The Pumpkin Patch!!!











Every year we all look forward to getting together with all the cousins and going to play for a few hours at  Pumpkin Land. This year, we actually went all through the corn maze and stopped and read and giggled at all the silly little jokes they have posted along the way. The kids all searched and searched for the "secret word" because if they found it, they all get to have a special treat. And what is the secret word you ask? PUMPKIN!!! How original huh? Anyway, it was kind of cold the day before we went, so I think people were not wanting out be out in the weather so we practically had the whole place to ourselves! The kids had a blast playing on all the blow up slides and in the bouncer thing. They probably could have stayed there all night. But, we dragged them away, and they played on the big playground and on the cute pumpkin shaped slide. While we were out side, we even got to see 2 trains go by! A real treat for MY boys especially. Then off we went through the "spook alley", full of light up Christmas decorations just made to look kind of Halloween-ish. Every now and then, Josh would hide around a corner and jump out and try to scare someone. Sometimes it would work, but most of the time, they just gave him a "whatever" look and kept on going. Good try though Joshy! On our way out, we all got our individual pumpkins, (and tulips for me) and piled back in the car and headed to Grandmas house for some yummy soup and sandwiches followed by some super awesome apples dipped in home made carmel sauce. Thanks Melanie!!! The cousins had such a fun time playing together and it is always fun to get together as adults and talk and laugh and play some games. We love this time of year when the family can plan fun things to do and just enjoy being together. We love you family!!!

I love the pumpkin patch! Your boys are so darling! I can't believe you are wearing hats and coats. Is it already Fall? Crazy!

Can you get any better than Pumpkinland? I think we have 20+ years of pumpkin photos. Can we pay you to jump out at our kids this year Josh? The years of 'whatever' looks are just beginning!

PS. Be thinking about your costume for our Halloween river trip... I think your Tat shirt would be great!
