On days like this, I love being a parent. Okay well I love being a parent every day (no, not really) but today I really, really enjoyed it. I love to watch my children’s happiness flourish and blossom right in front of my eyes. Their energy and pure joy is intoxicating. It’s contagious. It makes my heart happy.
We visited our local pumpkin patch today and while this is a yearly tradition it still surprises me how fresh and magical the experience is once we enter those gates. Not because we spend a ton of money or shower them with treats. It’s because we’re together. Having fun. Creating memories.
They had a live band and a stage and Diva was in her element. She danced and skipped and danced on that stage for over an hour. Like full on dancing. Non stop. For an hour. A local high school dance team held a freeze dance contest and Diva and Munchkin drank it up. It was adorable and precious and sweet and hilarious all at once.
And of course, there were ponies involved. More happiness. More energy. More love.
