Sam decided not to go to the free FSBL basketball clinic, so everyone headed out to Great Country Farms for a rare November trip to the "pumpkin patch". It was a lovely warm afternoon, and the $5 coupons and lack of crowds made for a great afternoon.
Activities - bounce pillow, feeding turkeys/pigs/goats/horses/ducks, rope maze, corn bin, giant chess, slides, corn maze, broken tractor maze, hot dogs, pedal carts, rope swings, throwing rocks at punpkins.
They knew to skip the never-ending hayride this time. The only downsides were no live music, no ice cream truck, ran out of hot dogs, and no mini golf balls left.
Pete spent a few dollars getting candy in the shop, and then sadly it was time to head home. This left plenty of time for everyone to begin the mental preparations for a long week of drudgery at work and/or school, but at least with some fond memories of another glorious weekend afternoon spent together.
