All work and no play...

...makes me a dull mom. I'm posting late at night... that seems to be the norm these days. I try to only work when my kids are napping or have gone to bed for the night and lately it's been difficult with Selah deciding to go to be after 10pm (which we're helping her to do earlier each night) because I don't start editing until then. So I've hired a wonderful girl from our church to come to the house to watch the kids every once in a while so I can catch up on some work, which has been great. I'll get caught up soon and things will return to normal.
All this work had me itching to get out and play with Josh and the kids, so today Josh and I took the kids to a local pumpkin farm and had a great time! We had fresh corn on the cob and a couple of polish dogs/corn dogs for lunch. And we got to see the baby chicks, (Jude had to give it a hug. Isn't that so sweet?) piglets, calves, goats "kids", ponies, etc. and Jude road on the big slide with daddy and on the swings all by himself! (You have to click on that shot to see his excited face) My little guy is getting so big. Jude enjoyed finding tiny pumpkins too. Here are a bunch of snapshots... nothing fantastic (just chasing a toddler around in harsh lighting :) with a baby strapped to my front), but I have to say his little expression on the swing was too cute! There's nothing like time with my precious family to re energize me!

I recognize those baby legs! (Maur got Matea the same ones in green - so cute!)

I'm glad you're getting out with your family - sounds like you were due for a break! Your kids are beautiful!

bethany i love the photos! it's nice to be reminded that there are quaint farms in other parts of the country. sometimes i forget that and it makes leaving here seem unbearable! i love that photo of selah in the carseat. aspen gets that look on her face too of utter blankness, and with the binky in it's just so cute!
