Today Seth and I took the kids to Mazzotti Farms Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze in Hudson, Colorado. Tomorrow I will post pictures of the pumpkin patch and corn maze. Today's pictures are of the other farm attractions.Mazzotti Farms.
Gourds and baby pumpkins for sale. We did not buy any.
A really scary scarecrow.Teepee.
Inside the teepee, looking up.
James with a bunny.
Seth making friends with one of the farm dogs. The giant slide.
Ryan and James at the top of the giant slide.
Dog pile at the bottom!
James showing off for some little kids.
Tired from all the sliding.
While the kids were busy sliding, Seth and I wandered over to the "Petting Zoo."
Seth's hand petting a donkey.
Eventually the boys got tired of sliding and came over to see what we were doing. James went right to the little grey donkey in the first pen.

Today I attended a "Writing Celebration" presented by Miss Stark's fourth grade class. Each child read an essay he or she had written. This is Ryan's.Ryan refuses to believe this, but Seth was the one who put the ice cube in his bed. I do not understand why I am being blamed for that!
Last night two Ninjas and a Devil Thing headed out to Overland High School for the Night of Candy. Candy wrappers on the stairs--we must be headed in the right direction.
Still looking for the candy. Overland is BIG!October 2009
Running across the cafeteria in search of still more candy.
They found pumpkins instead!
Some of the high school students made them work for their treats. This is Ryan (aka Devil Thing) playing Pin the Stem on the Pumpkin.
James playing Pin the Stem on the Pumpkin. Wrong way, James!
After the games were over, James got involved in an art project.
Seth holding jackets and waiting patiently as James colors.
Ryan counting his candy as James colors.
"Look at all this sugar, Dada!"
Random dead high school students lying in the halls.
Random dressed up high school students giving out candy.
I like the way James is completely ignoring the scary tableau as he searches for more candy.
