Pumpkin Patch

What kind of Halloween would it be without a jaunt to Lakeview Farms? Gram-mo & Pop Pop were in town, so they joined in the fun, along with the Tweeds, since Eddie cannot miss any opportunity to ride in a wheel barrow.

After riding a miniature train to the patch, then a barge across a lake complete with erupting Jaws replica, smoke breathing dragon, and pirates (Bay's fave), they boys were ready for more action!

Can you believe I let my boys ride in the catepillar train? This this is pulled by a tractor, and there are no safety devices whatsoever. Of course, all three of them declared this was the best part of the entire outing.

Ultimately, U wasn't the best for us. The boys flat out refused to try Udon noodles, or even take a trip to Uwijamaya (Asian grocery store). I offered to make an Upside Down Cake, but one look at the picture and they balked. Ugli fruit met a similar fate. They've lost their usual enthusiasm for unique letter releated experiences.

We did buy umbrellas for everyone, read the Ugly Duckling, do a puzzle of the United States and study the Universe, especially Uranus.
