Last week we went to the Orr Family Farm which is a fall activity filled farm that is perfect for the girls ages. They have hay rides, a pumpkin patch, animal petting barn, play grounds, horse riding, corn maze, carousel, and a train ride. The girls loved it and from the pictures you can tell that we did too. :)
I think these little ladies are the greatest.
Hazel did great on the petal go carts. I think a little of my competitive spirit came out in her. :/ She was so determined and focus.
There was also this jumping pillow which I had never seen before. The only way I can describe it was like a giant waterbed filled with air.
Of course we had to do the horse rides. Hazel rode Annie and Hayden rode freckles.

Oh my goodness life with three children is busy. Not necessarily that we are doing a whole lot but just life as in getting everyone fed, clothed, cleaned and loved. It's like dealing cards. Everyone gets one and everyone has to learn that they have to be patient until its their turn again. Sometimes I can deal faster than others. ;) The girls are all growing fast. Ivy is now 2 months old. She is 12 pounds and 23 1/2 inches. She is obviously eating well and I can't really complain about her nights. Some are better than others, but most are good. She sleeps about 6 hours and then she has a 4 a.m. ish feeding and then another around 7. Hayden has become a kid in the past two months. She is 20 months which is still a baby to me. :) She is saying more and more words. Her latest are "elbow" and "love you". She got a little haircut which helped her toddler mullet but didn't help with the fact that she looks so much older now. Her favorite things are doing whatever Hazel is doing, putting dress up shoes on and reading animal books. Hazel will be 4 in about a month. She loves preschool. Her preschool teacher says she plays with everyone in her class and is very helpful and kind. At open house Hazel was asked to hold the flag and lead the pledge of allegiance. They make me a very proud mommy.
