Pumpkin Patch

One Sunday afternoon in October we went to the pumpkin patch nearby. It was a beautiful fall afternoon and we all had a great time!

The girls holding their "little" pumpkins that they picked out.

They even had pony rides there!

This picture cracks me up, it looks like she's riding fast but really its a pretty slow trot.

Sadie's turn to ride the pony.

Such a big girl

Then they went on a little train ride around the park

I love how Rylee has her arm around Sadie, such a good big sister

Rylee the jack-o-lantern

Sadie the scare-crow (this one is ready to give you a smooch)

Running through the hay maze

Climbing the big hay pile

Daddy joined them at the top of the big pile

Love this picture of my sweet Sadie

The girls checking out all the pumpkins

Rylee found hers

Sadie found hers

Wow, I just realized I took a ton of pictures from that day! So much fun...we'll definitely be going back there next fall!

Apple Orchard

The one weekend we were home in September we headed on over to the apple orchard. The girls both enjoyed picking their apples. Rylee liked picking them and then collecting a whole bag full and Sadie enjoyed picking them and then eating them. We went on a perfect fall day and as you can see from all of the pictures, we all had a great time!

Random Summer Pics

These pictures are pretty old but I was going through pictures on my computer and I found a bunch of random ones from the summer that I thought I'd put up here.

At the beginning of the summer, Rylee learned how to ride her bike. She got a princess bike and a princess helmet and loves them! She seemed like such a big girl to me on her bike.

We have a big pool in our neighborhood but sometimes it was easier just to get out our little pool for our yard. The girls had lots of fun in the little pool and especially loved the slide!

In May Brad finished a HUGE project in our yard and we are so happy with it! He leveled off our side yard by building a big brick wall. He fenced it in and then built a swingset for the girls. Before he did all this we never used this part of our yard. After he was done we pretty much spent the whole summer playing back there. The girls love their swing set! And a huge thank you to Brad for working so hard on this for them!

One of the girls favorite things to do this summer was draw with sidewalk chalk. For some reason I didn't take any picture of this even though they were constantly doing it. Our driveway was always the most colorful on the street :) These 2 pictures are of them sitting on their princess chairs in our driveway. You can see hopscotch under their chairs and a few other chalk markings on our driveway.

Princess Dress Up

For the past year, Rylee has been into princesses and "dress up". Now that Sadie is old enough she also likes to join in on "dress up" with her sister. It is so cute to watch those two play and giggle together. These pictures were just from a random night that they decided to dress up (over their jammies).

Our Pretty Princesses

Princess Rylee

When Rylee dresses up she likes to put on all the accessories (shoes, necklaces, bracelets, crown, sunglasses, and her princess CD player that plays "princess" music)...she goes all out!

Princess Sadie

Ring around the rosy...

...we all fall down! (then they giggle and do it again)
