Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday was a great day in more ways than one. First of all, it was our pup's 4th birthday! Which in dog years makes him around our age! Although it seems like he has infinitely more energy. Before celebrating his birthday we took Mila to the Pumpkin Harvest at the Littleton Museum. I had been waiting to take her to this because I thought it would be a good outing for us all. It turned out I was right :) It was great because grandma and granpa brought Elias and Joe and Sara visited with Mark before they went to a shoot. It was a bit of a chilly fall morning but we had Mila dressed warm and wrapped in a blanket. I didn't have a chance to go buy a wagon which would have been perfect because poor Marc ended up carrying the pumpkin we picked, luckily we weren't there much longer after that. As I said, it was a great outing. Elias had fun running everywhere and getting lost in the kiddie maze. (Which is a really cute maze for the short people and even though they can see the outside they work hard to find they're way out. It's neat to watch their growing minds work). We even got him to sit still for a couple of pictures. Mila looked adorable because she was wearing a knit hat that Marc's colleague's wife had knit for her that looks like a pumpkin. She was the cutest little pumpkin there! :) See for yourself

Our Little Pumpkin

We timed it perfect because she wasn't yet ready for a nap until just as we were leaving. Can't wait until next year when she'll be walking! I plan to take a wagon for sure!

When we got home, and while she napped, I made Drake a birthday cake. The perfect blend of peanut butter, honey and shredded carrots... some of his favorite snacks. Marc took him for a ride to Sportsman's Warehouse where he loves to be around people and when they got back we sang to him. Oh, my pup, seems like just yesterday we brought you home and you pooped on the carpet :) Here's to many more healthy and youthful years!

Happy 4th Birthday Pup!
