a visit to the pumpkin patch

so technically the actual "visit to the pumpkin patch" happened last saturday at about this time, but i've waited until this moment to write about it for dramatic effect...or i just haven't written about it yet. yeah, anyway so my good buddies richelle and siobhan (you know who you are) came to visit last weekend and i told them that we would be frequenting a pumpkin patch and a haunted corn maze. siobhan responded with, "yay! i will bring my hiking boots!" well, alright then. i'm not sure what she was expecting. its not like we were going to be climbing mt. everest in search of the perfect pumpkin, but i went along with it anyway and decided if she wanted to bring her hiking boots, more power to her. little did we know, what she should've brought was a space heater and some long johns. it was freezing out there at the little patch. we had to bundle the little guy up to the point where "he couldn't put his arms down" (yes, that was a shameless plug for a christmas story...its funny though, right) anyway, we all froze our little selves just so we could say...well, mostly I could say that i went to a pumpkin patch. confession--i'm 28 years old and this was my first pumpkin patch...sad but true. i'm so glad i could get that off my chest. okay, so when the rain started pouring, we decided we'd had enough nostalgia for one day and decided to hit the road. i just realized that i'm not the computer that has the pictures from the fateful day among the pumpkins, i guess you'll just have to wait in suspense...i'm sure you will too:)
