Our 2nd year to the Underwood Family Farm pumpkin Patch! I love this place. There is so much to do here. I realized after, though, that we couldn’t do any of the games or watch any of the shows. Just running around the patch and one cow train ride was enough to get Liam and Jace exhausted. And the weather wasn’t very fall like. lt was a really hot day. Liam somewhat enjoyed a snow cone. He had a few bites, then spilled it all over himself after I offered him a piece of my burger and he screamed out “NO!” Haha!! Gotta love toddlers! Tim and I had these delicious burgers. Yeah, we scarfed those down in 10 seconds. The idea of sitting down under the shade at a picnic table sounds amazing, but that doesn’t happen when you have 2 balls of energy. The pumpkin picking was fun. We got a couple of pumpkins in the wagon and, as usual, Tim pulled the boys all throughout. However, Jace couldn’t sit still for very long so we hurried to the checkout. Didn’t even get to use our tickets. Good news is, we managed to leave there with our two boys unscathed.
It’s October and it’s still blazing hot outside. It would have been perfect if we had some fall weather during Liam’s first preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch. I think we all left with sun tans. Nonetheless, Liam had a blast. He played on tricycles, ran on planks, and jumped up and down on hay stacks. We even went on a hayride across the street. It’s a new addition to the patch. During the ride you try and spot the scarecrow, spiderman hanging from a tree, and other cool things along the way. Kids loved it and they all went back to school with a mini pumpkin to keep!
Liam’s birthday celebration at school comes with a crown and a cupcake. Lucky for us, we got to see him blow out his candle. “Don’t touch the flame Liam!”
Before Liam’s birthday bash we had quite a few moments that I will never forget, especially the time when Jace spilled my boiling hot tea on his arm. Worst parent of the year? That’s exactly how I felt after the incident. Just when you think you got it, you don’t. It was around 6am and I placed my mug on the arm of the couch. 2 seconds later Jace knocked it right over. Good thing he’s a strong little guy and babies heal fast. I mean really fast. It took about a week to heal. He had a 2nd degree burn. Ouch! My poor baby. It didn’t keep him from smiling though!
Then there was Liam’s 2nd hair cut. How did this turn out? Look at this speed racer! Fresh cut in his favorite race car ever!! It was a little rough in the beginning, but thankfully his hair stylist was patient and really sweet. He even got a lollipop!
He say’s “cheese” with his eyes closed. We were invited to a Hello Kitty birthday party in Northridge. My friend’s daughter turned 1 years old. Super cute party, but soooooo hot out. So hot, you couldn’t slide down the inflatable moon jump. We had to use towels. Liam was unstoppable regardless. Look at that face!
Here’s a funny moment… One thing that Jace does almost every day at home is hang out in the hamper. We call it his “jacuzzi.”
Time for a check up! Jace’s arm looks great. Liam kept his cool at the doc’s office. So cool, he even told the pediatrician, “mommy burned baby brother’s arm with hot tea!” Thanks Liam.
Another perfect moment to capture my boys’ outside. If you don’t know by now, I love taking photos in natural lighting. This is right before walking into Hobby Lobby to do some birthday party shopping. Again, blazing hot out. This was September and we were freaking melting.
It’s a popsicle party at Grandma’s house.
