We finally made it to the pumpkin patch for a little FHE action on Monday. Jake was convinced that the patch was actually a giant obstacle course, and he took his mission to climb over each and every pumpkin quite seriously. It was adorable watching him scale the ravines, lift his little legs over the big pumpkins, and then clap for himself as he'd accomplish his goals. Jake would have stayed there all day if we'd let him! Finally, he landed on the perfect pumpkin, so we paid our dues and took it home.
A few hours later, we whipped out the paint and let Jake go to town. Unfortunately for the little guy, the paint resembled this yummy thing called icing... but didn't taste anything like it! He felt quite betrayed when he put the paint in his mouth and tasted something quite different from sugar. (Thank goodness for non-toxic paint, though, right?) One chocolate chip later, we were back on the right track. Jake loved making his messy little masterpiece.
