Some Apples and A lot of Rain!

Today we ventured out to an apple orchard/pumpkin patch.  The weather man said the rain was not supposed to come until this afternoon, but sure enough the moment we pulled in and turned the car off, down pour!  It let up, and continued to sprinkle a little bit while we were there.  But we had a great morning, and more importantly we made a family memory!


Molly loved the goats!


Choo-Choo!  They had so many fun things for kids to play on.


Picking out her pumpkin!  Which we didn't get because those people thought their
pumpkins were made of gold, they were too expensive!


Molly had her first pony ride...she LOVED it!
I was nervous she would hate it, but she loved every minute of it!


Eating a yummy, delicious apple doughnut!


This was right before we really got poured on! 
But I think it's one of my favorites!

Ha!!! Love the donut picture! How fun that she got to ride a pony! We don't have a pumpkin patch around here that I know of. I love all of the pictures....what awesome memories!

Holly said...

Aw, this looks like so much fun! (except the rain of course-go fig it had to rain!) Those places can have expensive pumpkins so don't blame ya on skipping that. I don't think I've heard of an apple donut. Neat!! Kyndra loves riding the little ponies at the fair so I think she'd like riding the big horses too.

Those blonde curls are to die for!! Sorry the weather didn't cooperate very well, glad you got there though. I know children just love getting a pumpkin!

Love LOVE the new thanksgiving theme!

Oh that looks like so much fun! Way to persevere in the rain! And that family picture at the end is the absolute cutest. . . We are headed to the pumpkin patch this weekend, so hopefully I will have some fun pictures on Monday, too.

I loved your pumpkin patch pictures... that is our favorite fall tradition to do. You must live in near the northeast as well? There is nothing like fall weather in the northeast!! Beauuutiful!
Your daughter is so precious! She and my little girls would get along so well!
As far as the pumpkins being priced like gold- they are here too!

Such great pictures and memories! You have a beautiful family! Thanks so much for your sweet, encouraging comments on my blog. I've been in a little bit of a blogging/responding slump, but life is slowing down a little, I hope. I'm excited about catching up with all my blog friends.

First of all, congrats on being featured on Lynette's "Getting to know You." So nice to meet you, LOL! Okay...just kidding!

I'm so glad you guys had a good time at the pumpkin patch the other day even though the weather was yucky. I'm gonna be taking the girls this weekend and I will probably be just like you and not buy a pumpkin there. We'll see if Alyssa will let me get away with it! :)

Love the pic of Molly riding the horse. So cute!
