Day 23: Better Late Than Never

We hit the local pumpkin patch/bouncy castle place yesterday.  What is it with this phenomenon of bouncy castles accompanying the selling of pumpkins?  I don't think I'd ever seen it before we moved here, but it may just be that we'd never seen it before because we didn't have a child that it would apply to.  


Samantha picked out two pumpkins, between crying fits.  All was fine until someone bounced on her, of course, then once she'd pulled herself together from that and allowed herself to have fun again, running back and forth through corrugated plastic tunnels, some over-enthusiastic children began to scream their excitement as loud as they could, the sound echoing and amplifying through the enclosure.  Poor, sensitive little Sammi just stood outside the tunnel bawling her eyes out until I could pick her up and get her out of earshot. 

 

Here she is going down a bouncy slide on her stomach.  I just would like to point out the beautiful new grown-up teeth that are almost all the way in at the bottom front!  I'm pretty excited about the fact that my brave girl has now lost two teeth, and had two new ones come in, all without spending more than a week or two with any sort of gap.  Let's see if we're as lucky with the next batch. 

By the way, does anyone know if teeth will ordinarily fall out in the same order they grew in?  So far we're on that schedule, but who knows what's next?

Great photos. Glad she did well. We did the bouncy house at VBS finale- they cleared it out for Grace to jump on her own for a few mins. Was so sweet. Love those braids- wish we didnt have to be so careful about flyaways- ticking the nose and face causing her to rub and loose a contact. She is just so beautiful. radiant.

I was thinking the same thing today about the bounce house/pumpkin patch thing. I do not recall this being the norm where I grew up, but bounce houses accompany everything in FL

Love these pictures! We, too, have the pumpkins and bounce houses side by side!

Beautiful photos? And which pumpkin patch is that? We drove out (as you saw) to Cox Farms, without me realizing that it has become insane, of Disney-ish proportions! But wherever you are looks fun.

And not sure what's up with the bounce house as part of pumpkin selection. We still have a couple years...

I was in the tunnels with my daughter and nieces when some other kid shrieked repeatedly. My girls freaked out, I just wanted to punch the other one. Ugh!
