Our trip to the pumpkin patch 2016

Summer is my favorite time of the year because I love to be super hot all the time but Fall is a really close second. There are so many fun outdoor activities in the Fall and with 4 kids there is nothing better than being able to go play outside. We never miss the pumpkin patch as you can see here in our past outings in 201220132014 (I can't believe I didn't blog our 2015 outing.). Now that the kids are getting older, they actually ask to go, how awesome is that.

What I also love about the pumpkin patch outings is the fact that it's a great opportunity for awesome family pictures and we know I love taking pictures of my kids. This year my mom was out of town and couldn't join us so it was just the 2 of us with all 4 kids. It was chaotic and exhausting but I am so happy we did it.

We even managed to get a great family picture :). Check out our baby girl on her first of many pumpkin patch outings. I love my family
This particular farm had a huge maze and our big boy was hell bent on conquering the maze. We got lost in that maze for over an hour you guys. We walked over 3 miles. My Tman was super excited because we made him the leader and everyone else had to follow him. He even got a stick and he used it to keep his brothers in line, that kid I tell you
Telling his brothers they couldn't cross that line :) :)
Hubby carried the baby and manned the stroller. Is anything sexier than a man carrying a baby? I don't think so
While hubby took care of the baby, I chased the boys around the maze and the farm. Chilling with my boys
Check out my leader over there showing us the way out
We are really into making videos lately so I made a video of the boys walking through the maze.
After the maze, we went straight for the giant inflatable pumpkin that the kids could jump on. My boys were in heaven, this is their favorite thing to do. I just love this action shot of my boys, if you couldn't tell they were excited to get on this pumpkin
The smiles were never ending

They were running and jumping then running some more

Tman is a riot, look at him doing a crazy bounce and jump :)

My boys didn't want to get off the giant pumpkin. 20 minutes later we literally had to pry them of that thing. We promised them that we would come back to it and that's the only way we got them off
We then went on a hayride, we needed the rest or at least the boys did.
After the hayride I wanted to get a few pictures before we left because I could tell everyone was getting tired. Trying to pose all 4 kids proved to be a challenge, we did get this awesome gem of our 4 little pumpkins. I love these kids of mine and I just pinch myself every time because I can't believe they are all mine
Some nice lady saw us struggling and offered to take a family picture. I was so happy because hubby already told me not to even try to ask someone to take our pictures since the kids were kind of crazy. Thank you stranger, that was so kind of you.

I love this series of pictures so much because it really captures the chaos of our family. Come on guys, get ready for the picture
Then Tman over there starts to pretend punch his dad in the face, at least Bean is smiling
Oh there is that smile Tman, too bad Jbird is not really looking
We went back to jump on the giant pumpkin before we packed up to go home. We had planned to go pick a pumpkin and do more before we left but we were just so tired. It's really tiring dragging this six pack anywhere for a few hours. When we got home, we all took a glorious 2-hour nap. It was so well deserved.

Later that day, my uncle came to visit with his family. Before they came, I got these great pictures of my youngest babies

Check out Bean's sweet face, this kid is so adorable and looks so grown now
Check out my sweet baby girl in her adorable outfit. I want to put this girl in a tutu every single day :)
My uncle's wife and their youngest daughter. Emilia is going to have girlfriends close in age in the family, I am so excited for her
My cousin holding baby girl
And you know me with family pictures :). So many little kids in our family, such a blessing. Are you loving Jbird with his big cheese face there :).
We had a great day hanging out at the pumpkin patch. It was a perfect day for an outing and the weather was absolutely gorgeous. My boys want to go back this weekend so we told Tman that if he had a great week at school we would. Pumpkin patch for the win. Do you guys go to the pumpkin patch during this season?
