We went to visit a pumpkin farm today with some of Noah's friends.
First, Noah came face to face with an astonishing new creature.
But not too close. I believe Goats are not to be trusted.
Then we took a hayride to the pumpkin patch. Noah was skeptical about the camera, but loved the hay.
There was a corn maze for the grown-ups and an obstacle course for the kids. Gavin showed the babies how to go through the tunnel.
Noah got to check out some cornstalks...
Oooh -more hay!
And now I present Chad's favorite shot of the day, for which I cannot think of a worthy caption.
Nice face, kid. I expect this is just a glimmer of the faces I will encounter when trying to get him to take a picture with me in a few years...
Next on the schedule - picking out a pumpkin to bring home.
Unfortunately, the first pumpkin Noah appraised was on an elevated ridge. Apparently a very narrow, unbalanced ridge.
I'm cool. Just wanted to check out the pumpkins down here...
Yup, I'll just give this one a knock to check out its ripeness.
And a little squeeze...
Back at the farm store, Maytal joined the boys for a little photo shoot in the merchandise.
Do you know how hard it is to get 4 babies to look at you at the same time?
It's hard. Especially when 4 sets of parents are all trying to do so at the same time. We're not even going to talk about trying to get them to smile.
So we'll have to settle for individual smiles. With pumpkins.
