Pumpkins with a Sense of Humor

I took Q to the pumpkin patch yesterday while SwingDaddy was on a bike ride, and we explored the entertainment options. Clearly, the proprietors had been left with stray children in the past.

Yes, that last tag does say, "Day Care Service - $100/child/hour, Uninsured, No License, No References." They had decorated the area with scarecrows, and one straw fellow was snowboarding across the pumpkins.

Q enjoyed inspecting the pumpkins, and we had a grand time until he decided that throwing dirt would be fun and I simultaneously discovered he had a poopy diaper. We headed home immediately, cleaned up, and painted an 'appy face' on our pumpkin friend.

So much fun! Maybe I should open up a daycare, $100/child/hour, I could do that!

It's Japanese Fruit Friend, in pumpkin form!

That pumpkin patch is so annoying. It is right around the corner from us and I can't believe they charge to go in the bounce house. We have boycotted it.

I was going to say exactly what Mir did!

I totally didn't think of the Japanese Fruit Friend connection, but the pumpkin does have a resemblance!

momma to lg - I was surprised that they charged for the bounce house too!

Hmmm... If they get away with that, let me know: it'll be time to raise my rates.
