the pumpkin patch

dillon has been asking to go to the pumpkin patch since... well, probably since february. everytime we drive by the lot where it is he asks when it's coming back. so, a few days before halloween, we finally took him. and then the pumpkin patch promptly took all our money.

when i was little we used to go to the pumpkin patch at the local dairy. it didn't have bounce houses, slides, pony rides, petting zoos, etc. it had pumpkins. and some hay. after all, it was a pumpkin patch. and the pumpkins didn't cost an arm and a leg.

so, we went to the pumpkin patch and let dillon go down the $5 slide. and jump in the $3 jumper. and go in the $4 obstacle course. and then after, well we went to the market and bought pumpkins for $2.50 each. the same sized pumpkins that they were selling for $20 at the pumpkin patch. i wonder how many pumpkins the so called "pumpkin patch" actually sells?

(and while dillon jumped and played, i totally geeked out and took a ton of pictures of pumpkins - quite possibly the real reason why i wanted to go to overpriced pumpkin patch in the first place.)
