Pumpkin Patch 2017

I’m super late with this, and you’ve probably already seen it on Instagram, but I’ve documented all of our other visits to the Pumpkin Patch at St. Mark’s. How else did I manage to look up the past photos to recreate them 😀 ??

The big boys were, of course, less than thrilled about having to peel themselves away from their electronics and get showered and dressed for the occasion, but they eventually did. I warned them at the beginning of October that they will be 25 and they WILL take their pumpkin patch photo with their siblings 😆 .

So they humored me and had some fun recreating the very first set of photos from 2011 that we took of them our first official year as a family .

2011 vs. 2017
And a new one with Julien

“Hurry, Mom! Take the picture!”

And of course, these boys always find ways to crack everyone up. Here they are “manspreading”.

And then we get home and for some unknown reason, Jaylen climbed onto the roof.

It was a great day!

It’s always hilarious hearing snippets of Jorge and Briana’s conversations. On Saturday night in particular, they were having a conversation about making food–or about Keto, not sure–but I overheard Jorge telling her:

“This is what happens: I take a picture [of food], and send it to Yajaira and when I get home…it’s THERE. I sent her a picture of stuffed avocados and just watch. when I get home, it’ll be there.

“And here’s another one: I didn’t want to jinx it, but here goes. I have this hamper–I bought it at Walmart. I put all my clothes in it and *boom* all of a sudden, my clothes are all folded and neatly stacked. I don’t know how it happens.”

😆 😆 😆

He obviously got that from that one video about the guy telling his girlfriend some magical fairy does his laundry and picks up after him.

So the magical fairy took 2 nights, but she delivered the stuffed avocados…
