One of our favourite things to do at this time of year is to visit the pumpkin patch at Hatton Country World. We left it very late this year – in fact we didn’t go until the day of Halloween and it was a bit of a last minute thing. It had rained all morning and everyone had been a bit grumpy and it seemed a long, long time until bed. I was feeling bad because I had shouted with one of the twins because she had kept messing with things I had asked her to leave alone. Suddenly the sky cleared and it seemed like a good time to get outside.
This is just a little reminder for me not to leave it so late next year.
We have the nursery teddies this week as homework for the twins. One came along on the outing. She had a little unexpected splash in the mud.
Choosing a pumpkin takes a lot of work.
The twins were very pleased with their haul.
