Pumpkin Patch

Liz LuscombComment
It's that time of year folks, were we head over to a local farm, to get our fill of the fall festivities.  This year we attended the Flower Mound, TX Pumpkin Patch.  It is by far the best we've been to... so far.

This year though, it was hot.  As in, we should be wearing shorts and tank tops with sunscreen sort of hot.  At least to me, anyways.  84 degrees is cool to most people around here.

In fact, most people enjoy hot chocolate at the pumpkin patch, but in Texas, we do things a bit differently. 
We do snow cones.

No need to rub your eyes.  You read that right.  We ate snow cones in order to cool off. :)

I would like to say that this outing had no meltdowns, perfect photos, no crowds, and no bird poop, but then it wouldn't be a Luscomb family outing! Hahaha!

A little later...

We began our search for colored pumpkins.  I've been dying to have a white one to sit pretty-ly on our front porch.

The unthinkable happened.

A black crow circled above us and then dropped a butt bomb onto Bubba's back with a thud.  Bubba's hand immediately went to his back and smeared his hand deep in bird poo.

With his eye's bulging out of his head and the most disgusted and distraught face he asked me, "Nuh--UH!!!! Did a bird just crap on my back!!!?"

It is hard to see in the pictures, but on the right side of his shirt, he smeared the poop everywhere.  I had to quickly snap these pictures before he caught me.  It had just happened and he was pretty grumpy. Haha!

His reaction, guys...seriously made Nathan and I laugh so hard that we were both crying. However, Bubba did not find it too amusing, and I can't say that I blame him.  Although, for the record, he laughs about it now.

He wasn't digging this photo shoot.


Rori wasn't digging the photo shoot either.  This was the ONLY decent shot I took of her. 

This is probably why Bubba was pooped on.  There were a ton of  standing and hanging bird houses like these above.

Despite the bird poo incident, we had a blast.  It was so much fun for the kids, and if you live in this area, then I highly recommend visiting.  Did I mention that it is ALL FREE!?  All the kid jump houses, hay rides, etc. were all for FREE!  All you had to pay for was parking, $5, and of course if you purchased pumpkins.

Speaking of, here a couple of pics of the jump house.

He was so scared to bounce!  He just tip toed around once then came out.
It was crazy busy.
