Pictures from the Pumpkin Patch

Sorry I don't have much time to string together more than a few incoherent sentences. Dan is working third shift this week to cover a vacation for a coworker. This means I am on my own 20+ hours each day. If I wasn't appreciative of his move to dayshift before, I sure as hell am now. I barely have enough time to blow my nose, let alone eat, shower and sleep.

We had a wonderful time at the farm this last weekend. We both agreed our only regret was not having enough time to visit with each person like we really hoped. Based on what we've heard so far, we will probably plan to do this again next fall.

Dan, having retrieved our running fool for the 347th time.

Part of Dan's other family, Marc, Linda and Mike relax after a long day.

One of the wagons used to chauffeur guests to the pumpkin patch.

With all of the pumpkins in the field, my child found a gourd.

Riding the wagon back from the pumpkin patch, pooped.

Grant, Emerson, Aveline and Stella...proof that my college friends and I can do something good!

Any parent can tell what Aveline is doing!

The straw maze was a hit with the under 3 crowd!

My sister, Lauren, who is due TODAY, still working.

Yes, we had such a fun time! Thank you for inviting us all out for the day!

And your parents really do have a great farm. One of the best fall farms I've ever been to.
