Pumpkin Patch Partyland!
Last Thursday I was able to go with Alec and my niece Skylar on a Jelly Bean Junction (or as Alec often calls it, Belly Jean Dunction) field trip to a pumpkin patch. Sky and Alec enjoyed a tractor-trailer tour to view rows and rows of growing veggies, choosing a perfect pumpkin, slipping down giant haystack slides, riding on a cow and pig barrel train, playing in a corn kernel (in lieu of sand) box, and running around like crazy.
Alec is such a fun boy. His exuberance for life is unmatched and Brent aptly calls him a 'good celebrator'. His characteristic fist pump and exclamatory "YESSSS!" are my favorite. I chose between getting a pedicure for my sore marathon feet or going with him on his field trip. My toenail polish is peeling, my heels need scrubbing, my feet are still sore but my spirit is full. Time and energy well-spent.
