"Punkin" Patch with Gina and Emma

Gina and I took the girls to the pumpkin patch this last week and had so much fun! But to start off the trip my car got stuck in the mud and Gina had to get a few burly men to push us out while I found a less muddy spot to park. Hannah could hardly contain herself, she was so excited to see what the pumpkin patch was and the fun things they had to do.

This picture was actually taken at the end of the morning after we had found our pumpkins. It's crazy to realize that Gina and I have been friends for 20 years now, and our girls are following in our footsteps and have known each other since birth!
First stop: feeding the goats. Hannah was all about it, and wasn't scared at all; Emma was a little more reserved but came around and totally enjoyed feeding them too. There were also chickens, ducks, pigs, and turkeys (which Hannah thought were ostriches!) which the girls loved to watch.

Next we followed them through the corn maze, they climbed the steps to the tree house and went down the slide, then climbed the hay pyramid, played in the hay house, went down another slide, and then walked through the haunted barn- Hannah kept saying she was scared but as soon as we left the barn she asked to go again!

Finally, it was time to pick out a pumpkin, and they were the perfect size, not too big for the girls to pick up. Hannah was a typical girl and could not decide on a pumpkin, while Emma instantly picked one and was ready to go. Then Gina found a teeny, tiny pumpkin, which ended up being a hot commodity and the girls fought over it until Emma was nice enough to let her BFF have the teeny pumpkin and she chose another one.

Overall, our morning at the pumpkin patch was pretty successful and Hannah only pouted for a few minutes when it was time to leave. We have the best girls ever and I'm so happy they are able to grow-up together! I hope they will look back one day and see how lucky they are to have each other, like Gina and I are have each other... nothings better than your BFF!
