We took the boys to a local pumpkin patch to see some animals, pick out a pumpkin of their own, and 'experience fall'. There were two large fields of pumpkins and I was certain that they were going to want to pick the largest pumpkin they could find, but instead they searched and searched for pumpkins small enough that they could carry it themselves. They would walk around saying, "too big, too big, too big...." Then when they found one that they thought they could manage they very excitedly would run to that pumpkin and clumsily maneuver themselves back to the wheel barrow to add it to their pile. Together they collected about 6-7 small pumpkins...by themselves, then they got to choose one to take home.

My sister, came over for a visit with her children and all the kids had so much fun with their cousins. My sister and I had a good time too catching up, being close, and watching the kids enjoy one another. It was a house full as we had all six kids and three adults in our two bedroom condo, but the close proximity just made it more cozy.
