Come, O Great Pumpkin....

Happy Fall Everyone! As you know from previous posts, this is definitely my favorite time of year. In following the traditions of last year and making some new ones (thank goodness the hubby is home!) we ended up where everyone goes around this time: to a pumpkin patch, on a mission to find the most beautiful and perfect pumpkins. When we arrived, we eagerly awaited a wheelbarrow or radio flyer wagon to collect our pumpkins. Little did we know that Ethan would through a huge fit because he, yes, you guessed it....he spotted a red wagon that looked exactly like his! It didn't even dawn on us to bring his :( It didn't bother him that others were using it, he wanted to help push the wagon to wherever they were going. After explaining to him (like you can explain anything to a determined 14 month old!) that the red wagon wasn't his, we got him interested in a wheelbarrow, but he really couldn't push it as well. That lasted only a few moments. As a mother and her kids were leaving they gave us the wagon that they were using. Ah, my hero! Another mother came to my rescue! Rule of thumb: Next year, we are bringing the wagon =)

After our dilemma with the wagon, it was awesome! We had such a great time and it was even a little chilly out =) Ethan could have cared less if we even bought a pumpkin, he just loved being able to push a wagon around and to be outside. It was definitely worth the fussing that Ethan did at the beginning! To be honest, I think Jeremiah and I had much more fun watching and taking pics of Ethan. After all, isn't that why you have children? To love on them and get to do stuff with them that you loved when you were little?! Our outing ended with lunch at none other than, Chick-Fil-A! It's the BEST!

Mr. Ethan McMuscles~loved pushing the wagon =)

Taking a time out to pose with Mommy! He's pretty much oblivious to the camera these days (that's probably why we only get a few with him actually looking at the camera!) Such a boy!

I wonder if this counts as child labor?!

Ethan, testing out the hay. Someone should have told him, that Hay is for Horses!
