Pumpkin Patch

We didn’t go to the pumpkin patch last year. Spencer was pretty small and the hubs was still on the night shift and exhausted all of the time. I didn’t even dress him up, just got a shirt with a pumpkin on it and called it Halloween. This year, I feel a lot differently. There are memories to be made, people. Starting, of course, with a trip to the pumpkin patch. We went on a Tuesday afternoon, so the patch was almost empty and Spencer could run, and fall, to his little hearts content. We started with the animals.

Spencer thinks nearly all birds are ducks and these geese were no exception. They seemed pretty mellow, considering how evil geese can be, but we still had to keep Spencer from sticking his little fingers in to the pen. The llama, which you can see in the background of the picture on the top right, had seen better days. Spencer also enjoyed looking at the mules that were pulling the hayride.

Spencer poked and patted a whole lot of pumpkins. He called them balls, as he calls most round things balls, but at least he didn’t try and throw any of them.

And he loved running through the fields. He’s getting pretty adept, too. Most of the falls were due to tripping over vines. Spencer is also a budding eco-warrior, he picked up the trash in the fields and would bring it to us. Or it is possible that he just likes things that are shiny. Magpie, eco-warrior, same diff.

And Spencer and I took a somewhat decent picture, as long as you ignore the state of my hair. See those stupid chunks of hair sticking up out of the barrettes – I am STILL dealing with the BangsOfDoom from June. Stupid slow growing hair, I need to hurry up and get pregnant again just to grow out my bangs. Seriously though, there was the cutest little squishy baby dressed up in a pumpkin outfit at the patch and it reignited the baby fever.

    Aha! That thing about the trash is ADORABLE. He needs a tiny eco-warrior shirt.

    If you hadn’t mentioned the hair thing I wouldn’t even have noticed. You both look super happy and awesome to me.
