Since Ed and Jamie’s wedding was Friday night, we still had all of Saturday and Sunday left of our weekend.
GrandBob and Suzette came over to the house on Saturday. We ate lunch and headed out to what I thought was going to be a pumpkin patch. There were some pumpkins but it definitely wasn’t a pumpkin patch. The major attraction was a 7 acre corn maze. It was pretty neat but it was SO hot outside that we only did half of the maze. The kids seemed to enjoy the half we did do. Will loved finding each new post and calling out the number on it. They had lots of other fun things to do as well. They had a hayride, a cow-train ride, a corn launcher, water balloon sling shots, a playground, duck races, and tetherball. We did most of the stuff there. We played tetherball and were all laughing so hard.
We got home from our afternoon activities around 3:30pm and rested for a few minutes and then Janice arrived to watch the kids. Drew, Bob, Suzette and I headed to the Wake game that started at 6:30pm. Another sad night for the Deacs.
Sunday we went to church and then to Drew’s grandmother’s 87th birthday party. It was a nice little party for her. It was nice to see some of the family and the kids got to play with their 2nd cousin, J.J.
That was an action-packed weekend and we are all still trying to recover. The kids seem to do better on less sleep than Drew and I. We must be getting old!
So here are more pictures from the weekend!
Lindy eating cereal for the first time on Saturday. More Halloween shirts! In the corn maze! The corn launcher. Aiming for the bull’s-eye. He hit the bull's-eye at least once. GrandBob and the sling slots. His water balloons kept falling out of the sling shot when pulling it back :) Yeah baby! I hit the bull’s-eye! Riding the cow train with the kids. I am so glad I rode with Lindy. The guy driving the tractor took off and was swerving all over the place and was going pretty darn fast. Lindy never would have been able to hold on by herself. I kept yelling at Will to hold on! Will LOVED this slide. He did it over and over and over again. On they hayride. Duck races. The girls won!! Drew and Bob playing tetherball! Our little pumpkins! Sunday morning we were getting ready for church and I walked out of the nursery. I came back to this……she’d pulled her own little bloomers up high and then crossed her arms all modestly when I took the picture! Will laid on the ground listening to music while I was dressing Lindy. Of course she wanted to join him. I think they were kind of tired from the weekend! At Nanny’s birthday party. This little stool was a big hit with the kids!Lindy with her second cousin, J.J. We posed them like a church directory picture. Too funny!! A few of Nanny’s great-grandkids. The birthday girl! Lindy and her buddy, Uncle Curtis. Nanny and her kids: Mike, Bob, and Joan Nanny and some family: J.J, Candace, Mike, Joan, and Abby Our family with Nanny.
That wraps up our jam packed weekend. It was a great weekend! Celebrating marriage, fall, and birthdays. All good things!
