Pumpkin Patch

October is of course the time of year for the wonderful pumpkin patch. We went last Sat. out to McCalls Pumpkin Patch in Moriarty New Mexico. It's about 45 minutes from our house, but everyone goes. This was our first year. It's really more like a giant pumpkin patch carnival. Ruby had a great time. They had a giant pillow jumper, a hay bale pyramid to climb, and Ruby's favorite the giant hill of dirt with tube slides running from the top to bottom. You walk to the top of this mountain of dirt and slide to the bottom on a burlap sack. She went almost 10 times. That is some serious energy. Jeffrey wasn't nearly as enthusiastic about spending the afternoon out in the wind with dirt blowing in his face, he was quite angry about the whole thing, so this was my first time walking around a pumpkin patch nursing a baby while trying not to be noticed, trying to calm down a seriously ticked baby boy. I think he screamed nearly the whole tractor ride back to the ranch. But Ruby has a great time. Sorry you were born second Jeffrey.

Ruby is growing so fast! She will probably be taller than me next time we see each other!

Hey that looks like a fun pumpkin patch, but where are the Pumpkins?

Holy Crap. Ruby looks like she is going to get her driver's license next week. How did she grow up so fast? Tell her I love her, and she looks beautiful. :)
