10/10/10 = 5 :) Celebrating the Pumpkin Way!

10/10/10 = 5 - atleast for Caleb!!!!  Sunday marked Caleb's official 5th birthday.  After celebrating the evening before with the family, Caleb felt really special celebrating (in his mind) again.  Our church planned an outing for the Pre-K - 5th graders to Evan's Orchard, and the kiddos had a great time!!!!

With weather in the upper 80's and the kids sporting shorts, it didn't quite "feel" like fall.  Despite our sweating, we enjoyed the orchard atmosphere.  Of course, this was another first for Jeremiah and Rachel.  We played on the gigantic slide, climbed on hay bales and tractor tires, ran the rat race, took a wagon ride, played on the swings, rode miniature tractors, walked through the small corn maze, and purchased some small pumpkins to bring home.  It was a lot of fun.


 Mommy had to slide with Rachel the 1st time, and then she was good to go.

  Jeremiah working hard in the Rat Race.

Caleb and Tori had a hard time staying upright while racing.
Rachel had a little help from "Uncle Mark" to make her tractor go!
We let the kids lead the way through the corn maze...

and everyone made it out!

Happy 5th Birthday Caleb - WE LOVE YOU!!!!
