Pumpkin Patch

It was worth the 9 hr trip to Albuquerque to visit the McCall Pumpkin Patch. The weather was beautiful. The pumpkin patch - which should be called a great fall festival since it is so much more than a pumpkin patch - was so impressive. It will have to become an annual event for us.
They are all making their appropriate noises.
Evan loved the go carts and the miner's tunnel slide! Andie loved the trampoline and the corn "sandbox" the best.
We took a hayride to the middle of the pumpkin patch and got to find our treasured pumpkins. The one Evan is holding became a pumpkin pie later that day. Evan has never had pumpkin pie, but it's what he really wanted to do with his pumpkin. His Nana made his wish come true. It was the most delicious pumpkin pie I have had to date. I just love the fall!

Pink Care Bear Birthday Party

Hurray! The time finally came for Andie's pink Care Bear birthday party! My parents and my sister and her crew came to town. We met with the rest of our family and Andie's friends at the gymnastics sports center. There was plenty of running space and trampolines and foam pits for all to enjoy. Andie told me she wanted this pink care bear cake about 3 months ago. Her name is Love-a-lot Bear. After I had finished making the cake, I must have pulled it out of the fridge about five times to let Andie ooh and ahh over it - it doesn't take much to please her.
Happy Birthday to you sweet girl!
This is the kids favorite thing to do when they come to gymnastics. They get on a trampoline, wear this suspension belt, and do back flips or just swing high in the air - great fun!!
Andie had a great party. Thanks to everyone, the girl has tons of care bear stuff - she is in heaven! Pictured are many of the Care Bears she received. She also received a tea party set. So, many times we have lined up all the care bears when Andie decides it's tea party time. Notice in front of Evan is Mater. Mater drinks Dr.Pepper at tea parties.
