Hello again! So, this past weekend was VERY busy for us. We've already told you that we went to the NC State game (and that was after we had our Little Gym session and some friends over for a pre-game party). Well Sunday, we went to Hill Ridge Farms, which is a big farm that has hay rides, animals, a pumpkin patch and lots of other fun activities for kids. Along with us was Randy, Sara and Gracie AND Grant's parents decided to come up to join us (they just can't make it very long without seeing the little one! :)

We had a great time and the girls got to spend lots of time running around and hanging out as little buddies! Here are tons of pics and videos for you all to see the fun we had.

Here's Olivia running around the Hay Maze:

There was a cool tunnel that the girls LOVED running through. It made for some cool pictures, too!

Then we went to check out all the animals they had there.

Silly Girls:

Here's Olivia going down the slide - a bit of a hard landing, though!

The girls both loved the HUGE sandbox that they had:

One of the really cool things they had was a room filled with corn kernels. Although, after playing in it - I later found a handful of corn kernels in Olivia's diaper when we got home! ha ha

Before we could leave for the day, we had to do the hay ride. Here's a family shot on the hay ride on the way to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins:

Then we got to go pick out our pumpkins . . . . so many to choose from . . .

Then after we selected our pumpkins, it was back onto the hay ride to head back to the main part of the farm. Here's another family pic:

Well, that was about all from that trip. We all enjoyed ourselves and it was nice to spend the day with family and close friends. Next weekend Grant and I are heading off to a wedding on Sunset Beach, NC without the little one! This will only be the 2nd time we've been away from Olivia and the last time it was only for one night - this will be the whole weekend! My parents are coming up to watch Olivia for us (thanks guys!). And we are looking forward to sleeping in and a nice weekend at the beach (though it will be cold and we'll miss our little one!). Until next time, take care!
