"Punkins, Mommy, Punkins!"

About a week ago we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins for the front porch, and Hunter LOVED it, so we headed out to the Arboretum this weekend to see some more.  And he was not disappointed.

His favorite was probably the pumpkin house.  He thought it was "so cool!"

So was running off energy in the hay maze...

And posing with all of the pumpkins.  Hunter's doing much better at smiling for the camera these days.  He even says "cheeeeese".  It's my dream come true:)


Hunter was not a fan of these big pumpkin piles.  Actually, he loved picking up the pumpkins and running around with them.  He was just a little scared to climb up the pile and pose like cousin Zack...


Charlotte liked the pumpkins too.  It's just not as obvious due to all of the fist sucking...

I know it looks like Hunter's flashing back in time with some early 90's dance moves, but he's really just excited about moving on to see the frogs.  Hopefully, he'll keep up his dance skills, because we all know his mommy doesn't have any.

On the way to the frogs, we had to stop and check out the baby pumpkins...

And pose in the walkway lined with pumpkins...
                            

When we finally made it to the frogs, Hunter was too scared to get close to them.  In case you forgot, my child will excitedly point out the water every time we see a fountain, but does not want that water coming anywhere near him.  Vanesa embraced it though...

After the pumpkins, we went to all of the children's storybook houses.  Hunter was also a huge fan of these.  This one is for the book, Eragon...

Hansel and Gretel...


The Little Prince...

I'm not gonna lie.  I have no idea what this one is, but it's a super cute picture, huh?!

Charlotte was such a trooper.  She slept in the wrap for a while, but was happy, awake baby for the majority of the time.

The last place we went was this western/Texas section.



Charlotte's super excited to be free from the wrap...

But not for long...

Does she look irritated or what?  She really loves her wrap - I think she just wanted to look sassy for the picture;)
