Pumpkin Patch

I know it has been ages since I posted last here, but I though I would start somewhere instead of abandoning the blog completely. This Monday Andre had a furlough day at school (gotta love budget cuts) and so I was in a way forced to take a day off from work, since Andre had no babysitter for the day. We planned a (now traditional) trip to a real pumpkin patch in Moorepark. The boys as always had a blast, as we had 5 hours of non-stop fun there.

My boys' favorite attraction - combainer converted into a slide. They must have gone on it al least 30 times each.

Harper especially loved the pony ride.

Brotherly love...

Harper and Andre running out the little maze. We did attempt the big maze this year again, and I am happy to tell you all that unlike the failure of last year, where we needed to take a picture of the map and made our way back to the entrance, this year we conquered it! with no help and in almost record time! We did so well, that Andre suggested doing it again - I worried we wouldn't be as lucky the second time around, so we decided against it.

We picked out our pumpkins and will carve them some time this week, hopefully I can keep it up and post the results on the blog.

One of the gifts the boys received for easter was a Butterfly Garden. What it is is they send out 2 container with 5 caterpillars in each and enough food for them inside so you don't have to deal with the caterpillars (yuck!). The kids get to watch the caterpillars grow and then turn into cocoons. Once all the caterpillars change, you transfer the cocoons into the net and wait for them to become butterflies. You can then keep them in that habitat for about a week and then can release them. The boys absolutely loved watching the changes and their favorite part was to be able to get the butterflies go on their fingers. They enjoyed releasing the butterflies.

 This is the habitat the butterflies stayed while in out house.
