Pumpkin Patch Fun

As my energy law paper deadline more rapidly approaches, I find that we are now down to 1 1/2 family days. This sucks for us all. Although, this weekend, we were fortunate that the rainy day was my half-study day and the sunny day was PUMPKIN PATCH DAY! I don't have the pictures yet, but keep an out of on Wife's blog. I'm sure she'll have some up soon. We had a good time scrambling up the hay pyramid, grinding corn to feed chickens, feeding goats, winding through a hay maze, and taking a bumpy ride out to the pumpkin patch itself. Baby Girl LOVED the bumpy ride and it made her laugh with delight. The pumpkins themselves were "too dirty" and I had to carry even the smallest one, but she was fine with throwing clumps of dirt for fun. What? They were not too dirty? Boy Wonder had a great time disassembling/inspecting a giant sunflower, and barely noticed the pumpkins at all. All right - as long as a good time was had by all.

It may not have been Disneyworld, and we didn't get to end our day in a plush Orlando vacation home, but it was a nice escape made even nicer by a mostly-sunny fall day. Might as well save Orlando for a winter vacation anyway :)

Glad y'all had a good time, it sure looked like it on her blog!
How stupid am I that I was salivating over the corn thinking it was roasted and it was RAW. Durh.
