin field, and the kids got to collect little pumpkins and gourds along the way. Will decided he would try to eat one, and Marie joined in. Were they really hungry?

Then, they got tired and decided it was time to rest in the tall grass.

Again, I tried for a picture, but I'm the only one looking at the camera. Classic.

I had to add this one because it was so funny. I needed to get showered and dressed one morning over the weekend, but as soon as the trio sensed mommy was going to abandon them, they started freaking out. Daddy came to my rescue and said, "Who wants to watch Daddy cook?" This is hilarious on a couple of levels. #1: Seriously, Billy is going to cook? That's really funny. #2: How is that at all entertaining to three 2 year olds?
Well, the kids must have all thought this was going to be an amazing display in culinary genius. They raced to the kitchen to watch his cooking prowess. I decided to bring in their chairs so that they could be the studio audience. They all sat and watched daddy make scrambled eggs and pork roll. The Iron Chef was at it again!
I was able to make my escape....
