Pumpkin Patchin' It!

Grandma Pat and Grandpa Brent came into town for a short visit. The kids always love to have them come and visit. We made a last minute trip to the Pumpkin Patch - as somehow both Matt and I had expertly avoided it until now - and spent the night riding the rides and picking out a pumpkin with grandma and grandpa.
Raegan was beyond thrilled to ride her very own pony named Snickers. The six tickets it took to ride the pony was the equivilent of about $5 - but how could we help but ride them over and over when Raegan would smile and laugh the whole time. We are such suckers for her adorable smile!!
You know how kids never do what you asked. We couldn't get Ethan in the picture - or even to smile. So we tried the whole "Ethan - don't get in the picture. Ethan - don't smile. In fact - nobody smile - I want to see a whole bunch of frowny faces." I guess being 4 years old means we always do the opposite of what mom and dad ask. Gotta love how that works!!
Kylie and Lauren hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa Griffin. We had so much fun - thanks for the visit.!
