Bates Circa 2007
Is this not one of the funniest photos ever? This one will make his senior slide show and his wedding. Classic. This was his first Halloween and I was determined to get an Anne Geddes-esque photo in a large pumpkin. Turns out he wasn’t down with it. Total dude.
Fast Forward to 2011
Today we headed back out to the farm for our 5th annual family day full of fun. There is a pumpkin patch, petting zoo, pony rides, hay rides, a corn maze, arts/crafts, food and most importantly a candy shoppe!
It was CRAZY hot. I’m talking 90 degrees, windy and gross. I am pretty sure everyone there had sweaty pits. Even this guy
Although it was hotter than hot we had a great time.
We had a total of 15 peeps in our group! It was my fam, my parents, my sis, my bro and his fam and our close friends! The kids had a blast.
After picking out the perfect pumpkins we bought $28 worth of candy and fudge. That is ridiculous right? I justify it by saying we only get to do this once a year 🙂
We were out of cash after our sugar shopping spree. We headed back to my parents house where it is almost 25 degrees cooler (praise God). We have a pot of sauce on and will be enjoying a big Italian family dinner.
