October 27th - The Great Pumpkin Hunt

Last night for Family Home Evening, we decided to go to a local Pumpkin Patch. This was our first foray into the Pumpkin Patch world, because until now I just haven't liked to take my kids anywhere due to meltdowns and tantrums. I have to say - this adventure was successful on many levels.

First: There were tractors. Any event with tractors is a good thing.

Second: There were pumpkins. The kids had been asking to go get pumpkins for weeks.

Third: There was a tractor pulled hay ride. Who doesn't love a good hay ride?

Brrrrh. This activity looks frosty! And oh so fun. Who's that very young, skinny amabuela with you?

As Josh gets older, I'm starting to see a little bit of Dave in him.

Your right, any event with tractors can't be wrong.

(in a singing voice) Memories, like the corners of my mind...

Isn't it fun when they start moving past the tantrum throwing stage?
