Pumpkin Patch 2007

Levi's first trip to the Pumpkin Patch

I wasn't too sure if we would make it to the Pumpkin Patch this year due to the fires, more specifically the poor air quality. We had planned to go last week but ended up going today. One of the best parts was that Daddy was able to get away from the office to join us for a couple of hours. It was a wonderful treat for the boys to have Daddy with us. With Daddy along, our pictures always turn out better too. Caleb was in search for the perfect pumpkin as well as looking forward to the petting zoo since he loves animals. Josiah was so excited. Before we left the house, he kept demonstrating how he was going to pick up a big pumpkin and that it was going to be heavy, complete with sound effects for lifting a heavy pumpkin. Josiah found a pumpkin pretty fast and Caleb found his shortly after. However, when we were about to pay and I picked up a tiny pumpkin for Levi, Josiah decided he wanted the tiny pumpkin instead of his pumpkin. He was all set to leave the bigger one behind, but Kerry said to get both. I'm sure he would have been disappointed when he didn't have a pumpkin to carve tomorrow. All in all, we had a very fun family afternoon.

I was so proud of the way Caleb took care of Josiah in the petting zoo. Josiah was a little hesitant and Caleb held him for awhile and then stayed close to him until he was comfortable with the animals.

I think Levi knows he cute.

The sun was pretty bright and they were all trying to keep their eyes open.

Caleb on top of the world!

I am so glad Kerry was able to go with you! What cute pics! I really need to visit that place! The kids would love it!

Looks like you had fun! Here in Japan...no pumpkin patches and moldy pumpkins at the grocery store, so no carving for us! Some day, though, when we finally decide to live stateside again!
