D and I took the children to a pumpkin farm, while A studied for her exams.


There were pumpkins everywhere, in huge heaps.

IMG_3660 I enjoyed seeing the Halloween-themed displays: IMG_3739 IMG_3664 IMG_3628 IMG_3629 IMG_3631 IMG_3632 IMG_3634 IMG_3635 IMG_3636 IMG_3637 IMG_3639 IMG_3661 IMG_3671 Such pretty gourds! IMG_3644 We met a few people who had apparently passed on: IMG_3655 The children, of course, had a great time! IMG_3665 Here they are in the "fort": IMG_3746 IMG_3758 IMG_3759 Boys will always be rambunctious, and girls will always look on! IMG_3761 IMG_3767 Halloween can be a heavy pumpkin! IMG_3778 There were several ticketed rides. IMG_3694 IMG_3697 There were a lot of old farm implements, and vehicles, too. IMG_3747 IMG_3624 IMG_3680 IMG_3711 Oooh, Bonnie and Clyde! IMG_3712 IMG_3736 I never knew I could find tigers (and that, too, a white tiger!) in Missouri... IMG_3713 I liked the persistence of this sign. IMG_3782 We went home in the setting sun: IMG_3786
