A Pumpkin for Two Little Punkins

Last weekend we babysat my niece LeiAna who just turned two. She is a little fire cracker! Just like her mommy! In just one night she showed Eli all the potential dangers in the house (which we were sure were baby proofed). Turns out if you just climb over baby gates they're not effective.  Instead of pulling my hair out at home with two toddlers, Justin and I decided to make a fun outing with them to Oak Glen Orchards and let them pick apples (which we didn't end up doing :(  ) and see some animals. We watched a short pirate show and then let them walk around. Ironically, we ran into Justin's brother, Jared, which was awesome because we don't see him too often. Afterwards, we went to an amazing pumpkin patch that I am going to insist we go to again..so much fun. There were all sorts of carnival activities, a petting zoo, a real pumpkin patch where you could literally go get your own pumpkin, and so many booths with face paint, yummy food, one you could take your picture with a monkey...you know the usual stuff..haha. What a great time! But I will say two toddlers is exhausting..one is exhausting....two is exhausting..oh yeah, I said that. Really! Kind of makes me REALLY want to stick to my plan on waiting to have more. But they get along quite well and had so much fun--- so it was worth it.



We love having our neices with us, and getting to be auntie and Uncle...spoil 'em rotten!
