pumpkin patching

I am the kind of girl that likes to be on the go and Mia is the same way! Before James was born, we got out of the house almost every single day, even if it was just an hour or so at the gym! What can I say, Mia and I thrive on adventures and being active! That being said, I'm also the kind of girl who believes in soaking up that 6 weeks post baby and letting my body heal! But both Mia and I were going absolutely stir crazy (even though my parents and Eric's parents had been here and taken Mia out on multiple occasions) so I jumped at the opportunity to get out of the house when Eric suggested going to a car show! I couldn't help but google pumpkin patches after seeing so many fun photos on Instagram and discovered that there was one just minutes from our home, and not far from the car show! Thank heavens for Eric who can't say no to his girls ;)
We hit up the car show and didn't stay very long... it definitely wasn't Eric's favorite. But it was so cute to watch Mia walk around holding Eric's hand, patiently looking at the cars (she's much more patient than I am, ha!) and thinking about all the memories Eric will make with Mia and James when it comes to car shows and working on his own Chevelle with them! And I think James' outfit was totally perfect for the occasion ;)
Next we hit up the pumpkin patch and Mia was in heaven! She played in the tractor tire playground, hugged goats (yes, I was horrified but Eric scrubbed her down) and claimed the mini horse in the petting zoo, jumped on some bouncy thing while I fed James (she's obsessed with jumping so that was a life saver to keep her occupied!), went on a little train ride, walked through the corn maze and picked out a pumpkin! She had so much fun and never wanted to leave! Too bad this momma can't hang like she used to... I'm looking forward to the day that I have my strength and energy back ;)

"It's too heaby!!" while grunting and carrying it to us, ha!

Mia obviously hated it... ha ha! Saturday was the best family day! Thanks to Eric for making it possible, I definitely wouldn't have made it out of the house without him! I can't wait for many more adventures with my family of FOUR!

Fun outing! I forget how little newborns are when you put them in the wraps, can hardly believe there is a baby in there! So snugly, I know mine both loved that thing. Especially Mini Fox, only way to get her to stop crying!

He is so tiny and cozy looking in that wrap! I wish I knew more about wraps with Aria. What a fun pumpkin patch day and so conveniently nearby!

So adorable! Love that picture of Mia holding the heavy pumpkin haha!

Hannah said...

Oh, so fun! I love how she says heavy - it's sounds just like how my little guy says it. This is such a fun to take kids to the pumpkin patch. Glad you got to get out of the house and that the pumpkin patch was close to you all. You really can go stir crazy those first few weeks after having a baby - sometimes you just need to get out and do something! :)
