We took a ride to the pumpkin patch with Mikey this morning (please excuse the text on some of these pictures - that's for the school project). Elizabeth was careful to buckle Mikey in:
We got to the pumpkin patch and went right for the requisite "kids in front of fallscape" photos:
We took Mikey on the hayride to the pumpkin patch.
There have traditionally been scary things along the side of the trail on this particular hayride: skeletons, tombstones, etc.; in addition to the occasional random character (like Betty Boop), which makes the ride a little more fun -- but this year, we noticed that the ghouls, goblins, and cartoon bimbos have taken sponsors (i.e., it's no longer just a scarecrow, but the RealtySouth scarecrow). It's not quite as disillusioning as when the Cotton Bowl became the AT&T Cotton Bowl, but it's close.
The kids and Mikey hunted for the perfect pumpkin. Here's Mikey with his:
After that we had fun in the hay maze, and we took turns jumping off a huge pile of hay. It was a blast.
I took a lot of pictures of the kids today, but it's after 11 p.m. and here I am blogging about a stuffed monkey, so I'm going to call it a night and hopefully get to these other pictures sometime before Thanksgiving!
