Pumpkin Patch 09

This year we were invited by an old friend of mine (from elementary school!) to go to Cox Farm with the family.

Erin and I have known each other since I was in 7th grade at Garmisch Elem. in Germany. We hung out quite a bit until I became Bff's with Autti. We actually met back up a couple of years ago...I was standing in Chuck E Cheese's for KK's bday, and was in line to get prizes for the ticketss when i hear my name in a question-ly(?) voice.

I looked behind me and there was ERIN....I couldnt believe it. I recognized her right off the bat, and we really COULDNT believe it! In Woodbridge, Virginia of ALL places! :) The last time we had seen each other was in Mr Bacherts class. (the good ol' days) :)

Anyway....here are tons of pictures from our trip...the sad thing is..I had to CHOOSE out of so many and there were about 15 more I WANTED to post as well! :) BUt thought this was plenty!

Enjoy-

My funny little man...


Love these kiddo's...I am so blessed!

All in all it was a fun trip. One we probably won't make again any time soon due to how expensive it was...but still it created some wonderful memories with not only family, but wonderful friends as well.
We are truly blessed! :)
Have a safe Halloween Everyone!
