Pumpkin Patch 2012

October has flown by! I can't believe we are nearing the end of the month. The weather here has changed big time. Cold and rainy. On Saturday the rain parted and we decided to hit the pumpkin patch, kind of at the last minute, not sure when we would get another opportunity. We decided to go somewhere here in Olympia instead of our usual spot near Shelton. Closer. Easier. It was great fun. We drank cider, ate caramel corn, looked at animals, rode kid trains, picked out pumpkins and almost left in time to miss the torential down pour......almost. Instead we carried our big heavy pumpkins through the muddy, muddy parking lot and got absolutey soaked. It rained so hard it was comical. Like I said, it was almost perfect timing with that!
This was a big year. Brendan carved his own pumpkin! Like with knife!!! I was scared. He was not scared, and actually he was very safe and did a great job. ...growing up.
