I know what it's going to take to get my readers commenting again...regular posting! So here goes.
We went to the pumpkin patch this past weekend and it was great! At the recommendation of our friends, The Burkes, we went to Brookdale Farm in Chesapeake. This place is the real deal, you actually pick your own pumpkin right from the vine. Very cool.
Pulling the wagon for the pumpkins!
Carefully inspecting each pumpkin...
He was not pleased when I told him we had to wait.
On to the haystack!
One of Parks' greatest delights...corn hole!!
Every time he put the beanbag in he would smile and clap for himself.
Our trip to Brookdale was great..but the next day, Parks developed a terrible case of hives! Neither myself or Jackson have ever had hives or been around it so we were very disturbed by it and kind of scared. We didn't know it was hives it just looked like a terrible scary rash that was spreading all over his body. We went to the ER (it was a Sunday) to make sure it wasn't some kind of serious rash and we were told it was a yeast infection. ER = FAIL. Unless you are truly dying they don't really care what you have. Which I can understand but it was kind of annoying. My mother's intuition told me this was NOT a yeast infection. Turns out we think he had an allergic reaction to the hay! My pediatrician just said it's either an allergic reaction to hay or just a case of viral hives. We won't know unless we re-expose him to hay and it happens again...greeeaat. Anyone else have a hay allergy?
