Now that Brooklynn is in school she has friends other than Mom, Dad, and Irelyn! She was invited to Jacob's birthday party which was held at the Corn Maze and Petting Farm. The girls and I made it through the very large maze but I was getting a little nervous as it started raining on us. We all had a lot of fun, the girls with the activities and myself watching my big girl making new friends
Jacob, the birthday boy, and Brooklynn (notice Irelyn snuck into the background :)
Our church sets up a great Pumpkin Patch as a fundraiser so we made our annual trip to pick out pumpkins. Brooklynn located the largest pumpkin in the patch and Dad accepted the challenge. Notice it took the strength of all 3 of them to get it up the HUGE hill!
Our church also puts on an amazing carnival for the kids. Brooklynn left for the carnival as a beautiful Cinderella and after a little face paint at the carnival, returned home as Gothic Cinderella! I tried to talk her into getting a pretty butterfly painted on her cheek but nope, she wanted to be a scary skeleton. We are raising a young lady that knows what she wants and is not easily pursuaded.
Our little social butterfly was also invited to a very fun Halloween party. Brooklynn and Mom enjoyed the haunted house, some play time on a great train set, and a walk through the spooky graveyard!
