Sunday with Abby and Grandma Genie - Pumpkin patch and Sunday fun-day

Today is the last day for Grandma Genie and Abby to visit. The kids thankfully slept pretty well last night and after we all got ready this morning we headed over to the pumpkin patch that's near our neighborhood. We got there shortly after it opened at 10am and we're glad we got there early. It was only in the mid 80's but there were no clouds in the sky and no shade at the pumpkin patch we got pretty hot pretty fast. As the day went on, more and more people showed up and it got pretty crowded too.

Grandma Genie treated us all to the admission and we also got some food to feed the goats.

Connor liked feeding the goats and Paige loved all the animals. She spent a lot of time looking at all the birds and really liked the pigs even though they were just laying in the sun sleeping.

There were all kinds of things to play with.

After the pumpkin patch, we ate at Sonny's and then went to Target to do some shopping. Abby got us lunch as well as some toys and games for the kids. Grandma Genie picked out some toys for the kids as well.

When we got home, the kids played with their new things with Abby and Grandma for a while and then we went out to swim again. It wasn't as hot in our screen, but it was still warm enough to swim for a little while.

Abby did some neat tricks with the kids!

After swimming we made a fire in the firepit, made some S'mores, and ate our dinner outside.

Now it's bedtime and the kids are getting ready for bed and talking to Abby and Grandma for the last time before they have to leave in the morning. Abby and Genie are taking an early flight in the morning and Andrea is going to take them very early, probably before the kids are even awake.

It's hard to overstate how much fun the kids had with our visitors. I'm always amazed at how much time and attention Abby and Genie have for our children. Connor and Paige seem to have enjoyed every second of the weekend and we're so thankful that we have family that is so loving and willing to come visit.
