Pumpkin Patch

The Boy's have been so excited to go to the pumpkin patch this year. I am sure that the Little Boy's don't remember it from last year, but Caleb sure did. And they all feed off each others excitement about the big day. The farm that we went to last year wasn't open this year, so we tried another place... Big Red Farms was lots of fun, and the pumpkins were a huge hit. I told the boys that they all got to pick their very own pumpkin, which they were really excited about. I was actually surprised at how quickly they all gravitated towards their specific pumpkin. For each of them, it was love at first sight. They knew right away that it was "The One". And they still know which is theirs out on the lanai, waiting to be carved. Their ages are so much fun. Everything is magical and exciting, and they make it so for their Mommy and Daddy, too.

Pumpkins!! I used to love doing pumpkins with my dad when I was little girl. I wish the boys liked pumpkins - but I suppose we'll manage without this specific family tradition...

My wife is very impressed with all the pumpkins out this time of year (they don't have pumpkins in Brazil). Kylie likes them too. That looks like a very fun trip.
