I'm all about celebrating birthdays, not just on the day of your birth, but for the whole week. I want to make my kids feel special and loved on their birthdays. My mom always made holidays and birthdays a big deal and I want to do the same for my kids.
On Judah's birthday he woke up to six helium balloons, streamers, and a big "Happy Birthday" sign decorating the house. He, also, got his gifts from us- a new bike and two chapter books.
After we got ready and had breakfast we headed out to the first surprise. The boys had no idea where we were going.
An hour later we pulled up to Bishops Pumpkin Farm. I just realized that we've visited a different pumpkin patch each year since Judah was born. Fall is a fun time to have a birthday!
We had so much fun!
Judah and Samuel loved petting the animals...Silas not so much. Judah even held a miniature goat!
We rode a train.
Rode giant rocking horses.
My dad met us after lunch.
And we took a tractor ride.
Out to pick pumpkins.
And pose for pictures. Of course.
My dad got Silas a giant pumpkin.
The boys played a little longer, got super tired, and then we went home to rest before surprise number two.
