Boo at the Zoo

We went to Boo at the Zoo today and had so much fun. Unfortunately, so did the rest of the Denver population! It was a beautiful, but very windy, 70 degrees today. I've never seen so many people at the zoo. As you can see, Christian was a ferocious tiger. I think he's a pretty cute little tiger.

The best part was crunching the leaves.

Dave, Christian and I went to pick a few pumpkins today from a local (but still 45min away) pumpkin patch. We were told that there are no pumpkin patches in CO where you can pick them from the field. I don't know if it's true, but I found that this was a better way to pick a pumpkin with a 1 yr old. We found the quality to be great and prices were reasonable. Everyone was so friendly and there were lots of other kids to play with too.

We thought Christian would love this corn box. Who wouldn't love playing in a hug box filled with corn? Well, he hated it. Maybe next year.

Christian loved these bumpy gourds. He thought they were balls that he could throw.

When Christian realized that he couldn't lift these big pumpkins (and believe me, he tried) he decided they were better chairs than balls anyway. So he climbed on all of them until he found just the right one. I couldn't have posed them better myself.

Here are the final 3 pumpkins that we decided to buy. Soon they will be gutted and carved for everyone's viewing pleasure. Dave is mostly excited to eat the seeds. I love fall and I love making memories. We can't wait for next year!
