As has become a tradition with Mom and the boys, October begs for a visit to the pumpkin patch. This year’s visit was a local establishment and Alex encountered one of his friends from school–Mackenzie. Where’s Dad? He’s not much of a fan of pumpkin patches…although his favorite Peanuts cartoon has always been The Great Pumpkin. Weird.

Alex visited the pumpkin patch today…as always, the epitome of “cool”. This is the first of many such visits, as Mom is attracted to pumpkin patches and Fall Festivals like a fly to, well, you know…

Well, I guess autumn is finally here! Not because there’s a chill in the air or because leaves are turning, nope, we know autumn is here because Cindy is dragging me to the first pumpkin patch of the season! Not just ANY pumpkin patch, mind you, this one comes with a “Fun Zone”…

And what is a “Fun Zone” without a humongous slide, which is, of course, the boys favorite thing! Pumpkins? What pumpkins??

With the sliding done, we’re done right? Wrong! There’s a petting zoo (of sorts)…

Alex was a little cautions about feeding the animals, but Mommy helped ease him into it…

So with the slide done, and the petting zoo done, we’re finished, right? Wrong! There’s a hayride! Where I got to listen to the guy driving the tractor disparage the Gators. Well, what do you expect from a guy that wears two different colored socks? Yep.

Let’s see…

We’re done now…well, not quite. There’s was this tube thing, and Alex really seemed to like it…a lot!

What’s left besides buying a $25 pumpkin on the way out? Nothing? Whoo-hoo! All-in-all is wasn’t THAT bad…and the boys had a good time. I guess the sign on the little house below says it all…
