This weekend, we took Dexter to the pumpkin patch. My mom and dad came with hubby, Dex, and I. It was soo much fun! Actually, first we went to this little October Festival thing at our favorite Farm Market. It's like 40 minutes away from us now, so we kinda double dipped and stocked up on awesomely fresh meat for our freezer too!
Anyway, it was so much fun. My mom and I took Dexter on a tractor pulled hay ride, which he LOVED. Seriously, what is it with little boys and cars/tractors? He was so excited the whole time, it just made my heart melt. Later on, Daddy (and my mom) took Dexter on a horse and "buggy" ride. I use that word loosely because essentially it was also a wagon, just a little nicer!
Then, we headed home for a bit, (my parent's home that is), Dex had some lunch, napped, then off to the pumpkin patch. Last year, Dex was only around 6 months old, so we could put him in a bunch of pumpkins, he'd smile all cute, we'd take pictures. This year? He was much more interested in running around between the pumpkins and trying to pick them up. It was insanely adorable, but made me a little weepy to see how big my "baby" has grown. Though, it's really fun to see how excited he gets about everything!
Oh and just as a refresher....here was my "baby" at the pumpkin patch last year...
