New Traditions

Today was our first time going to Baugher's Orchard to pick pumpkins. Before kids, we just never thought of doing that. We always loved going to festivals and doing outdoor activities but, I guess going to Baugher's never crossed our minds. But now, now that we're parents, we were really looking forward to taking Gabrielle and Holly on a hayride and letting them pick their own pumpkins. Payton, Matt's Nephew and MiMi and Pop (Matt's parents), tagged along, too. But, as we were waiting in line to board the hayride, Payton started feeling sick. Poor little guy. So, MiMi and Pop decided to stay back with Payton while we took the girls on their first hayride/pumpkin excursion. Payton, MiMi and Pop never did get their chance to take a hayride. Here are a few pictures from our day at Baugher's Orchard.

Despite loosing some of our gang, next year we'll try getting the same people together for a day at Baugher's Orchard therefore, continuing a new tradition.

Hey Tracy - We were at the orchard on the same day. Mom, Dad, Mackenzie, Ainsley, Michael and I took the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. We had a good time, but boy was it warm! Did the girls climb on the haystack?

See you soon! Colleen
