Orange Cuteness

We had such a beautiful week-end here and since we had long planned this to be our pumpkin patch week-end....we were very happy to have such nice weather! We spent the day on Saturday with our friends Maira, Victor and little Maria. The girls got to pick apples for the first time and they loved it! They took the job of apple picking very was so cute to watch!! Ella got to have a pony ride...which may or may not have been her first memory is failing me on that one! They were able to pet some farm animals and each pick their own pumpkin. It was a blessing to be able to spend the day with our friends!























Okay....keeping it real here for some of my friends...and you know who you are. : )
Of course the day was way too overstimulating for one little miss and you will see her BaBa exiting with her when we knew she just could not take any more.

And in case you can't see "The Look" it is closer. And I know just which ones of you are
looking at the familiar site with a smile on your face.


Hope you all have a wonderful week!!!!

Such adorable pictures of the girls and love the family portrait! Looks like a fun day. Sorry there was a "moment", but at least you were able to go and there was only a "moment". Making progress! Hope you had a great weekend.

Chelsea looks just like you!

I loved the pictures. It looks like a great day. I've always wanted to take the kids apple picking but I haven't done it yet. Well, our across the street neighbor has an apple tree in her yard, and she lets us pick her apples, so they've done that.....

And I loved the reality photo. with "the look". One day you will look back on these times and they will be a distant memory.

Have a great week!

Hey Michelle:

We were just there today! I need to talk to you about a SN list I need to put together! We are using Heritage and they will start to match us in November! With CCAI we would not be matched for at least a year. They had 250 families in front of us. Heritage has only 30 or so.

my3 kids said...

what an awesome day you all had. So fun to spend it with friends. Love the girls all in matching shirts. Emma was looking at the pictures with me and said "look they all match" Sorry your hubby had to carry Miss Sophie out upset. Not a fun way to end the day I am sure. Hugs to you my friend xoxo

JShannon said...

Looks like everyone had fun, at least for a while anyway, lol. You took really nice pictures. I actually really like the one of Dave and Sophie exiting too.

Jill said...

Sweet photos. I just love pumpkin patch time!! We will be having ours this weekend!

Michelle said...

What fun pictures!! That is a whole lot of orange cuteness! I love the girls holding hands. Too cute!

p.s. Those bottom two look like me carrying Mia out of the last pumpkin patch we went to! I should have taken photos as proof!

The Byrd's Nest said...

I am rolling on the floor laughing because I was just fixing to write my comment of "Looks like little "Sopie" had a great day" until I got to the last pictures! You KNOW I can relate to this girlfriend!

Krista ~ Bits and pieces said...

OH MY GOODNESS~ it is all so fabulous, the girls, the shirts, the photos - all of it FAB U LOUS!!!!!!

Heather said...

How fun is the pumpkin patch! Love all of the pictures & especially the matching shirts.

Amie@HeartSmiles said...

Ashley Winters said...

There's no place like a pumpkin patch to get such great photos. I also love the matching shirts!

Laura L. said...

Oops, looks like someone else has already tagged you. Well, I did too and hopefully you'll have time to play along. :)
Have a great day!

The Princess's Mommy said...

Precious pictures! Love the orange shirts! Too cute! I'm glad you got to enjoy most of the day before the meltdown! Praying for you and your sweet girl!

Love you,

Donna Geer said...

That second to last picture is just so touching. What broad shoulders your wonderful hubby has. And I don't mean that physically. It's just so poinant. He will do what needs to be done with strength to be sure his little one is safe. Both of you do. Some day she will look back at the picture and weep, knowing how much you both love her. Sweet. Nice to see pic's of you and Dave too. :)

Miss ya.

Paula said...

Jewels of My Heart said...

I loved reading your list of 7 things above.... I had to smile because we share some simularities.....
What a special day!!!!!! Loved the pics of your two little beauties. What fun!
I know the meltdown stinks but oh, how it makes my heart smile to see her enjoying herself.... God's healing and peace.
