We took Sam to a pumpkin patch with our friends Heath, Gretchen, and their cute little girls. It was a blast! Sam loved it! Sam recently mastered the word "ball" and uses it when referring to anything that is round - so, he of course thought he was in a room full of orange balls! He kept saying ball over and over as he pointed to every pumpkin he saw. It was pretty cute :) Then he started picking up the little pumpkins and throwing them on the ground, fully expecting them to bounce like a real ball. That was when we realized that we had to clear up the confusion, and explain the difference between a pumpkin and ball, or else we'd be paying for lots of smashed pumpkins!
I knew that I wanted to get a nice family picture at the pumpkin patch, and when I think about pumpkin patches, I think of the fall, the crisp air, and leaves turning colors. But its a different story here in Florida. It was 92 degrees and SUPER humid, but I didn't feel like it was a real pumpkin patch experience if we weren't dressed like it was cold outside...so we faked it and wore long pants and somewhat long sleeved shirts. I just wanted to feel like it really was the fall, despite the super hot weather outside. So we were sweating like crazy, but we have a great pumpkin patch family picture!
We are all doing great! Sam's measles are long gone, and he is as happy as a clam! Hope all is well with everyone!
