Friday Fun

We had so much fun as a family tonight! For the first year, Naples, TX (a small town close to ours) has an "A 'maze' N Pumpkin Patch." A friend from church told us about it, so we decided to go check it out tonight. They only charge for the kiddos ($5 each) and along with entrance into the land of fun, each child gets to pick their own mini pumpkin to take home. I, of course, took lots of pictures, so we'll let the pictures tell the story...

When we first walked in, Riley only had eyes for the haystack

Some friends from church just happened to be there, too, so Riley had a good time playing with them on top of the haystack.

Our little man has become quite the brave one. I didn't think he'd be willing to go down this steep slide, but he did it!

So maybe the first time down was a bit shaky...

But he climbed back up there and did it over and over again

This nice man took Ella from me almost immediately so I could take pictures of Riley. She was okay with sitting on top of the baby slide, but when she started going down, her happiness ended! Poor girl was scared to death!

I bet he went down this slide 20 or 30 times! He'd get to the bottom and say, "I'm gonna do that again!"

And this little lady did not like the hay!

Once we finally got him off the haystack, Riley and his daddy competed in a sack race. 
Hilarious story: While Riley was on top of the haystack, our friends from church went over and did the sack race. We asked Riley if he wanted to be in the race with them and he said no. So when he was ready to get down from the haystack and go to the sack race, he said, "Daddy, do you want to go play sacrifice with me?" We've been reading about Abraham and Isaac lately (Abraham's willingness to sacrifice Isaac), so our precious preacher's son heard "sacrifice" when we said "sack race." :)

Next was tug-of-war. Riley worked hard trying to pull his daddy!

This little girl LOVES her daddy!

Thank you, Lord, for my family!

Fun times in the corn trough

SO not happy about being placed on some more hay!

Here's the pumpkin Riley picked out!

After playing hard for over an hour, we loaded up and headed back to Hughes Springs for a yummy dinner at a local buffet. A great way to end a great evening with some of the most precious people in my life. I'm thankful to be able to celebrate this time of year with my man and the two sweeties the Lord has blessed us with! I hope you've all had a wonderful start to your weekend, too!
