The rain finally let up in Michigan and we were able to get out to the pumpkin patch. Tommy was so excited as soon as we pulled up. This pumpkin patch had many straw animals, a wooden train, and a wooden tractor, plus pumpkins! Tommy loved climbing all through the train and also sitting on the tractor, ringing the bell. We finally had to convince him it was time to get his pumpkin. We directed him to the area where he could pick them out. He kept saying "How bout this one?" Chris and I would look at the pumpkin and then look at each other trying to figure out how to tell him he needed to choose a different one because the one he chose was green, or warty, or just a very odd shape. It was like Charlie Brown picking out a Christmas tree. Finally Chris stepped up and picked out a nice pumpkin and asked him if that one was okay, Tommy agreed as long as he could go back on the train, disaster avoided! Anyways, a good time was had by all and we can't wait to carve a pirate pumpkin! Tommy requested that!
