Pumpkin Tourism

Hello there! Sorry I missed my post last Monday. We were just getting back from a weekend in Michigan and I was just too tired. We enjoyed catching up with our family up there, especially Uncle Baba, the boat driver. On Friday, I stayed with Grandma and Grandpa so Mom and Dad could go to Detroit to eat coney dogs and go to some Halloween art show.

Since my last post, I've been to FOUR pumpkin farms. The first one we went to was Johnson's in Saginaw, MI. It is our family favorite (hands down). They had and Elmo and a Thomas Train, which are two of my favorites. It was cold the day we were there, but we were able to warm ourselves inside with cider and donuts.

Next we toured Warmbier Farms in Auburn, MI. No donuts, but they had pumpkin bowling, a bounce house, and a huge box filled with field corn to play in. We rode a horse pulled wagon through their pumpkin field. They were so much bigger than the horses in my board books.

The first pumpkin farm we went to in NC was Ganyard Hills in Durham, which is our favorite near home. We met my friends Evan, Molly, and Connor. We did the hayride and Molly's mom gave us some donuts. Unfortunately they don't sell homemade donuts there. The parents tried to get a group picture of all of us in our Halloween costumes. Uh, yeah, that didn't work out. What were they thinking?

On Saturday we went to Green Acres in Cary. I enjoyed the sand box, but Mom was really disappointed in the place. They don't grow their own pumpkins on-site and there are no homemade donuts.

I really impressed Mom and Dad this weekend. Dad had his iPhone charging on the kitchen counter. I got the footrest from their bedroom, carried it into the kitchen, and then used it to reach the phone. I then opened up YouTube and started playing Elmo videos. How smart am I?!

One way to get a picture of four toddlers: donuts.

Oh, were you trying to keep this from me?

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!

Feeling Corny

On Saturday, Mommy and Trent took a Day of the Dead art class. They learned about the holiday and got to decorate their own skulls.

On Sunday we went to our first dog birthday. Bella across the street turned 4, so she had a park doggie playdate. Lucky her- we haven't done anything for Betty turning one yet.

We also went to our first pumpkin patch of the season.
