From Brian: The family went to a small pumpkin patch last week to purchase a few decorative pumpkins. (Next week we plan to buy the bigger jack-o’-lantern-type pumpkins.)

This particular pumpkin patch was unlike the one that he traditionally visits (Last year: https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2009/10/31/pumpkin-day, and the year before (his first visit to a pumpkin patch): https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2008/10/13/our-first-trip-to-the-pumpkin-patch), so we didn’t know how he would react. However, as you can see by the photos above and below, he was so incredibly happy.

Hmmmm. What should I order?


His dinner included a free ice cream cone!

At this moment, I can’t recall Robert ever having an ice cream cone to himself. He didn’t eat all of it, but he really enjoyed it (though his jacket did not).

Speaking of messes, on the following night (Monday), Robert had his very first bath in the big bathtub!

Playing in the Park Tonight

From Brian: Due to Robert’s request, we played in the park and ate take-out dinner on a picnic bench. (Well, Robert wasn’t very interested in eating.) Here’s a video of Robert playing in the park in the early evening:
