Our New Guy - Stephen, Pumpkin & The Pumpkin Patch

I know, I know I ought to be done quilting my DOG BOM

But...we had this cutie pie come visit.
And so I had to remove my quilting from the dining room table.
Stephen is the guy that is about to take my daughter away. Yep, I know it deep down, but I'm in denial. hahaha

He's from the Denver area, and she plans to move to there to get to know him better.  He came out for a few days, and fit perfectly into our family.  He's wonderful, and he's wonderful to my little girl.

So in the morning we had waffles and then the WHOLE family met at Banducci's Pumpkin Patch. This was our 10th year!  I think that makes it a family tradition.  We were happy to have Stephen there for the first time. 
And it was Bruce's first time too.

Bruce: What do you do at the pumpkin patch?
Me: Uh, look at pumpkins (thinking that sounds lame!)

But we meander around in the fresh morning air and they have a pond with ducks and animals, and it's decorated so cute. Oh and the kids dress up.

 Also, new is this precious baby pony named Pumpkin. What a cute name.
She was only 3 weeks old...and so soft!  She got tired from being pet and went to lay down.
When she laid her little head down, she bonked it on the railing.  
Awww...She was so sweet.

Sometimes - it's more fun to just stand back and watch everything.
And I liked standing back and watching Bruce watch everything.

And highlight of the day - As 4 year old Lily says: Getting Lost! (in the Corn Maze)

We all made it out!

And lastly, I have been working on the cross stitch.
And really enjoying it.
