Over the weekend we went to the pumpkin patch. The family ended up hauling out two cart fulls of pumpkins, the biggest one on this cart belongs to my 6-yr. old (boy is he going to have fun helping clean out that baby!). All of the sudden I'm craving pumpkin seeds. ;)
Every year we call and ask grandma and grandpa, and a cousin close to my youngest son's age to come along. It's a fun day. This year we went to one that had a tractor pull that took you through quite a bit of property. Just so happens the property used to belong to the Indian tribe my father-in-law comes from, and he and the driver had been chatting earlier, so the driver had him stand up on that ride to get recognized. That was kind of cool for grandpa. :) He deserves happy things, he's such a nice person, and all of the kids l.o.v.e. grandpa!!

Then we went to feed the fish. For some reason the kiddos like that part, but the fish weren't very hungry. I guess we should have went earlier in the day when they hadn't already been fed by so many others.
The weekends also bring soccer, and after the game we went to the Halloween store to try and find a knightly sword to go with my son's costume. We did not come across a sword we liked, but we did see what he would like like as King Tut. ;)
When we got home we made some donuts. The kids have that little doughnut maker and they wanted to make some Halloween treats.
Overall it was a productive, fun weekend. Now it's a new week already and we're back to the grindstone. Wishing you all a productive, happy week. :)
