Autumn adventures

Lydia falling asleep on "Aunt Jen"'s lap chilling on her deck after grilled hot dogs and s'mores. Life just doesn't get much better than that!

Here are some snapshots of our pumpkin-picking and hayride...

Our darling little pumpkin head before we headed out

Every year of Lydia's life we've gotten a shot on the horsie.

Lydia LOVED the mini-hay maze. She went through it at least 4 times and would have gone more had we not (almost forcefully) redirected her to the pumpkin patch

"Hug the big pumpkin"

I love her pose here.


After fussing, this is how Tobe spent the remainder of the time at the pumpkin patch

Lydia, on the other hand, got a 2nd wind when she got to feed the goats.

We went to a corn maze in Mercersburg last weekend with a group from church. The whole way there she exclaimed, “We’re going on a hayride!”
Hangin' with mommy on the hayride

Tobi spent the hayride blowing bubbles

What she didn’t know was that she would get to meet pigs up close and personal.

She then got to hold a bunny and was in absolute heaven.

And she really seemed to get the concept of the corn maze. She would come to an intersection and say, “This way or this way.” And proceed to take off running.

She got so tired that at one point she fell face down and couldn’t get up. I suppose a corn field is just as good a place as any to nap. After mommy took a turn, daddy shouldered her load. Whew!
