We took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch this year and as always we had a great time. I love the fact that we have created these type of traditions with our kids. I have such strong memories of this exact pumpkin patch when I was growing up and now to see my kids running through the fields…well…it is just a great reminder why we live in Lawrence.
Like the How Tall sign…we have been doing this sign since Scout was only 3 months old!
They added a new play area this year that the kids loved. (Again showing the tradition thing Scout was super excited by the new set! She immediately recognized that it had not been there before.)
Tru loved the tunnel under the hay. He crawled back and forth over and over.
Truman, as always, had a great time people watching. I swear that kid is amused by the human race. He is such a detail guy. When he gets his hands on something new or is in a new situation he really takes the time to take it all in and look everything over. He spent about 15 minutes checking out the pumpkin before deciding that was the one for him!
When we got home we started carving. Truman was hillarious trying to figure out what the heck we were doing. Scout was the artist this year and designed our pumpkins for us while Mommy and Daddy did the actual carving. Truman helped clean out the inside of the pumpkin and he liked to squish the goo.
Scout made a Kitty Pumpkin
Truman and the pumpkin had matching grins!
My pumpkin, Scout’s, Truman’s and Chad’s. Not a bad looking group.
Another wonderful fall tradition that we now get to share with our little guy...such a joy!
