We visited an apple farm(they also have a small pumpkin patch) Saturday and had lots of fun taking pics of Ella on top of pumpkins. They also had animals (cows, pigs, goats, donkeys, sheep), so Ella was entertained by those. However, she had the most fun watching the other kids on the small playground. Of course she wanted to play as well, so I held her as she jumped on tire rings-she thought that was just super. Then Daddy held Ella, and Mommy got to act like a kid again and jump as high as she wanted...so much fun. :-)
We didn't buy any pumpkins (though we did purchase some yummy dried apples). Sad? Well, not really. They had already been picked over and we had 2 at home, so it was no big deal. I thought if Ella got really attached to one, we'd buy it but she only liked playing w/the stems or rolling the small ones. In fact, the only way we could get her to sit still on the haystack was to give her small pumpkins to roll off. Then I'd snap the pic as she smiled at the fact that her pumpkin was magically caught by Daddy.
All that to say, we went to the patch, not for pumpkins, but for pictures. Crazy, right? Probably true, but if so, there were 2 other crazy couples there getting shots of their babies on pumpkins and haystacks as well. In fact, at one point, we had to stand in line! I guess moms are all alike in that respect; we'll do anything for that perfect photo opportunity!
