Halloween Hilarity

Today has been a trying day. Granted, I had some good things happen (see previous post), but also had an early morning child meltdown and an afternoon that involved Max dropping my most expensive and favorite perfume bottle on the granite tile floor in the bathroom shattering it to pieces. But despite it all, I decided it would be fun to take the kids to a pumpkin patch I saw not too far from our house. Having not been to one since any of my kids had been born I thought it would be a great place to take some pics. So my niece and nephew wanted to come along and I invited my friend Melain and her kid to come along. Before we could even get going I realized the camera I had in my car (the one that takes the better pics) battery was dead, so we had to go back to the house to get the more compact camera. Ok so now we are on our way. We follow the signs down the road, hang a left, keep following those pumpkins, I see the sign, YAY, it says.....closed. But it did say Monday through Friday open from 4-9 so I think maybe they just forgot to turn the closed sign, because the gate is open. So I proceed to drive through the gate where I see a man and ask if it is open. He tells me they are pretty much sold out but if we find anything to go ahead and take it, just give this other guy there some money for cigarettes, ha ha. It isn't looking promising, literally, we can see the field. But we had driven out so we all unpile out of the cars and this is what we find.

I didn't get any good shots of all the rotted ones, but you get the idea. Picturesque, huh?
At least Cheyenne and Lex found something not dead yet.

In the end, we came back with some objects that resemble pumpkins (and that weren't rotten and moldy), and the kids had a good time, so I guess it wasn't a complete waste of time after all.
