What Time Is It?

It's Pumpkin Time!!!



Last night we threw everyone in the car and headed to the pumpkin patch for our annual Halloween tradition. Mostly, said tradition consists of letting both children loose upon the farm as they run around like chickens with their heads cut off. Once they finally get tired, we pick out pumpkins and then go out to dinner. I am happy to report that this year was no different than previous years--a complete success.

T was old enough to enjoy the pumpkin patch this year and even got into a little of the goat-feeding action. But she quickly got shy and decided that was not the thing for her. Instead, she decided to help her sister sit upon every pumpkin left in the pumpkin patch. Maybe they thought the pumpkins would hatch if they sat on them long enough? I am not sure I want to see what comes out...



They went on a hayride, ran through a straw maze and posed for pictures at every single photo cutout imaginable. We stopped at every animal pen and either fed them or observed. The animals that scared them the most? The pigs. They were cute but also squealed very loudly. I don't want to jump to any conclusions but I'm pretty sure they were possessed by an evil bacon spirit. Mmmm...bacon spirit...

Fun was had by all and now the family has two ginormous pumpkins to carve. The only sizes they had were large and huge...seriously. If those pumpkins ever hatch, we're all doomed.



The few photos were pilfered from http://greenwomancomesknocking.blogspot.com/. If you want to see more pics, go there.

And all your weight, it falls on me
