One of the reasons I love October is the fall festivities. One of my favorites is the pumpkin patch. The boys and I took a road trip up to Bakersfield to visit our "neighbors". Cynthia was also without a husband. So what do we do when there are no husbands we load up 7 kids and head out for fun. We had a blast. I was utterly amazed at their great behavior since they had stayed up late the night before. They went through a maze, pretended we were ants, went on a hay ride, had a picnic, and got our face painted. We have been going to pumpkin patches for awhile (since the big boys were babies) so there was some nostalgia for us. See next post.
