Pumpkin Patch

We had a free evening the other night so we headed out to the pumpkin patch! It was beautiful weather and we picked out some great pumpkins and gourds to decorate the house. Have I mentioned that I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR? Well- I do and having pumpkins sitting around the house just fills me with warmth and joy!!!:)
When we got there the kids really wanted to go through the corn maze but sadly Reese disobeyed and didn't get to go (I hate when they have to miss out like that:( Anyways Greg took Reese to the car and Abby and I started our adventure through the maze....the VERY big maze:) We did ok but it took us quite awhile to get through---we were happy to see the exit to say the least:)
Well after we got done Greg and Reese joined us and the kids picked a pumpkin they liked and that seemed to cheer Reese up a little. (he is still talking about how he didn't get to go through the maze so I guess it was effective even though it was very painful for Greg and I) I believe you now Mom and Dad when you said, "this hurts me more than you" :) It really does! I told Reese the other day that I would rather him learn now with less severe consequences than when he gets bigger because the consequences get BIGGER too! (he seemed to get it:)
Oh Lord let him get it!!!!!

Finally made it to the end...notice it is dark:) Greg and Reese came looking for us because we took so long-HA!

My pumpkin!

Going to the pumpkin patch is my favorite thing to do during the Fall--I love pumpkins!!!

Looks like you had a great time! Where is this pumpkin patch? I'd love to take the boys.
Oh, and I know what you mean about parenting and "consequences"'s such a bummer when their punishment punishes the grown-ups too!
