Pun'kin Pik'in

Last Tuesday we had a day of sunshine so we took the boys to the pumpkin patch. It was, of course, Sawyer's first time there so we made sure that he was dressed for the occasion. Brandon had been asking if we could go to the pumpkin patch with the monster truck. He was so excited when he figured out that we were headed to that exact place. It was great watching climb into the back of the giant truck with a big smile on his face. After the ride, the boys got to launch apples at targets with big slingshots. They didn't hit of the targets, but they had fun just the same. Then we went and picked our our pumpkins and the boys played with the pygmy goats. As we were checking out Logan kept begging to go into the haunted house. I KNEW that he would be scared, but I also knew that he would be upset if Brandon got to pick something to do and he didn't. So I bought 3 tickets and Chris took them through the haunted house. It wasn't like a usual haunted house that you go through with people hiding behind the walls. But only because it was still daytime. But at night they turn it into a much scarier affair. So the actual walk thru wasn't all that frightening. But the hallway that leads to the exit door has a rig in the floor that blows an airhorn when you walk across it. Well that scared the poop out of both of the boys and they came out terrified. Logan burst into tears when they got outside. He has let us know over and over since then that he will never again be going into a haunted house. Poor kid.

All in all it was a great evening for our little family and ended with some yummy dinner at our favorite mexican place. I love nights like that.
