Our Pumpkin Patch Outing...

A bit late posting these, but it was fun when it happened, and it's still fall-y... So why not?

The other week we got to go play at the Thies Nursery Pumpkin Land. They have a whole setup of fun stuff for kids around Halloween-- pumpkins, corn maze, hay bale tunnels, petting zoo, wagon rides, etc. etc. BIG FUN. :)

The first thing Noah tackled was the massive hay pyramid. It was like a siren song, calling him.

But the burlap sack slide quickly lured him away, and became his FAVORITE part of this playland:

the giant tire swing was charming to him for a moment, but mostly, he'd go back to the slide.

A few cute kiddos from our ward were there, too-- a perfect playgroup activity. This is Callum, Noah's honorary "little bro"-- he's the son of Noah's once-a-week babysitter, and they are QUITE fond of each other.

And with a LITTLE cajoling, I managed to sit Noah down for long enough to get the obligatory "pumpkin patch" photos. He was a pretty good sport!

And I could end there-- with a cute few pics of Noah with the pumpkins... But my favorite part of the day was so random, I had to recount it here. While we were all on the hayride, Callum dropped his sippy cup and it got MASHED by the tractor wheel. The driver felt so bad that he darted over to the broccoli patch we were next to (Thies IS a working farm, after all), and cut a stalk of fresh broccoli as a consolation prize. Callum could not have cared less about the broccoli but Noah was SUPER jealous of it... and the first chance he got after the hayride, he ambushed Callum and claimed it for his own:

And proceeded to chow down on that thing like it was a lollipop for the rest of our time there.

That's my boy-- happy as a king with his broccoli at the pumpkin patch. 

Such a weirdo.

Happy November to all! Time for me to go to bed!

    I can't believe Noah loves broccoli almost as much as I do! Such an oddball, but he fits right in with the family :) LOVE YOU!
