The Great Pumpkin Patch
After driving by the pumpkin patch on the way to the drugstore and hearing the boys get all excited about the rides, Don and I were looking forward to bring the boys to the patch.
The first thing that caught their eyes were not the hundreds a of pumpkins everywhere, but the big swing ride. Lucas did not seem like he would be a big fan of it, so we skipped it to go on some other rides hoping Lucas would just get in a fun mode and want to give the swings a try. First they went on the jump house where Lucas was happy to try it, but then at the top he felt the jump house swaying in the breeze and would climb back down instead of sliding down.
We went over to the petting zoo area and scored when the nice man working there gave us some free goat food to feed the animals. Maybe not so free since it basically cost us $6 for the three of them to go pet the animals, but it was still nice of him, nonetheless. After much goat feeding, chicken chasing and animal petting we decided to give the big swings a try.
It was a complete success! All three boys loved the swings, they couldn't smile big enough as they were twirled around in the air. Every second and a half another one would fly by waving or yelling hello to us. After a bit more of fun and games, Don and I rounded the kids up and heading over to Nana's house. With out the promise of going to Nana's, I am not sure if we would have been able to get them to leave without tears, but luckily there were no problems that day.
