Pumpkin patch

Well, it's getting close to halloween and I took a trip to the pumpkin patch with the kids and Erin this weekend. It was not nearly as bad as one could imagine getting pumpkins with a 2 and almost 4 year old would be. There was a neat hay maze that Jonas had fun finding his way through and there was a stack of hay that he got to climb up and jump off of. There was also a corn maze, but it cost money to go through so we skipped it. The place was set up pretty nice with a bunch of wheelbarrows and wagons to let people move their pumpkins a lot more easily. The kids each picked a pumpkin from the already picked bunch (which saved me a trip into the field) and we were out of there. We were there for about a half an hour and spent more than an hour cleaning them out and carving jack-o-lanterns. I had laid out what to cut to put the kids name into one of the pumpkins, but I didn't make it big enough and the letters collapses while cutting them out. I guess next year I'll have to make each letter much bigger.

I'm glad we all had fun. Erin got some good pictures of the kids, I'll try to get them up here soon.
