Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday was a beautiful 70 degrees, sort of cool, sunny and breezy fall day. It was a perfect day to visit the pumpkin patch. Max went last year with his cousins and grandparents but he rode in his car seat and probably slept the whole time! This year was much more fun. He walked around, looked at animals, ate apple donuts, drank apple slush, picked a pumpkin, and drove the horse drawn carriage we rode (well, the nice cowboys let him hold the reigns!). It was a blast, we can't wait to go back with his cousins!

Looking at chickens



Our ride to the pumpkin patch, very curious about the earth moving.



On daddy's shoulders, walking through mud to pick a pumpkin.



Max's first pumpkin!







Headed back, "driving the carriage"




Side note... while we didn't cheer much for the Chiefs today, we did cheer for Max. He decided that today he would stop crawling. He stands up when he falls and without grabbing on to anything! He was so proud of himself. We would say "yay, Max!" when he would stand up, then he would clap, squeal, giggle, and repeat! What a fun age. Well except for the fit throwing, short naps and throwing food on the floor. That part is not so fun. But, I know, "part of having a kid!"

He looks handsome in that shirt. Did Dad pick an all green pumpkin in that last picture? Looks yucky! See you in a week!!!!

I haven't checked your blog for a several days. What fun he had at the pumpkin patch and the pictures are adorable. He is growing so fast - we are anxious to see him and yes his parents. Probably Thanksgiving, unless you could have a trip this way.

We love you and give Max hugs and kisses from Gmaw and Gdad
