It was so much fun! I always enjoy the country feel of the pumpkin patch, and I love that all of the activities are outside so that the kids can run and play off as much energy as they please!
We started the day playing in the hay- which was fabulous for my and P's allergies! Uhg- those allergies!
Then, we went on the tractor ride to the pumpkin patch. I had given Perry a pep talk, instructing him to pick out the very best, biggest, prettiest, orangiest pumpkin. And- about point two seconds into his pumpkin finding adventure, he fell in love with this here
It was terribly cute, just not exactly what I had in mind. But Perry loved it! He carried it around with him all day, playing with it, rolling it, and even throwing it. In fact, he loved it so much, he even had to show our social worker, Kelly, the next day during our Home Study visit! (I was extremely nervous about carving it at the pumpkin carving party the next day. I was so worried he would be distraught after cutting it. After some extensive explaining on my and Justin's part, P was ready to turn his cantaloupe into a Jack-O-Lantern...and I must say, it turned out just perfect!!)
We then hit up the pony ride, snack bar (LOVE some terrible-for-you cheese fries!), and the bouncy houses- which were a HUGE hit. Perry and Sophia especially enjoyed the tallest bouncy slide known to man.
Uhg- I was such a NERVOUS WRECK every time they climbed to the top, but they both giggled and squealed up and down that slide for a little over an hour! It was an absolutely perfect day to be sick... cough, cough!
