It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown...or the few that are left anyway...
We took Jennifer, Luke and Ben and joined the throngs of families who visited a pumpkin patch this past week. Even grandparents totally buy into the hype of seeing cute children frolic through fields of hay and produce with inflatable bouncy pumpkins and strategically placed merchandise for sale. And we were strong - we resisted the urge to spend $24 for a pumpkin that is $3.98 at our local Wal-Mart and opted instead for the 'baby pumpkins' for $1 each - which were immensely cuter than the aforementioned behemoths of extraordinaire expense.
I got a kick out of this little exchange between Luke and Ben. Is it just me, or does it remind you of a Magic 8 Ball? Is Ben messing with Luke's mind?
Luke's seems to be highly dubious of this however. Smart boy.
And of course, when at a pumpkin patch, Miss Manners says you should ALWAYS take a hayride!
We had a blast. And I'm glad that Mike was finally able to join us.
