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…

Enter if you dare

Bring on the next pumpkin patch!

Autumn Leaves

Two weeks have passed since I left Cindy and the boys for Pennsylvania. I understand the weather in Mississippi has been very hot and humid (especially for October). Walking outside was described to me as breathing through a wet mop. I suppose that’s true when it’s 91° and the humidity index tips the scale at 100+ !

Quite the opposite here where the days are floating in the 70s and the nights drop into the 50s. It feels like autumn, and the leaves are changing. It’s beautiful country, and it’ll look even better when my family gets here!
