Last weekend we got another night off as Eric's parents graciously agreed to keep Cate overnight again so that we could enjoy a baby "sprinkle" (we don't need a shower since we've pretty much got everything we need-- but every baby does deserve to be celebrated) thrown by our small group. To entertain her for the evening, they went to a local farm and pumpkin patch. From all the pictures they emailed to us afterward, it's clear that Cate had a really good time with her Grandma and Poppy in the fresh country air.
We also learned that Cate has surpassed the 3 foot mark. As Eric joked, she has less than 2.5 feet to go before she catches up with me.
There were some animals at the farm that Cate also enjoyed getting to see, like this rabbit: And even though she looks apprehensive in this picture, Cate really did like the barrel train ride. So while Cate got to have all this fun, I took a different pumpkin...
...over to our friends' home to be spoiled rotten. We really do have some amazingly generous friends. And Cate has some amazingly patient grandparents for keeping her two Saturday nights in a row. Thanks again!
