Big Red Barn

I love Rowley's Big Red Barn in Santaquin.  Christy and I took the kids there yesterday and it was quite an adventure.  It was unexpectedly (to us) FREEZING.  The twins had big jackets, Lucy and Ruby had hooded sweatshirts, but I just had a thin sweater!  It didn't matter though, it was super fun.  The apple cider donuts were phenom of course--Ruby had 3 for breakfast today.  (Mom of the year, I know.)

 The big slide was reallllly fun but Ruby was terrified of it.  I'm so mean, I made her do it with me twice even though she was scared out of her mind.  But she didn't want to wait at the bottom for me but I really wanted to do it, so what was I supposed to do?  I know--awesome parenting.  Joyce, Lydia, and Lucy loved it though.

Our absolute favorite part was the extremely bouncy hayride to the pumpkin patch.  I never post videos but I just love this one--the kids are sooo happy.

We had fun looking at pumpkins.  We were going to buy one, but the prospect of hauling pumpkins while also hauling 3 exhausted toddlers while covered in hay just seemed too difficult.  Plus we already got pumpkins at Walmart.

Ruby REFUSED to take cute pictures.  This is the only freaky picture we got.

Also, and if you know a different cody and whitney than just ignore me, but I don't think that's our blog tha'ts on your blog update thing-we recently changed back to blogger and it's: :)

So fun to see a record of your day! It looked so fun--the kids had a riot, although all your cheeks are soo pink! Kinda chilly! Wish you had a photo of the slide! (mom)
