A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

It was a beautiful Fall weekend.  Saturday started out rainy, so we spent our morning just hanging out and getting some house things done...laundry, a little baking, and a little cleaning (very little).  Since Gracie can't have donuts due to her food allergies (pretty much every commercial donut is made in a facility that uses tree nuts), we bought a Babycakes mini donut maker.  We tried that out on Saturday morning.  She was so excited about it!  She was right there helping me every step of the way.  But when it came time to actually eat the donuts, I don't think she was all that impressed.  Jeff and I thought they were pretty good though. 

On Sunday we went to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard.  Gracie had a great time.  I think the highlight for her was the tractor pulled wagon ride.  She didn't want to sit down.  She stood for the whole ride, holding on for dear life and the bumpier the ride, the happier she was.  At one point she said to me:  "It's a party!"  She also said "This is fun!" 

We also ran into some former daycare friends at the pumpkin patch, so it was fun to see them.  Although Gracie seemed a little reserved, even though I know she loved hanging out with these kids. 

We got three for dad, one for mom, and a smaller one for Gracie.  She especially likes that one because she can carry it around.  She found it hilarious when she accidentally dropped it and it rolled all the way down our driveway and into the street and I had to go rescue it.  She giggled the whole time it rolled.

The rest of our afternoon was spent outside enjoying the day.  Gracie slept so well last night.  I think all of the fresh air was so good for her.

Have a great week!
