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.

Afterward, we all went out to dinner! (Recall: https://beanieblog.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/ice-cream-mess-the-big-bathtub)
