We took a family trip to a pumpkin patch that’s the pick-your-own style. There are several square miles of patch to drive through and then games and animals at the end.
I thought the girls would have fun. I think I was wrong…
They were thrilled, obviously. Addy didn’t really mind (so long as she was allowed the pacifier- so sue me…), and was even somewhat interested in the pumpkins.
And once Piper had a job to do (pumpkin hunting), she did better, too.
Not particularly loving it, but at least they were tolerating our super fun outing that we were looking forward to because we knew that they’d love it.
Once we fought through the horrendously-slow-going “traffic” and go to the fun part, things got exciting. We let the girls jump in one of the jumping castles; they loved it! The lady watching kept them back one cycle so that there were only about four little kids in at once, and no big kids that would knock them over. They both had a blast!
So at least it wasn’t a complete flop.
And it only took me three weeks to get all of the hay off of their socks and out of their clothes…22
