1 day trip, 2 pumpkins, and a BIG chair....

Saturday there was FINALLY a chill in the air!

It was a GORGEOUS day so we jumped in the car and took the kids to a pumpkin patch in Hammond.




First stop were with a few of the farm animals....this goat was trying to get into a lady's diaper bag without her knowing it....

here are a couple other critters.....

oh, and they had chickens too...


then we went and took pictures of us cutting up.....

Curly Girl making faces...



it was like pulling teeth to get Ripstick Boy in a photo...too many teenage girls were watching...


Curly Girl and I went and bounced awhile.....


we got tired quickly!



look at that SMILE!!


Then it was time to pick out a couple pumpkins....


Ripstick Boy searching....



he went WAY out in the field and found the perfect one...


Curly Girl found one too....


Afterwards, we drove to Amite, where Dean is from ..to drive by his old house.

Here is the High School he attended


his old home......with new people there!



this field used to be clear cut for pasture....the new owners planted pine trees....you can see by the size of the trees they've owned this place a lonnnnnng time now.


and check out this wonderful old Oak....next door......


Then, we did a bit of shopping in Mandeville on the way home.

Curly Girl used her OWN MONEY to buy something on sale........she is SO EXCITED to show it to you!!!!


A papasan chair!!!!!

She was thrilled and helped us rearrange her room so it would fit perfectly.
Clover is already happily napping on it.

What a delightful day at the Pumpkin Patch. I still need to pay a visit for a few Jack-o-Lanterns around the house.
