Last Effort

So, since we didn't do the zip line on the last trip, we made one last visit to the pumpkin patch in a last effort to go on that dang thing. We picked Peyton up from school and headed straight there in an attempt to beat the crowds. We got there around 3:30, and were lucky it was not crowded. BUT, they didn't open the zip line until 4:30/5. Ay yi yi. So we used the few tickets we bought, checked out the animals, walked around a little more (again) and I got in line to make sure we were the first ones to go once it did open. I am sure the workers hated me because I kept checking in and asking when it would open, or saw if they could call the guy in charge so he might come closer to 4:30 than 5. But, when he did get there around 4:40 we were there, waiting and ready. And she was so cute, it was all worth it. She stepped right off the edge and did it without hesitation. Even though later she admitted she was sure she was going to plunge to her death, which made it all the more impressive she did it so readily.

So I of course took a  million pictures while we waited and roamed.
 We also did the swings while we waited for the zip line to open, and it was a hit. I am so glad they were lax on their height requirement with this because technically Jovie was too short, but she really, really wanted to go on it. And she loved it. They both did.
 Since Jovie and I had already done the petting zoo, Wes and Peyton did this while the rest of us walked around some more.
 And of course Wes took a goat selfie... he's going to make this a thing.
 Hey and would you look at that, the actual pumpkin patch.
 And yet another performance by this girl.
 Ok, here we go!!!
 After the pumpkin patch we headed over to Chick-Fil-A for their Harvest Night. It was pretty fun, but I am super bummed my kids didn't wear their costumes, because they would've won for sure.
