Pumpkin Patch 2011

 

I’m going to have to make this quick because Joseph is going to be up from his nap any minute.

I know this because I just decided that, after this post, I will lay down and take a nap myself!

And so, according to the law of children, the instant I start to drift off into that happy place, Joseph will be there staring at me and whispering questions about aliens and knights and Jesus.

So.

Yesterday we ventured out to the pumpkin patch!

It was a pumpkin patch Jersey – style, though, which means that almost every woman there was wearing high heeled leather boots, and that the “farm” was right next to a Mercedes-Benz dealership.

Also, it wasn’t really a patch so much as a dirt area with pumpkins in a pile.

But, the boys loved it!

Brian isn’t really much of a pumpkin-patch fan, but he was there too!

Isaac’s favorite part was:

1)  Yelling “PUNKAN!!!!”

2)  Lifting “punkan”s (homeboy is STRONG)

3)  Throwing “punkan”s

(Did you see the pumpkin in mid-air?)

Joseph just kept telling me what a “great adventure” it was!

Which is also what he says after a trip to the mall, but whatever.

In conclusion, it turns out that we are not too picky about pumpkin patches.  If there is a tractor and a doughnut, our family will show up.

PS: Just for fun (and tears- WAAH! My babies!) here we are at a patch in Connecticut last year!

PPS: Please tell me that you noticed that we were all wearing orange and black in these photos?  That’s how I roll, folks.

PPPS:  This is why I encourage Brian come:

Just want to mention that I'm a Jersey girl and I wear flat sensible shoes. I'm in the minority here though.

That last picture of Brian made me laugh! Sounds like you guys had fun, the boys look so grown up!

Heidi said...

The boys are looking older! But still just as cute. :)

Why didn't that pumpkin just SPLAT when Isaac threw it?? Looks like more of the old Robertson "Forced Family Fun" for Brian...or as we referred to it, FFF night.

At least you get to have the NJ pumpkin picking experience. When are you buying your boots?
