Because I can't do this kind of activity by myself with the two boys without sweating in places you shouldn't sweat (let's be real here....of course I'll sweat even if someone goes with me because this is Houston in December after all!), I recruited my brother, Ryan, and his sweetie of a girlfriend, Kaylon, to help me wrangle these two little turkeys of mine. I'm sure they needed to be studying for a college final or, in Ryan's case, would rather be sleeping until 3 pm, but they gave me and the boys a few hours of their time and for that I'm super grateful. :) I couldn't have done it without them, and I know that C & P really enjoyed having them there to play with.
|Of course they wanted to climb all over that tractor! They are boys, after all.|
|It was a little windy... :)|
|C & Kaylon racing duckies by pumping water down their lane|
|They liked spending some time in "Little Farmerville" (for children ages 6 and under)|
|I can hear his giggle when I look at this. I absolutely love that laugh!|
|gotta fix those glasses after they wiggled off his nose as he landed off the slide :)|
|Thank goodness tall Uncle Ryan was there to rescue him from a part of the course that he wasn't big enough to maneuver through.|
|He lost a shoe, but he's still smiling!|
This roller slide was one of their favorite activities! Just look at all these HUGE SMILES! So fun!
|corn shooter.... Ryan aimed and Connar pushed the trigger (not sure which one had more fun..)|
|They seriously LOVED this bouncy bubble! The giggles and smiles were nonstop!|
Connar wanted to ride the train that goes out to the Christmas trees field, so we bought tickets and played nearby while we waited for the train to return to the station.
|Yay! He roped....the horse! :)|
|The train pulled back up so off we went to see the Christmas trees out in the fields!|
|"Pick your own flower patch.....fill with your own arrangement." Hmmmmmmmm......|
|There are tags on each tree to tell you how much it costs.|
|In addition to the fully grown trees, they have Christmas trees of all sizes growing to prepare for years from now.|
|This is what's left of the pumpkin patch from the Fall....|
