The Griswolds go to the Pumpkin Patch.

We took a road trip to Missouri over the weekend and we hit a super fun pumpkin patch while we were there.

A good 3 of our 4.5 hour drive consisted of this.


I'm not so sure our family is normal.


I wish the sun hadn't been quite so bright because it made picture taking a challenge. But we couldn't have asked for better weather.

The scenery was gorgeous!


Such a daddy's boy.


The cousins having a picnic lunch.


Jumping off of hay bales.


"Seriously mom? Another picture?" So normal.


I'm not sure what this body contortion thing is that she's doing. Maybe that's normal for 8 yr olds?


Playing on the tractors.




Yet another member of the not-so-normal family. (my brother)


Sassafrass.


The drive home. His headpiece was a work of art made of pipe cleaners. Normal? You tell me.


All of this, and would you believe we didn't even get a pumpkin?! Oy. It was a crazy fun day and I was reminded that we don't need to be "normal". Normal is for wimps.

(I'll add more pictures over on Desperately Avoiding Housework later today.)

Our pumpkins that we carved a week or two ago are now rotting on our front porch. Gross.

Normal is way overrated.
