Ironically I don’t love Halloween but I do love pumpkin patches and all the fall activities that accompany the season. We loaded the kiddos up bright and early on a Saturday and headed to our local pumpkin patch and we could not have asked for a better day. It was hot. We were in long clothes but we were a sweatin’. As expected fun was had by all. Thomas is obsessed with animals so as soon as he laid eyes on the petting Zoo he was gone. Zoe had a great time too, she loved being outside and she is a people watcher just like her mama so she was basically in heaven. Zoe’s on the move, she’s a crawling machine and loves to stand, so she was pretty happy to “roam amongst the pumpkins.
It was so fun to see Thomas and Zoe playing and interacting together. They played on a few things together and Zoe is over the moon when Thomas pays her any sort of attention. Thomas tried his hand at the oversized trampoline bubbles. Great idea and a ton of fun, though I think he was a bit intimidated / concerned about sliding to the bottom.
I was able to convince T & Z to sit together for all of 4 minutes to snap a few fall photos of them… not bad for rapid firing. And I even managed to get in one or two….
And of course Thomas picked out the largest pumpkin he could find, and a pricey pumpkin it was. Next year I think we’ll implement the “you can get what you can carry” rule.
Happy fall friends.
