so, we did that good family thing that you’re supposed to do in the fall in order to get your halloween pumpkins instead of buying them at the grocery store.
we went to the pumpkin patch! it was actually a lot of fun, aside from some rain, mud, wind, and nearly freezing to death.
we did the kids’ maze. dave and shane are planning to go back and do the big one at night some time next weekend. this one had 5 stations with 5 different colored crayons that you used to color one of your fingertips. when you had found them all, had a very colorful hand, and had made it out of the maze, you had to find your color combination (the order of the colors on your fingers) and find the number that matched them. then the that number corresponded with a particular action that you had to perform. layla had to roar like a lion, dave had to blow raspberries, and I had to pull a rope like a mime. micah and shane didn’t want to do it.
which we found. micah really wanted a green one. layla and shane both wanted HUGE pumpkins, I loved my little whitish/salmon colored one, and then there was a big pear shaped one that I loved too, so dave stuck that in the wheelbarrow as well.
our fireplace and hot chocolate was calling, so we called it a day and headed home with our pumpkins.
