Pumpkin Patch Kid
While I was cleaning house in preparation for a dinner party (the floors have been washed, the carpets vacuumed, and the dust bunnies collected), Go-Daddy-O and Ella went to Steveston to meet friends at a pumpkin patch. When they arrived, there was an hour-long lineup. And admission was $7 per head, with no discount for the kids. Crazy!
Go-Daddy-O has zero tolerance for standing in long lines, or for paying a fee to enter what he calls "the equivalent of a Christmas tree lot," so he took Ella to a playground instead and then found a FREE pumpkin patch. They bought one really big pumpkin, and two tiny ones--one for us, and one for Hana.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored the Milk Factory team in the Run for the Cure. We raised over $2000! I've posted some pictures from the Run here, along with a memorable Ella-story:
