On October 31st, our family dressed up as a Family Of Fire Ants (according to Andrew and Elijah), and went out to a pumpkin farm for the day.
It was a gorgeous, sunny but nearly cool day; there were so many fun things to do at the farm, and, most importantly, lots of space to run.

The children begged us to go on a pony ride (they were actually horses), so we finally relented, although it ended just as we assumed it would.
Lavella went with great hesitation:
Andrew refused altogether, and Elijah refused a moment too late:
There were goats to pet:
Trees to climb:

Overall, we had a great time together as a family.
It's fun to make our own family traditions.
