Blessington....errr...Dewberry Farms

All fall, I have been wanting to take the girls to Blessington farms.  They have a pumpkin patch, animals and various other activities for kids, and I knew Ad would just eat it up.  Our weekends kept filling up so we finally decided to go a few Sundays ago.  Dan and Monica decided to join us and bring Jackson so we all met early that morning and started heading out to be there right when it opened at 10am.  On the way there, we realized I had gotten slightly crossed up with the information and Blessington farms is actually CLOSED on Sundays.  Uh oh.  Ad had been chanting, "I'm going to the pumpkin patch!" ever since we left our house so we quickly went on to plan B.  Dewberry farms was open....but not until noon.  We found some random restaurant west of Katy and actually enjoyed a pretty yummy breakfast before heading over to Dewberry farms.  Fortunately, we got there well before it opened since we had time to kill bc that place got crowded with a capital C.  The pumpkin patch itself was pretty disappointing, but the other activities were great.  The kids had a great time and were none the wiser that it wasn't the original day we had planned.  I will definitely take a little extra time to check the dates and times next year.  :)

Attempting to get some sweet sister pictures in the pumpkins

As you can see, there were just a few scattered about.  I was envisioning piles and piles of beautiful pumpkins for many photo ops.  These were fairly scarce and many were rotting.  Addie walked around saying...."broken pumpkin" over and over.  haha

She loved the pony rides

My favorite picture of Lila to date.  It just doesn't get any cuter than that.
