Pumpkins! Pumpkins! Pumpkins!

Hi people,
Its Cade. Today my parents took me to a pumpkin place 1/2 hour into the country. Does this sound ridiculous anyone? They could have just bought a few of those big orange things and plunked me in the backyard for my photo-op but noooo.

So we get there and its not a pumpkin patch but a tent with pumpkins and hay. Apparently they have a corn maze and all these other cool things to do but we didn't do any of them. I think they were too lazy, but they tried to pawn it off on me being too young. They wouldn't even let me get my face painted. Maybe that was because the face painting lady had some demented looking cats painted on to her cheeks???

So they took about 2000 pictures and I wouldn't smile until my mom sang that crazy Zellers ABC-Z song. Ha ha, some lady overheard this, ha ha ha! After that I figured I'd better smile for them, since she put forth the effort to make me laugh.

After that my mom found it necessary to purchase 8 pumpkins of varying sizes and colours. My dad and I had to wait while she pumpkin shopped. We aren't clear as to why she needed 8 pumpkins but now they are spread around our house. She even bought a white one that she is endlessly intrigued by.

Then they stuck me in that damned car seat. I cried and cried and made my mom sit in the back with me. She tried to comfort me and I bit her finger-HARD. She made a funny sound and said "ouch". Kind of like the toy that I kick-it talks too. I wanted to make it clear that I would prefer to sit on her lap and bounce. She has this great brown stuff attached to her head that is SO MUCH FUN to pull. She also says "ouch" when I give it a tug.

We are home now and mom and I are both sick. She asked me to sleep nice tonight and I thought "HA! Just you wait for my pre-planned wakeup calls".

Keep it up Cade! Your Mom is far too young and good looking. I want to see some wrinkles and grey hairs and I think you are just the dude to bring those on :)

Cade, I think the car ride was worth it just to get those pictures, especially the really great one of you and your mom. And hey...give your poor mom a break and let her sleep a little, okay?! A white pumpkin is rather intriguing!!!
