Pumpkin Carving and Corn Maze

Last night we carved our pumpkin for the year. I thought Jack would be more into it this year than he was last year. He was very excited about the idea of pumpkin carving, but he still thought it stunk and wanted nothing to do with digging out the seeds.
Jack ready to dig in. Before he realized what was inside.
Jack wanted his animals to pose for a picture.

Mr. Pumpkin, as Jack named him, glowing on our balcony.

Today we took a Gallery Church outing to Queens to the Queens County Farm Museum and enjoyed a day of fall festivities. We took the train down to Penn Stations to catch the Long Island Railroad this morning to head out of Manhattan.

Jack thought it was cool getting to meet a "real live" train conductor.
Lillie and Elliott wore their backpack/leashes for the first time today. Elliott didn't mind. Lillie didn't want you holding on to hers. They did like wearing backpacks though.
Looking at the petting zoo animals.

We went through a corn maze that was by far the best we've ever been in. Jack had a great time. Kim Mills stayed out with Lillie and Elliott while Freddy T., Jack, and I made our way through the maze.
Thumbs Up! Our little team was the first one out of the maze!
