Once there was a pig... and it was huge! And it was best friends with a kangaroo next door. True story! Last week we went to a super fun Pumpkin patch here in Utah. My friends told me that I was about to see the biggest pig ever, I didn't believe them until I saw it. That pig was crazy huge!!! Emma got such a kick out seeing the big Bertha of a pig. Paisley (The little girl I nanny for now) just kept laughing and pointing at it.
Although the pig was cool, my favorite by far was the Kangaroo! I am now trying to convince Jake that we need one when we finally have his hobby farm that he desires. I think it is a great compromise. He gets cows and chickens and I get a kangaroo and goats haha.
But seriously, have you ever petted a kangaroo? They are so soft and cuddly. I love it. This guy in particular LOVED to be petted. That little animal made my day!
Emma, I think, could have stayed at the pumpkin patch all day long! Between the huge slide they had and the corn pit, this girl was in heaven. Sadly though, Lizzy loved it until she got too cold (we happened to have picked the coldest day to go) So when the 11 month old
screams says it is time to go, its time to go haha. Here are a few pictures of our adventures.
P.S The corn pit was So. Much. Fun!!!
Today was one of those "I am such a awesome mom" moments. Haha not. I had several things that I had to get done this morning that Emma and Lizzy were left to entertain themselves. Emma was quite excited because that meant she could watch Mickey Mouse longer with out me noticing. After awhile of working on my projects, I started to feel really guilty about not playing with my sweet little girls. I felt kinda lame not spending as much time with them as I normally do. I kept finding myself telling Emma "just a minute" or "let me just finish one more thing." Finally I decided enough was enough and it was time to play. Boy am I glad that I took that break. I had so much fun playing with my girls outside! The weather could not be beat. And Little Lizzy was full of smiles and babbles. She was talking about everything an anything. I just love watching her look around and discover everything. She is always so fascinated by the littlest things. I just love it! One of Emma and my favorite things to do outside is lay a blanket down and look for birds in the sky. Lizzy's favorite thing to do is to "fly" above us lol! As I played outside with Emma, I was amazed with how much imagination she has. She set up her Little People doll house on our little picnic blanket and talked to me about her little dolls. I learned who they were, their names, what foods they like to eat, what makes them happy or sad (we had to kiss one of them better) and how they cook dinner in their house . It was just too cute to watch. I will forever treasure each moment that I spend with my girls. I know that they will not be this age for long. So I will gladly set aside my projects and take time with them. After all my daughters make each day more beautiful then the last.
