The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

The Pumpkin Patch with Friends!

Julie and I had a wonderful time taking the boys to a pumpkin patch on Saturday.
Reese was fearless by leading the charge to go down the big slide.

He and Cooper had fun going down the slide together.

Brooks even got in on the fun.

Julie pointed out in this picture that her children were sitting the same way and so were mine. They were waiting patiently for the cow train.
They ended up being the only ones on the train.

Then they had a great time at the duck races. Reese like this especially!

After watching the pigs race, we went to drive the tractors. It ended up being a lot harder than it looked.

Then it was off to play in the corn box. I think this was one of the activities the boys liked the most.

Here is Austin and Reese playing at the duck race area.

On the hayride to go pick out a pumpkin.

I love the expression on their faces to see the little pumpkin.

This is probably my favorite picture from the day. They were all checking out a tiny pumpkin that Brooks said, "had just popped." Typical boys.

These are the pumpkins they picked out.

This picture was taken in the middle of the corn maze. Luckily they just wanted to go to "Marshmellow Mountain" and not actually go through the whole maze. I told Julie as we were following the signs to marshmellow mountain that I felt like we were Dora the explorer. "Go through the corn maze, past the signs, to get to Marshmellow Mountain."
On top of the hay bales.

We had such a good time with our friends. Brooks already is talking about going back next year.

What a wonderful time you all had! I'm so glad everyone was able to go. These memories will last a lifetime. Thank you for sharing those memories with us and Julie and the boys.

I am just saying Dreamfield farms is probably the best pumpkin patch ever! :) (And maybe it's because that is where Nate proposed! :)) Love all the pictures! Those will be priceless as they grow up!

I wanna jump in that big thing of corn and lay underneath all the kernels. I bet that feels super cool... the rest of it looks great, but I have never seen a big box of corn in which to play.
