A Not-So-Playful Time in the Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday, Little Lion Man and I visited the Harvester United Methodist Church for their annual Playtime in the Patch event.  I was so excited to bring LLM to the pumpkin patch, because the when the girls were little, they enjoyed it immensely.  They loved seeing and touching all the different colors, shapes and sizes and picking one to bring home.

I assumed LLM would love pumpkins too.  After all, the mini pumpkins resemble balls he can throw and he’s all about throwing things these days.

However, he wasn’t quite as enamored as I had hoped.  He enjoyed the Dum Dum lollipops though.

And tugging on the tent rope was fun until he spotted the road and thought that would be more fun to run through than the pumpkin patch.

Every day I am reminded that boys are so different from girls.

    Hee hee, ain’t it the truth. I can’t believe how many outings we’ve had recently where we’re thinking, “Mikko will love this!” and he’s all like, “Meh.” Oh, well! You got really cute shots, anyhow. I love the orange colors!

    We are attempting a pumpkin patch again this year after taking a few year break. I hope it goes well. 🙂 You got some great shots!
