Sam Turns Two (Down on the Farm)
One month ago today, my little baby Sam turned TWO! And seeing that he's the fourth child, it has taken me a whole month to commemorate his special day in bloggy world. If I was a fabulous special occassion mom, I would have planned a big shabang for my little man. As it is, I am not the greatest at making special occassions feel special. Enter Nana and Aunt Patty. (Grandma is usually a contributor of the special days, but she was special occassioning it with the oldest grandson on this particular weekend. So Sam lucked out and got two fun weekends in a row!)
When deciding how we should celebrate the Terrific Two, we wanted to do something that involved Sam's favorite activity...running around with nobody stopping him. So, Nana thought the Pumpkin Patch seemed like a good idea, and Sam concurred. Seeing as it wasn't even October yet, the farm we visited was delightfully uncrowded and somewhat humid and sweaty. I wasn't complaining, though, because the last time I was there, my teeth were chattering and my chin was numb.
Maddie, Jack, and Luke ran around in cotton. I guess that's a southern thing.
We didn't realize that Emily is a goat whisperer.
Chris was clearly the coolest guy at the Pumpkin Patch.
At this particular Patch, everyone's admission automatically includes a pumpkin. Can I tell you that finding ten perfect pumpkins can be quite time consuming?
