Joshua's Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Joshua could not wait until his Pumpkin Patch Day.  It was rained out then rescheduled.  So, my friend Courtney was able to keep Marah for me.  So, I had to do what the teachers had said "not" to do - bring a sibling.  Little Macy had no where to go, but to the Pumpkin Patch with us.  Luckily Joshua has a super cool teacher who said it was no problem at all.  Macy was super that day, so I was very thankful for that.

Standing by the wooden cows that were built for all the kids to be able to feel what it is like to milk a cow.  They all loved this.

Digging in the sand for veggies.

He found some.

Macy loved feeding the goats.  They nibbled all over her hands and she didn't care at all.

It was a beautiful day for the Pumpkin Patch.  I was so blessed to be able to go and spend time with Joshua and Macy.

Marah's Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Any of you know my middle child "Marah", will also know that she loves school.  This child loves waking up in the morning just so she can go to school.  She is also the one that leaves out no details when telling her stories of days at school (like her daddy in this sense).  Since she did not go to preschool last year, this was her first little field trip to the Pumpkin Patch and she had so much fun (Macy and I did too)!

It's October!

The Bowerman's are finally well! It has been a long 6 weeks with all 3 of my kids having the swine flu. Joshua got pneumonia and the girls both got sinus infections following the flu. And on top of all this, I got the swine flu myself , then pneumonia. Crazy stuff. We have never been this sick - ever. At least Rodney has found a way to stay pretty healthy throughout all of this. Hope he doesn't get it next week. Oink Oink!
Staying in is not something I enjoy doing every day of the week. So as soon as my breathing was back to normal from the pneumonia, we headed to St.Florian where we get our pumpkins. Joshua and Marah both picked out a small one to paint (Macy too) and we picked out a big one to carve. The rain made everything a little messy, but we still had a good time picking out our pumpkins.

For a little Halloween preview this year, we will be having a fireman and 2 white kitty cats!
