Pumpkins and Auction (last week)

So, sorry I didn't write last week. These past two weeks have been pretty busy for me.

So, last week, I ended up going to a pumpkin patch 3 times! I went on Tuesday with Robert's school field trip, on Thursday with Isabelle's school field trip, and then again on Saturday as a family outing! We have plenty of pumpkins at our house now.

I was really sad, but when I got to the pumpkin patch with Robert, I realized that I didn't have a memory card in my camera, so I couldn't take any pictures. But, Robert got to see animals, have a hay ride tour through pumpkin head people that looked like superheros, the 3 little pigs, even Elvis!

For Isabelle's trip I got to take Austin, so that was really fun. They got to feed some animals. Isabelle just laughed as the goat licked the oats off of her hand, she loved it!

She also had no fear scaling the hay pyramid. It was cute to see. They got to pick out their own pumpkins and both Austin and Isabelle picked out the very first pumpkin they could see and were then ready to leave. Austin had a little harder time holding his than did Bella.

On Saturday we got to meet up with Mima and Papa to get our pumpkins in Canby. There were so many activities for the kids to do there! They had animals, mazes, bounce houses, and a pony ride. We wanted the kids to go on the pony ride, because most of the time Robert is just not ok with animals. But, he actually went very willingly and loved riding the horse, ok so it was a pony.
Isabelle would wave to everyone the whole time she was on the pony. People were asking how she knew to do a perfect parade wave!
Austin had a great time as well. Here are some more fun pics from the pumpkin patch....

They had some huge produce there. We found some giant apples, as well as the award winning pumpkin for the year. It was like over 1,400 lbs!

Later on Saturday I was in charge of a YW silent Auction to raise money for girls camp. I was so nervous that wouldn't make much money. But, luckily it went very well. It was during a ward birthday party, that we combined with the Spanish Branch, and did a thank you to our old bishop. The whole activity was kind of a mish mash of whatever, but I think that helped our auction. We ended up earning over $700, which means we don't have to earn any more money this year!!!
