Haaaay, Pumpkins

Remember that one time when I told you I was from Missouri and Kansas? Yeah, I'm about to prove it right now.

This weekend we took the kids to a cider mill with a pumpkin patch so that we can be folksy just like Sarah Palin. It worked out splendidly.

We were folksy while we picked pumpkins and went on hay rides and then we went on to boost the economy and small business by purchasing our body weight in bags of spices and super fragrant, hand poured candles in jars with scents like cinnamon and fall harvest, which in my mind should have smelled like moldy leaves and rotten apples but it didn't.

So here you go. See? I do have a mid-west motherly bone in my body... somewhere:

Look, my kids like hay


And pumpkins, they like pumpkins too


And, farm animals


And sticking their faces in pictures of pumpkins




And climbing hay


And we did the maze, which was more nightmare than not

and then he climbed hay too


And I was a farm girl


Trying to ignore the farm smell. Gag.

Is that the headband that J got you? And I like your shirt.

I wish I was a good mom and did shit like this. Instead, I got on a barbie scooter and tied a rope around my daughter to me and made her run behind me for an hour...

It was a 'milo maze' because the corn maze was big and scary.

I had fears of rednecks run rampant.

You're making me miss Cantral California and pumpkin patches. Not a lot of that here in LA.

Did you go to the Red Barn Farm in Weston? We went to the Apple Fest there this past weekend. I was too tired to have any fun though.

I meant to comment yesterday on the fact that we were both there and to see what day you went. We went on Sunday morning. Just a few short hours earlier and we would have run into each other.
