In the Pumpkin Patch

The skies were cloudy, but the smiles were bright while we visited the pumpkin patch.

We found some really funky looking pumpkins, and some interesting shapes, too. After reading about Spookley, the square pumpkin, it was neat to see such oddly shaped pumpkins, some of them with warts and weird patterns.

I wish we had taken some pumpkins home with us that day, but it started raining and we didn't. Now many of the stores are sold out and Greg has to go out pumpkin hunting. Ah, well.

The boys thought these vines were pretty awesome, and they liked feeling their prickliness. Greg had his coffee in one hand for our entire visit. He tends to drink his coffee over a time period of no less than an hour. I should try doing the same thing--I drink a 16 ounce cup in less than 15 minutes and then have another cup every morning.

Hugs on the hayride!

Henry liked picking up the little pumpkins and lining them up.

It's funny how I can never get my kids to both look happy at the same time. Ah well, Henry looks pretty cheerful in this one.

I think they look constipated in this one.

Nick preferred the bigger pumpkins, but was somewhat discouraged by the fact that he couldn't lift them.

Henry preferred sitting on the bigger ones to trying to lift them.

Have a great week!
