Usually during October, we city folks go to a pretend pumpkin patch. It is set up in the Mall parking lot, with lots of straw and giant blow up carnival type rides. There are pumpkins everywhere and all of them way over priced. The past 4 years we have gone to the parking lot pumpkin patch, snapped a few photos of the boys by pumpkins and called it a good autumn experience. This year we went back to Scott's roots. A real farm with real pumpkins still in the dirt.
During our trip to Idaho, we went to Grandview and got in touch with our inner rural selves. I probably shouldn't say "our", I should say Scott's and the boys inner rural selves.
We all had a great time. Did you know you could eat corn right off the stalk, without cooking it. It was delish.
Vance boys in there natural habitat. Don't they fit in well?
Today I feel like I have deprived my children. They woke up to the first rainfall of the year and said, "Mom what's that?". On the way to Dad's work, they were very excited about the windshield wipers and as soon as we got home at 7:15am they had to go outside and walk in the rain. They were outside for an hour. We have already been through pajamas, and two pair of clothes. This is what it looks like for a child to see rain for the first time.
Mom of three crazy little children. They keep me running all day. Other interests include excersising, crafting, and pretending to be a gourmet chef. Lets be honest. If i finish the dishes its been a great day. I enjoy anything in the great outdoors but at this point in my life that only includes a variety of parks and swimming pools.
