Last year we went to the pumpkin patch with my parents when Stella was only two weeks old. We picked out two pumpkins and then carved them the night before Wes left for a business trip. Two days later they were completely rotted out and in my rush to get them off the front path I threw them in the garbage can without putting them in a bag first. When Wes got back home he had to clean and bleach the garbage can to get rid of all the mold and pumpkin guts, and the flies that were attracted to that. This year, we decided to go to the pumpkin patch but skip the pumpkins since Stella’s still so young.
She’s still in transition from two naps to one nap so she was pretty tired by the time we got out there. Don’t let those clouds fool you, it was still ridiculously hot and humid while we were out there. We decided to check out the petting zoo but once we got to it we realized that it might be a little to intense for a one-year old.
So instead we got a family photo, surrounded by many rotting pumpkins. On the way out we got a few more pictures of Stella with the mini pumpkins before heading out. There were a lot more activities for older kids but right now it’s all a little over Stella’s head. But at least it got us out of the house and stretching our legs!
