Pumpkins, etc...

There hasn't been all that much to blog about lately. I've had Walking Pnemonia for the past few weeks and that's been pretty fantastic. Boo! I hate being sick. Hmm, what else...we've pretty much just been low key, hanging at the house lately. Exciting I know.

It's been rainy, but yesterday was finally sunny so we decided to go to a pumpkin patch. It was quite the task even to get there. Bri is, as many of you may know, a total princess. She wants nothing to do with any article of clothing that doesn't sparkle or that isn't a dress. It's been getting cooler so we are trying to get pants on this child, but let me just say, it is no easy task! She was so excited to go pick out pumpkins and go on a hay ride, but not if it meant that she had to wear pants. This was day three of making my child wear pants (I'm so mean) and it was just too much for her. She said that she would stay home so she could wear a dress and she stuck to it for a good hour, which in toddler time is quite awhile! Finally, the prospect of picking out her very own pumpkin beat out wearing a pretty dress and she put on some pants. In the end, I think she was glad that she cooperated because we had a great time. :) Ever since Disneyland, these little hands go up anytime we are about to go over a bump in the road, go through a tunnel, etc. So of course they went up when we were on the hay ride because, it is indeed a RIDE.



The pumpkins were all too big for her to carry, but that didn't stop her from trying. She kept asking where the baby pumpkins were because these were too big! On our way out, we did find some little pumpkins that were just her size. :)


Brighton loved running through the pumpkins. She ran and ran and ran and luckily didn't trip over too many.





Picking up pumpkins wasn't working too well for this little lady so she switched to picking flowers for awhile.


She loved riding in this wagon. The whole way home she asked if we could go back and ride in the wagon some more. It was a great fall day and we all quite enjoyed our visit to the pumpkin patch.


And this is where I found her the other day. I asked if she was looking for something to eat and she said, "No Mom, I'm just building my yogart castle." Oh, of course, a yogurt castle, I should have known.

What a cute girl. The pumpkin patch looked fun. That is the best place for fun pictures. Have you tried letting her wear her summer dresses over jeans with a long sleeve shirt under them? She would be right in with the fashions. I hope you are feeling better. It is no fun to be sick!

Bri!!! said...

Yogurt Castle...LOL. That's so dang cute. Also I think it's hilarious that she only wants to wear dresses. Not very easy during the cold months. What a cutie

We have tried the dress over jeans look. I am a fan. Unfortunately, Bri isn't!

LOVED the yougart castle. What a princess. I love it. She is too cute. Glad she gave in and went to the pumpkin patch! Sorry, you've been so sick. Yuck. Hearing about Bri's love for princesses reminded me of when we went to disneyland this last winter. After we got home, Saige randomly turend to me one day and said, "Mother, in my eyes your a princess!"

Walking Pnemonia??? Where have I been! I swear Quincy probably knew about it and didn't tell me. It makes me nervous- the boys and I have had coughs. Maybe I should get it checked out. Hope you are feeling better. We miss you guys!

She is seriously such a beautiful girl Ash. And the yogurt castel cracked me up. I'm sorry you've been sick! I'll call you soon.

Get better! I'm sorry you've been so sick.
I really like that pic of Bri walking through the pumpkins. It looks like they go on forever.
I wonder who lives in the yogurt castle?

What a little cutie you have on your hands. It's so fun to hear all the funny things that kids say. It makes me excited for Luke to talk some day. You'll have to let us know if and when you will be coming for the holidays. I'm all for changing the party around so that you guys can come!

Being sick as a mother is the worst thing ever! How fun to have a girly, little princess...I'm jealous!

The Gunn Family said...

Hello my long lost friend Ash! What is going on? Our schedules must be completely opposite- you're busy when I'm not and vice versa. I really do hope one of these days we can meet up on the phone and in real life. Brighton gets cuter and cuter every time I see her. I didn't think that was possible. Love you Lots!
