Pumpkin Patch

Sunday, was just as beautiful as Saturday but I couldn't talk the family into another 5+ mile hike.  We decided instead, to go to the pumpkin patch.  There are several in our area.  The one we chose is probably the busiest one in town.  We got lucky and found parking pretty soon after we arrived.  The kids wanted to start out with the giant hay bail.  The climbed and crawled and had great fun.  Next was a hay maze.  At the end of the maze Bekah just casually asks me for a baby wipe and begins to clean her finger to check her BG.  45!  That is the lowest low we have seen.  We went to visit the animals after she ate her fast acting carbs while we waited to get her BG back in range.  I had expected it the day before but was not as prepared to see a low number that day.  Her BG came right back up and stayed good for the rest of the day.  We got lost for close to an hour in the corn maze.  (Score one for mom, sneaking in the exercise when they weren't expecting it)  We took a hay ride out to the pumpkins once we got free.  David was so cute, wanting to pick up every pumpkin.  He finally found one he could pick up and was oh so proud!  Enjoy the pics:
