The Pumpkin Patch

This past Sunday we took Jack to the pumpkin patch. We had a great time. The weather was beautiful and felt like a nice fall day. Jack absolutely loved it. His favorite thing was the hayride though. He didn't want to get off.
After everyone else had gotten off, Brandon and Jack stayed on to discuss their strategy on finding the perfect carving pumpkin. Look how intently Jack is listening to his Daddy.
There were 2 different patches, one to the left and one to the right. Jack immediately took off running to the patch on the right and towards the pumpkin in the picture. The whole time he was yelling "ball". He was a little confused but I was pretty impressed that he recognized the pumpkin as the same shape as a ball.

He found the perfect pumpkin and then was done with the patch. I think that Aunt Sena and I had more fun in the patch picking out the best pumpkin for decoration.
Jack and Daddy have loaded up and are ready to head back to activities.

Aunt Sena, Jack and I were cuddled up. It was pretty chilly on the hayride.

On the way back Jack tried to taste the stem of the pumpkin. I wish I could have gotten a picture of the awful face he made right after he took a bite. He did not like the taste.They had a huge 18 wheeler cage full of cotton that the kids could play in. When we got there big kids were playing in it so I was upset Jack wouldn't get to. When we were leaving I was so excited to see that it was empty. We took Jack's shoes off and put him in. He loved it. The first thing he did was fall face first and loved it. It was like he knew how soft it would be. I got to go in and get him out and it was pretty cool.

I hope that everyone is having a great October and enjoying it as much as we are. We can't wait for Halloween next weekend. Jack will be a shaggy dog. I can't wait to post those pictures and to see all of the other posts of the little ones in their costumes.

The picture of Jack face down in the cotton is PRICELESS. I hope you blow it up and put it in your house somewhere--I just love it! He's turning into such a big boy...I can't wait to see him again soon...hopefully, during the Thanksgiving and miss ya'll! MO
