Pumpkin Patch

I have always been afraid of spiders, especially large spiders, but today I met some nice spiders who I thought were cute and one spider assured me that it wouldn't bite me if I hugged it.

The spider looks more afraid of me doesn't it?

This spider lost it's eyes and Dylan and Kyra are trying to put his eyes back on.  I see he's had a rough time because some of his legs have also fallen off.  Poor spider.

Of course I made Jimmy pose with the spider too.  You can see by the look on his Jimmy's face that he really didn't want to pose with the spider, but he did it for me :)

Here's the gang that went to the pumpkin patch.  Sandie is missing from the picture above because she was taking the picture, but I'm hoping that she's included in the picture below because it looks like this Sandy (me) is missing from it.

The day was perfect.  It was in the upper 60's without a cloud in the sky, but it was a little windy.  The cool weather made it easy to walk around the farm.

Some just enjoyed riding in the wagon 

Some had trouble carrying their pumpkins to the wagon and needed help from grandma Sandie.

And some just wanted small pumpkins and wanted to be carried around by their great-Papaw.

There were pony's and horses to ride, chickens, ducks, rabbits, cows, goats to feed, and hound dogs to pet.  There was also a maze made out of hay bales for the kids to wander around in, and also a corn field to get lost in.

This is Baldwin Mountain which the kids had fun climbing.

Julianna had no fear of any of the animals except she kept her distance from an old nine year old rooster that was wandering around.  I think everyone had fun today and we all went home tired and with an arm load of pumpkins, squash, honey, green beans, bell peppers and sleepy children.
