We had such a fun, busy day yesterday! We took the boys to the pumpkin patch with some of our friends from playgroup in the morning. It was a little cold when we first arrived, but it was actually pretty comfortable weather-wise while we were there :) There were so many fun things for the kids to do, there was a big mesh cage filled with rubber balls and a sort of castle wall built out of hall bales for the kids to mock-battle (this was also fun for the grown-ups! hee hee) There was also a huge hay slide with sleds for the kids to ride on the way down, a zip line, pumpkin tether balls, an awesome (LONG!) hay ride, a barrel train with a speed-demon driver and these long irrigation tubes the kids could roll balls down like a chute. Aside from the kiddo activities, there was also a 10 acre corn maze that we did not venture into, we probably would have been there all day if we did!
After the pumpkin patch we headed to a friend's house for a birthday celebration! It was super fun with an amazing food-spread and yummy hot apple cider! The boys had a ton of fun having balloon-lightsaber battles with their friends, running around in the sunny backyard, and watching a little star wars! We always have a great time with our buddies!
We weren't able to stay for the whole party because we had over-lapping parties that day (what are the odds!) so we hopped back into the car and headed to another friend's house! We arrived about an hour late, but this was a "science party" and we showed up just in time for the experiments! The big boys got to build baking soda volcanoes, make slime, create pudding masterpieces, and blow off soda bottle geysers!! They had a blast! They even each received their own lab coat, ID badge and clipboard to conduct their experiments, it was super cute :)
We made it back home in time for dinner and the kids couldn't stop talking about all the fun things they did that day. I agree, it was an awesome fun day - but I am really glad we have a wide open schedule after church this morning!!
