pumpkin patch fail

9 Nov
All I wanted were a few cute pumpkin patch pictures.
Is that too much to ask?
Apparently my charming children thought so.
They were bound and determined not to look my way.
It was like they had plotted before we even got to the pumpkin patch,
“Ok, here’s the plan: if mommy calls your name, look away.
Anywhere is fine, as long as it’s not at her!”
“Like this?”
“How ’bout this?”
“Yep, that’s great! Looking down is always good too!”
(Man, is she gonna be frustrated, or what?)
“Uh oh. There’s that look. We better cooperate or bad things might happen…”
“Sucker…you fell for the ‘ugly face’?
I’m still not looking!”
“I’ll just pretend to be distracted by this pumpkin stem.”
Oh well.
There’s always next year, right?
And adding a 7 month old to the mix is bound to make it easier…or not.
