Pumpkin Patch

A couple of weeks ago, on a rare October day when no one was sick, we took the kids to a local pumpkin patch. It was the first day the kids had been out of the house in a pretty long time, which turned out to be both good and bad. It was good because they were so excited to be out of the house that they were in a great mood the whole time we were there. But it was bad because all they really wanted to do was run around in the big empty patch of straw-covered grass and not explore the pumpkins at all. We kept having to chase them down and bring them back to where the pumpkins were! Maybe next year they'll take after their cousin Kinley and be fascinated by the pumpkins!

If someone would move all these big balls out of the way, I could run around a lot better!

But...I want to go back to that big open space! It's right there!

Hey, these balls have knobs on them, but they don't do anything!

If we move all the funny balls, can we climb on these big blocks?

Finally a shot of all four!
We bought our Halloween pumpkin there, and as a special bonus, received 4 little pumpkins for free! The nice man who gave them to us said they always give little kids a free pumpkin on their first visit to the pumpkin patch, but he never thought he'd give away four at once!
