Saturday we spent the afternoon at Guthrie Pumpkin Farm and Corn Maze (there's a cute little video about the farm and what it takes to "raise" pumpkins if you click that link :-) ).
First we went through the maze. The kids took turns leading us and McKayla is actually the one that led us out of the maze. WTG McKayla!
After the Corn Maze, we headed over to the petting "zoo". They had the CUTEST little critters in there and McKayla and Chris even got to bottle feed the calves! You could also feed the other critters if you put a quarter in the machine. :-)
Then we headed over to the obstacle course. The kids took off running through them and McKayla "won" but only b/c she didn't go through the poles or jump over the hay bales. LOL
Right beside the obstacle course was the "Hippity Hop Track". What I wished I'd gotten on film was John demonstrating to McKayla what you were supposed to do when he promptly fell backwards. Haha! McKayla got a kick outta seeing Daddy fall and proceeded to "fall" all over the place. :-)
Next on the "agenda" was the hay ride and pumpkin picking.
Originally, I was really upset with the kids for not cooperating for the picture below....I had this certain idea in my head and they wouldn't work with me. However, when I got home and saw this, I had to smile as it turned out pretty good. I LOVE the look McKayla is giving her brother and the look on his face too. This screw-up actually turned out better than what I had envisioned. <3
Here, I'll zoom in for you :-)

Lastly, it was time for sliding, tire climbing and steer roping.
It was a great day spent with the family.
Hardly any arguing or yelling between siblings, all smiles and laughter. Couldn't have asked for a better day. :-)
