I'm not sure how much longer I can continue this tradition but managed once again to get to a pumpkin patch for some pics with the kids. Jackson may have taken a bribe this year but once we got there he was keen. He's a very good sport for his Mama and I'm so grateful that he is. Huge ugly black clouds loomed above us but we managed to get some shots, conquer the corn maze and play a few games before the rain began and we headed back to the car. The Laity Pumpkin Patch is the same one I took Jackson to when he was just a year old and I don't know that we've been back since. It's a great place with loads of fun activities especially if you have younger children. I would totally recommend it. Another year, another patch. Check out previous years here andhere.

"a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2017"
Jackson: He dressed for pictures but didn't actually go trick or treating this year. Lots of kids his age still go out but he decided against it. He joined us to go to both grandparents houses (and to light a few fireworks off) but then went his own way. He went to a buddies place with a bunch of others and they lit off fireworks and had hot dogs and treats. It was the right choice and he came home with a smile on his face but I did feel a little sad because he's so old already.
Lily: Mary Poppins had a super night and came home with too much loot as usual. So many people were delighted to see her happy costume. I offered to take her umbrella several times during the night but she was keen to play the part til the end.
