Pumpkin Patch 

We are a 100% introvert household and with that comes days on end of staying in and focussing on personal projects. After a couple weeks of colds and staying in (okay, and a couple months before that) I get cabin fever and miss seeing friends. 

Friends were meeting up at the pumpkin patch and I wanted to join, making the kids go. Mean mom! 

All three boys made me pay for it with sullen faces, but after a boat ride, a train ride, a corn maze, Pet Shop Boys jamming in the car, FroYo, and halloween prep shopping, they came home bubbling with joy from a good time. 

So, I don’t know what to think. My suspicion is that my introvert kids just need a push out the door sometimes. Now, if I could find a way to do it without the angst. 

Oh, and I wore my Where’s Waldo costume. Can you find Waldo in the corn maze? 

Depeche Mode Concert

Jason and I took the teens to a Depeche Mode concert and we all had such a great time! A concert of a lifetime for me. The opening band, Warpaint, was so good too.
