What a difference a year makes! Not usually used in the context that I am about to use it in, but still applies! Last year we went to the pumpkin patch many times and each time was quite the adventure with an 18 month old. He loved to sit on the pumpkins, loved to pick up the pumpkins (well at least try)! This year was quite the opposite with a 2 1/2 year old! Did he love the pumpkin patch? Oh yeah! Did he have as much fun as last year? No doubt! What's the problem? What he loved so much this year was running through the pumpkins, which is very cute, but does NOT make for good pictures, well, unless you like a blue jean and white blur on an orange background!! I don't think he was still for more than a couple seconds! He loved running the aisles of pumpkins and wanted nothing to do with picking up these big pumpkins. After all, they were "too heavy" and "too big" for a 2 year old, besides that would require stopping for a moment! Oh, well, they will still go in the scrapbook and we still had fun! Maybe the leaf pictures will be better!
