Punkin Patch

I have been waiting for a beautiful, warm and sunny afternoon to take the boys to pick out some pumpkins. Chris got home early one afternoon last week, so we headed to the patch. In my head I had a few certain pictures I knew I wanted and I pictured Crockett having SO much fun picking out the perfect pumpkin to make a jack-o-lantern. I should know better... Crockett was a little irritated that we took him away from his neighborhood buddies and his bike before we even left the house. That should have been a red flag. Once we got to the pumpkin patch, Bowen had fallen asleep, but Crockett was finally happy. We went and got a wagon to put our pumpkins in and the search for the perfect pumpkin was on! Crockett went straight (kind of) to the little pumpkins and began filling up the wagon. He was in the middle of load #4 or 5 when we told him he had to put some of the little ones back. That was not ok with him... So the tantrum began. He was not happy. He didn't want a big pumpkin. Then he wanted to move all the pumpkins and stand up on the hay. And when I finally decided on a couple of BIG pumpkins, he didn't want them in the wagon. Needless to say, our trip to the pumpkin patch was not the perfect family outing I had planned in my head... at least I got a couple cute pictures out of it :) And Crockett ended up with about 4 little pumpkins that he carries around in his bike every day! Sometimes it's the little things :)
