The day was very warm, not a bit "fallish", but we wanted to take the boys somewhere that they could run around outside and get a little dirty. As usual, Levi took the lead and Liam hung back, taking it all in. At first. Then a not-so-usual thing happened. Liam became the explorer and Levi became more of an observer.
The boys did a pretty good job with letting me take a few staged pictures. Levi wondered where the pumpkin went. Liam thought it great fun make the pumpkin roll around with his bum.
Grandpa was vigilant about watching the boys so that they wouldn't wander off into the high weeds and corn. Levi was perfectly content to be carried or to hold Grandpa's hand. Liam, not so much. He wanted to go, go, go!
After we got back to the pumpkin stand, the boys were pretty tentative about touching things for about, oh, 15 seconds. I love Levi's face in the picture of him after he snatched a gourd from a basket. It is his "I'm pretty sure I am not supposed to do this, but I'm gonna because it is fun!"
At first the wheelbarrow ride wasn't their favorite but once Liam figured out that they could go fast, he loved it. Just look at the happiness on his face...
We fully expected the boys to get dirty and they did not disappoint. Levi did a face-plant in the parking lot so his face should have been much dirtier than Liam's but as the pictures show, that was not the case...
We had great fun with the boys that afternoon. I'm not sure that Mommy had all that much fun cleaning them up afterwards, though. I just love being a Grandma!
