Pumpkin Patch and Halloween Fun

This last week was a busy one! On Wednesday Avery and I went to the pumpkin patch with Mom, Charlie, Dan, Heidi, and all their crew. We had lots of fun, but it did take a little bit to get Avery into it, but she ended up really having a good time. Then on Friday it was Halloween!! Avery dressed up as a kitty cat. She was so excited that morning when I showed her her halloween costume. She wanted to be in it all day. We went to Katy and Mike's and went trick or treating over there, then went back to their house where my mom had set up a whole spooky set up with a cauldren and everything. Mike and her had also set up some really cool stuff in the garage for the kids to play with. There was a pinata, pin the stem on the pumpkin, and tons more. It was a lot of fun!! But we were definitely ready to go home when the day was over.

Avery threw a fit when we first got to the pumpkin patch. She threw herself on the floor and was screaming and yelling. Of course I had to take a picture, what a wonderful mother I am...

When we finally got outside she was a little happier. She got to ride on the duck.

Next we took a hayride out to the pumpkin patch.

This was the first pumpkin she picked up, but not the one we ended up taking. It was a little yucky on the other side.

Here's her cheesy smile. The pumpkin next to her is the one she picked out.

Then there was the straw maze. She did really good actually. I didn't have to help her too much. She just followed the other kids.

Here's her and Maddy. They had fun together.

Here's her kitty outfit. I was surprised she didn't rub the face makeup all over her face in the first fifteen minutes lol.

Who is this lady?? She wasn't scared, surprisingly. She was just super curious.

Avery and Joe were more interested in destroying the pumpkins then knocking down the pins I think. The pumpkins didn't last very long after they got ahold of them.
