our annual trip to black island farms was as good as ever. we met up with the jeremy ruesch clan, as per tradition, and geared up for a fun evening. it's so fun that brooklyn remembers it now and looks forward to it. she was so excited all day! for kendall, this was her second time so she probably won't remember it until after next year. but it's definitely a tradition that's here to stay. we love it!
the only thing we really did differently this year was to head out on the pumpkin patch tractor ride very first. we usually wait, but then we deal with mosquitoes and chilly weather. but this time it was perfect. and we were all very happy with our pumpkin choices!
brooklyn was especially proud of hers and insisted on holding it on her lap the whole way back.
the best family picture we could get. the girls have become super difficult when it comes to getting good pictures!
after the pumpkins were loaded in the car, we headed out to the courtyard for all the activities. kendall loved the animals! brooklyn was very excited about the pig races and very sad that her pig lost this year. the slides were a hit and everything else in between.
i took my turn riding the train this year. james is just too big, and we didn't trust kendall in one by herself quite yet.
we were done with basically everything before the crowds came. that's the way to do it! we didn't wait in any lines and we basically had the place to ourselves. after that night every year, it officially feels like halloween season. i'm always giddy on the way home so excited for what's to come in the next few weeks. these traditions really are the best!
