video's as promised :)

Last year at the pumpkin patch it started raining and Makaylee and Bailey had a BLAST jumping in the mud puddles. Time for a flash back video:

So when we told Makaylee we were going to the pumpkin patch she kept talking about jumping in the puddles. We have a DVD of video's of Makaylee and she loves to watch it, so she has seen that same video several times. On Saturday she did not seem interested in jumping. But on Sunday she said she wanted to jump in the mud. Well in the past year Makaylee has developed a fear of being dirty. We call her our little ocd girl. Don't get me wrong, she has NO problem with toys being all over the place. But heaven forbid she gets dirt on her hands, or her face or hands are sticky. We have two dogs that shed and if she has dog hair on her feet she freaks out and sits down to brush it off. The only exception to this is Chocolate. If she is helping me bake she gets chocolate all over herself and she has NO problem with this. Back to the point. So this is what happened at the Pumpkin patch when she tried to jump in the mud:

And just to give fair share, here is Kaiden enjoying the hay:

The Pumpkin Patch

We had a great weekend. We went to the pumpkin patch. Makaylee LOVED the pumpking patch, so we ended up going both days. They had a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay bales to play on, animals and a childrens activity barn. We got some wonderful pictures. Makaylee loved walking around looking at the pumpkins. The activity barn was a ton of fun! They had a bunch of pans and buckets to bang on which was okay fun. But Makaylee LOVED the rubber duck races. They set up some gutters upside down on a platform and had water pumps on one end to "race" the ducks to the other end by pumping. Of course Makaylee kind of enjoyed the pumping, but she loved watching the ducks fall off the edge into the bucket of water. Also playing with the ducks in the water. We walked over and saw some animals and overall had a great day. The next day we asked Makaylee what she wanted to do and she said she wanted to go to the pumpkin patch. So, we went ahead and went back. I have some video's to share of the pumpkin patch, but youtube is down right now, so I will do that another day. But here are some great pictures:

Look, everyone is looking at the camera and smiling!

Kaiden likes the hooters girls ;)

We went out to lunch the other day with some friends. Their little boy who was 5 wanted to get his picture taken with the Hooters Girls, so that is where we went. Unfortunatly he was too shy to actually take the picture, but Kaiden was happy to step in. He gave us a big smile. Cute pic! I am sure he will appreciate this later in life:
