October 31st fun

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.




Corn maze.







Running through hay tunnels.




Sand Art Jack-o-lanterns.




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:






(Greg is seen here wearing a hat that I knit for him a few years ago.)


Overall, we had a great time together as a family.




It's fun to make our own family traditions.
