The Pumpkin Patch, Part 3

This is the last Pumpkin Patch post this year, I promise! By the time Molly arrived, Stella was trying out Pawpaw's sunglasses...
She also took another trip to the petting zoo to see Baby Bird again...
She placed a few bets on the rubber duckie races...just kidding...she's Baptist and everybody knows we don't gamble...
Man, if we lived in the pioneer days she would be a great helper...
Go, ducks, go!
Last year Stella got peeved when a little boy invaded her pumpkin carriage.  This year she shared with two Prince Charmings...
How much did Stella grow in the past year?
This much!

Stella had fun playing some games...
Daddy gave her a little help with the tractor...
Red just wasn't her color...
Here they are wondering, "What's for dinner?"
She got to pick some cotton, which thankfully did not include any of the pointless exercises I was subjected to in high school P.E...
She took a hike on the nature trail.  I think Daddy enjoyed this more than Stella did...
She pretended to be Susan/Ginormika on the haybales.  In Monsters vs. Aliens, Susan starts off as a normal girl...
But grows into a GIANT!
One trip to the zip lines was just not enough...
Mommy even tried it out after most of the kids were gone, but I won't post those pictures...
Back at the blob, Stella and her friend Mattie Ann discovered that it's super fun to run back and forth between daddies...

Mattie Ann thought we should revisit the zip lines...
Stella agreed...
Family photo attempt, made more difficult by the fact that we were facing straight into the setting sun...
And did I mention sitting in the dirt? 
Squint and say, "Cheese!"
Stella and Molly, BFF's...
Finally, a keeper...
So long until next year, Pumpkin Patch!
