"Alright Daddy....get a move on it!"

Having fun riding in the wheel barrow.

Checking out the chickens.

"I want THIS one!"

She wanted to carry her "ball" soooo bad.

"Now what?!"

In the Alice in Wonderland castle.

She was in awe of the goats, llama, and donkey. They were getting some lunch.

Having fun running around.

Too distracted by all the fun to look at the camera. LOL

Whoops.....we didn't know the hat was covering her eyes. Hehehe.

Oh the fun of mud puddles.

Splashing around.

"Come on Daddy....splash with me!"

Just chilling in the wheel barrow.


The cutest little pumpkin EVER!

This girls just LOVES water.

We've got our pumpkins and corn it's time to head home! So much fun at the pumpkin patch!!!

Since the last few weeks have been so busy we were FINALLY able to make it to the pumpkin patch today. We had originally planned on going with Grandma Jill, Grandpa Randy, and Uncle Kevin yesterday, but the weather took a turn for the worse and we decided to hold off for a bit of a nicer day. We were so blessed with a beautiful, sunny, fall day today so we had to take advantage of it. We headed down to Spooner Farms in Orting for our annual pumpkin patch fun. Maddie absolutely LOVED riding in the wheel barrow! Although we had already carved pumpkins we decided we needed a few more to decorate our front porch. Maddie did a great job picking out some small pumpkins.

After a few minutes of pumpkin picking, she had discovered the fun of MUD PUDDLES. For the rest of the time, Maddie lead us in all kinds of directions and had to be sure to step and splash in almost every single mud puddle on the farm. Maddie also really enjoyed looking at the animals and watching the bigger kids do the duck races. Always such fun times with our little girl!


Our humble abode for the weekend.

Castaway Cottage.

My BEAUTIFUL family.

My FAVORITE little girl and me.

Daddy and Maddie.

Stairway down to the beach. 91 stairs to be exact (counted by my dad, so I hope that's right) LOL.

We made it down to the beach. Maddie was still learning how to walk in her rain boots.

Heading down the the beach!

John, on one of his many attempts to get the stunt kite in the air.

Grandpa, Grandma and their little girl!

She was in awe of the biggest playground ever!

She loved checking out the kites flying in the air.

Now it's Maddie's turn to fly her princess kite.

Attempting to get the stunt kite in the air. John didn't have much luck.

Showing Uncle Kevin her sand dollar. She carried that thing around for FOREVER!

"Look at the kites!"

She's LOVING it!!!

Looks like she is on a mission.

"Say what?!"

We all had SOOOOO much fun!

Mom and John riding bikes in the neighborhood.

Getting ready to head back home. Maddie was helping with the cleaning too.

Out for one last stroll with Grandma Jill before we hit the road.

Last weekend our family Mom, Dad, Kevin, John, Madison, and myself went away to the ocean. We stayed in the most wonderful little "neighborhood" in Seabrook. It was the most wonderful time together! Madison absolutely LOVED the ocean. Although it was rainy on Saturday when we were there, we didn't let that stop us from enjoying ourselves. Maddie couldn't get enough of the endless playground the beach and ocean provided. We spent our weekend walking along the beach, riding bikes, flying kites, hot tubbing, and of course eating! :-) We are definitely going to have to make it an annual family tradition to spend the weekend in Seabrook.
