Butler Orchards

They have so many "pick your own" farms and orchards out here.   For some reason, I have never taken the kids to one before.  I thought it would be fun to go and pick apples with them, but I waited too long, and missed out on all the apples.  We decided to do the pick your own pumpkin instead.  We went with some good friends of ours to a fun place called Butler Orchards.  They had a corn maze, fun slides, this huge barn full of hay that the kids loved to play in, and some other fun things for the kids.  Then we got take a hayride out to a field and pick out our own pumpkins.  Wyatt of course wanted the biggest one that he saw, but we finally talked him into a normal sized one.  It was a fun day.

Oh I miss you guys so much! We had so much fun being with you. Annie has asked about Wyatt and "McKarlee" several times. It sounds like you had a fun time!

Sounds like lots of fun...there aren't too many farms here in this small city of 8 million, so we haven't the chance to do something like that. I sure will when we get back to the states though. Your kids are such cuties. Hey...just an FYI...it's Sam not Heather commenting. I laughed so hard when I caught them. Sam even updated Heather's blog a couple times.

I'm like Wyatt. I wanted a huge one that was yellow but Jonesy talked me into a little one.

That looks like so much fun. I have always loved the holidays, but I think with kids it's so much better, because you get to see them fascinated and enjoying things for the first time. :) Hope you guys are doing well.
