What went down at the pumpkin patch...

Sorry, people. But I'm drowning in laundry over here...can barely come up for air before another load is done in the dryer.

So I'm leaving you with an oldie but goodie from back in the day...hope you enjoy it!

What went down at the pumpkin patch this year...

We took the kids to a pumpkin patch last Saturday. Good times, as always. Kinda...sorta

The first area the kids wanted to go to was the petting zoo, of course, because what's a day at the pumpkin patch without risking the chance to be infected with E coli .

Oh, those unfortunate animals. I would imagine if they could talk, this is what they might say....

"Hi there, little boy. You look friendly enough. Wanna pet my soft, fuzzy ears?"




"I asked if you wanted to pet my soft fuzzy ears....not spit on them. Good God, you humans are so disgusting"



"Uh....okay, now I'm feeling somewhat overwhelmed. How many of there ARE you? Where are your parents? Who's freakin idea was it to sell me to the petting zoo in the first place? This really bites..."



"Oh no, oh dear God, there's FOUR Of them....think of a happy place, think of a happy place, think of a happy place...."



"Yo, Ricky Bobby, look...I found a kid who's not being closely supervised. His mom is more interested in taking a picture for her blog than protecting her beloved child. Let's run him down and strip search him for food. Then she can put THAT on her blog."



"Guys, would you look at that? The boy here thinks he's got some kinda super powers or something? He thinks he can scare us off by sticking his hand out while saying "go away, goats". Isn't that cute? Boy, I'll tell ya, that's a good way to lose a finger or two. Oooooooh, I'm soooo scared...bwahhahaha"



"Uh, yeah....do you realize you're trying to feed me a piece of my own poop? No thanks.....why don't you go offer it to your little brother who was trying to ride me like a horse a few minutes ago? Tell him it's an M&M"



"Hey, kid....your face says it all. Oh yeah, fresh from the oven, just the way I like it. If any of the other goats come near you, I got first dibs..."



"Come on, little dude, just tell us how you're able to hide your horns so well and then we'll leave you alone..."



"No worries, baby girl. I eat boogers too....beggars can't be choosers, ya know? Now hand over that fresh, juicy one you just picked"



"Kid, you are taking way too long to open up that nut for me....I'm totally gonna bite your hand off in a minute. And, trust me, you don't want that to happen, it could get ugly around here. Why? Because sharks are attracted to blood, that's why. Okay, THAT made no sense....sheesh, what is IN these nuts?"



Next was the play area, where Bella had to learn the hard way why I told her that wearing a skirt to the pumpkin patch was NOT a good idea. Let's just say that the smile on her face quickly disappeared once she was at the bottom of that haystack. When will she learn....Mommy always knows best.



I got nothing for these next 2 pictures....but they just looked so darn cute, I had to include them. Horse swings made out of rubber tires...very clever. Added bonus: they couldn't get off of them without help so at least I knew where 2 out of 4 of my kids were for a good 10 minutes.



Daddy, get me down and stop laughing at me. I'm all freaked out here. You better hope and pray that I'm not the one in charge of your care when you're old and dicrepid....I'm just sayin



What's that? Do I want to get down from the tree? Oh, now you think you're being funny, right? I got a funny for you....last night, when you left the table to go to the bathroom, I licked your pizza....and then I sneezed all over it. Oh and by the way, did I mention that I've been feeling kinda congested and just plain icky these last couple of days? I sure hope it's not the swine flu, don't you?



Show off...climbed up there all by himself. Aw, too bad he doesn't have a clue how to get down.



Hmmmm, Landon kinda reminds me of someone in this picture but I can't quite place who it is......



Oh yeah, now I remember....here's Johnny.....



Wow, what do ya know....Charlie Brown finally found the Great Pumpkin. Although, personally, I think Garrett resembles Linus more.....minus the blanket and the know-it-all attitude.



Awwwww, so sweet....the big twins helped the little twins climb up the huge hay bale so I could get a picture of the 4 of them together.



Not so sweet...they abandoned one of their little brothers immediately after the picture was taken.

....Uh, guys? Hello? Where did everyone go? How am I supposed to get down?



Cole: I wanna be the donkey butt first...

Garrett: No, I wanna be the donkey butt...

Mommy: Stop arguing....everyone will get a chance to be the donkey's butt.

Daddy: I bet that's not something you ever expected to come out of your mouth when we were trying to have kids.

Eva Gallant said...

What awesome photos. How do you rate having all four of those kids be so cute? Not an ugly puss in the bunch!

Shell said...

Hilarious! I could totally see my boys fighting to be the donkey's butt.

And the petting zoo- ick. I get so grossed out by those.

Kim said...

Thanks so much for the laughs this morning! I especially love the part with the goat going after Bella's boogers. I don't know how you thought all that up, but it was hilarious!

So sorry to hear the laundry monster is taking you down. I don't know how you do it with four kids. Good luck!

Love this.

My daughter once pet a goat who then tried to BUTT her. I was freaking out screaming at Tom to, "Grab the baby, grab the baby!" The goat was probably all, "Mwahaha."

LOL! Great post! Your pictures were great!

Samantha said...

I remember when you posted this, and I nearly laughed my "butt" off at the "donkey butt" conversation. I mean really...that's hilarious. Priceless really. I remember telling my hubby about that, and he laughed his "butt" off. I'm going to go read it again, just to laugh some more!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Very cute! don't drown in laundry!!

Clueless_Mama said...

Thanks for reposting this. I had missed this one and it was a crack up. I love seeing all the fun pictures and what the animals were thinking. LOL

Hope you caught up on some laundry!

katie said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your writing. Hilarious. I'm glad you re-posted this for the people like me who (unfortunately) haven't been reading since the beginning. Your kids are adorable. According to the awesome Marianne, I think we may be semi-neighbors--woot. woot. You're definitely a celebrity blogger so I'm so excited about that. Anyways, have a great week. Good luck folding laundry.

Deb said...

Bet you never thought you'd hear your kids say "I wanna to be the donkey butt first..." I love that you captured this day on film and in words. What sweet memories :)

I hear you on the laundry thing. That's why we all have two weeks of underwear each in our arsenal at our house.

I figure that if the children are alive when my husband gets home at the end of the day, I've done my job.
