Charlie’s been asking (I’m pretty sure at his mama’s nudging) to get pumpkins. and today we did. I planned a morning outing to a somewhat local (16 miles and a 40 minute drive – is that “local”?) pumpkin patch, but when we arrived, they said it was only open at 9:30 am for “reserved groups”. We could come back at 3:30 pm when they opened to the public. well ugh.
Instead we went to a playground with a big slide
“all by myself” he said once we’d climbed together to the top. I raced down the stairs and got to the bottom just in time. and then he did it again. and again. and then the swing.
and then Home Depot. Five pumpkins and two “big flowers” later we made it home. I’m sure the photos from the pumpkin patch would’ve been great. but I’m guessing there wouldn’t be butterflies. because no flowers, right?
and these two photos are my favorites … in a very long time!
We also had two FaceTimes with Poppa … turns out the 13 hour time difference (and perhaps a bit of jet lag on the Korea side) works pretty good on Tuesdays. Both boys were just waking up at 3:30 pm ET 🙂
…and a quick report on my solo week – the poncho is done, Mad Men is done and I’ll have a baby hat done in another few hours. I’ve heard really good things about Call the Midwife – and I can’t imagine I’ll blow through all those episodes in a day – so I’m going to watch that next. Other suggestions welcome (watching, reading, knitting, food, drink … I’m open!)
