Last week Joseph was on fall break from school and we decided to take advantage of the season and go to a pumpkin patch. We went with some of the other kids from Joseph's class up to Mazzotti Farms. They did a short educational part for the kids on the different kinds of pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn before they let the kids loose to pick out their own corn, gourd and pumpkins. Then they were able to go through the corn maze, down the slide a bunch of times and pet the animals. The kids all had a blast playing together and it was fun for me to get to know some of the parents better.
