Pumpkin Patch Day

Last Saturday, Chris spontaneously thought we should all go to the Pumpkin Patch for the afternoon. So again missing naps, we loaded up the girls and took them to a new to us pumpkin patch about an hour away.

While Xiomara snuggled in close to me,

 Zoelle roamed freely in the hay maze,

and Meridian got slightly scared by the donkey trying to figure out if little girls were edible.

What started out as a day in which I wasn't sure I would enjoy, ended up being one that I loved!

It occurred to me as I snapped the picture below, the incredible memories that we have made as a family this Summer and Fall.

I hope that we can continue on with these memories, spontaneous or not, and that the girls will always look fondly back on this time in their lives.

Do you ever take spontaneous trips? If you do, where do you go?


  1. Yes! Both Tim & I are the spontaneous types! We love hopping in the car for day-trips (or even weekend trips) without any advance notice. :)

  2. I wish at times I was more spontaneous Stephanie! I've been impressed with how much I have been lately and hope that it continues to some extent. :)

  3. We do, it just kinda depends though. Weekends are spontaneous usually. After church we just kinda go with how we feel. It's nice, yet I will always crave a planned out day. I'm learning to let go of some of that crazy control I have. Some of our spontaneous trips are to the bike trail, Granny's Pantry, Glendalough, usually more local places than not.

  4. Salena-In the past, my weekend were not spontaneous, it is only now that we are ok with skipping naps and just living life the way it is. Making memories. It's been nice! :)
