Pairs at the Patch

Today we took our annual trip to the "Pairs at the Patch" event for the Tacoma Parents of Multiples group that we belong to. We went to the Peninsula Gardens again in Gig Harbor, due to the fact that it is in a greenhouse and is relatively warmer for the folks with little babies and such. Many of the children came dressed up in costumes, which was fun to see. They had this pirate ship there (like last year) for the kids to play in as well.

And also as before, they had a little hay maze to go through and here you see Daddy chasing Josiah in the maze. Daddy kept threatening to "beat him" to the end of the maze and Josiah CLEARLY did not want to be beaten!

The twins enjoyed the maze too, but right before this shot was taken Caleb stopped to turn around and Daniel kept walking and they had a head bonk. You can see that Daniel is unphased by the bonking, but that Caleb is expressing his usual drama over the incident.

I was able to capture this sweet little Caleb boy with fistfuls of hay as he was preparing to enter the maze again. He also had fun trying to sweep the hay into piles on the floor of the little play area. He ended up with a little hay in his back pocket, which made him look like a little farmer.

Daniel is looking up at the giant purple spider that was positioned above the hay bales. Both he and Caleb pointed this out to us right away when we arrived.

They had a little coloring station too, and both the twins stayed to color for a surprisingly long amount of time. Caleb started to eat the crayons though and that was the end of that. They also had fun going around to the hay bales and knocking the pumpkins off onto the floor. Apparently, the pumpkins were supposed to be on the floor according to the twins. We picked up many a pumpkin throughout the event for sure.

Josiah went on a hayride again this year as well and enjoyed taking a tour of the pumpkin patch with some of the other children from the group. I had fun visiting with a lot of the other twin mommies as well and took many more pictures as I am the newsletter editor for the group and need lots of pictures for that purpose. We had a good turn out and it was an enjoyable event for sure!
