Pumpkin Pickin'

Peter Piper picked a patch of pretty pumpkins.

So where's the patch of pretty pumpkins that Peter Piper picked? At Mother Nature's Farm!

Me and the boys went to the pumpkin patch at the farm today and had a splendid time.

Here are the boys on the hay ride. Simon was so excited that a big green tractor was pulling the wagon. He loved it! Ryan had no idea what was going on but got excited because Simon was excited. :)

We got to check out the animals: Chickens and roosters and turkeys and a few pigs too.
This was the best part. I had to practically drag Simon out of the hay maze. I was a"mazed" to see how fast Simon got through the maze. He never got stuck. He quickly found his way to the end even when the other older kids were yelling "Mom, I don't know where to go."
That's my boy!
Here's Ryan chillin' in the play house.

Just for fun!

Here are the pumpkins! Simon had a blast decorating his. We found the letters for his name, and he added a few more letters and some other silly foam stickers too. Ryan didn't get the whole putting-stickers-on-pumpkins thing. I could barely get him to hold his pumpkin for a picture. He was sooo tired the whole time we were there. We left right at naptime. Not so smart on my part but he still had a good time And we can still use these pumpkins for scrumptions pumpkin pie later. mmmmm!
I am also happy to announce that Simon has finally overcome his fear of bounce houses! yay!
His Aunt Marie works at Extreme Play and last time we went there he would not get on the bouncers. He was scared to tears! But as of today he is cured and was even asking me if we could go see "Auntie Ree" at Extreme Play.
Happy Halloween Everyone!

Fun! We did that last year down in Willcox and had a blast. I was sad we didn't get to go this year.

I love your Halloween costumes! They look so great, better than store bought. I'm SO impressed at your sewing skills.
