Pumpkin Patch 2010

Today the kids and I took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. It was a little sad to go by ourselves, but generally Cricket and the kids drive over to go with us, but she figured driving from Michigan was a little too far for a bunch of pumpkins!
The straw house is always a big hit with Possum. He loves jumping from bale to bale.

Possum wanted a picture made with each crate of pumpkins.

We have had a full day. The day began early at the pumpkin patch and was followed by clothes shopping for Squirrel. Possum was not at all amused with the shopping. We had a little conversation in Kohl's that went kinda like this....
Possum- Looking around the store, "Mommy, I don't see any boys in here shopping."
Me- After looking around, "No Possum I don't guess there are."
P- "You know why Mommy?"
M-"No Possum I don't."
P- "It's because boys aren't supposed to shop. They are supposed to be at home watching the football game."
I guess they learn early! He has been so excited all day about the Alabama game tonight. As soon as we got home this evening he ran and put his Roll Tide shirt on! He is now sitting on the couch beside of his Daddy with his shaker in hand cheering on his team!
We all just had a great piece of homemade apple pie with fresh apples (that were named after Possum) from the orchard and cinnamon Blue Bell ice cream. Now to watch Alabama eat the Gators!
