Pumpkins and Scaredy Cats

We're enjoying the fall festivities even if it is still 90 degrees outside! Friday, Scarlett's class had an impromptu field trip to a nearby pumpkin patch. I was happy to go as a chaperone and see the fun things the kids got to do. There was a story reading:
face painting
a maze
(this was by far the favorite thing!)
cute little cut outs
even Briggs got in on the fun :)
Saturday, we met the Bailey's at a local nursery for the annual "pictures in the pumpkins". We love going somewhere big like the apple orchard or corn maize, but with Brody still kind of hurt we just didn't have the time to go too far this year. This little nursery has a great set up and even a bounce, it's free! The only bad thing this year was that it was kind of drippy outside, so the bounce house was wet. So, my kids didn't want to jump. We may try to go back, or more than likely, we'll just wait until Trunk of Treats at church and bounce there :)

This picture cracks me up. The witch in the background was scaring Scarlett.
It's been a fun month, and we're looking forward to Scarlett's costume parade, Trunk of Treats, and Halloween!

Jill - you look beautiful!! We went to this pumpkin patch too - it was a little scary. One of mine closed his eyes the whole way through the maze!

I hope Brody gets better real soon!
