Max wasn't so sure at first, and then he knocked over the bowl of pumpkin guts. As you can see he thought he did something wrong, I of course laughed and took a picture...then he was happy to play.
Wesley really wanted nothing to do with carving pumpkins. But once he saw Max having fun, he decided to join in and then there was no stopping him...he really truly did start to have fun.

So, when I mention we planned to have a good time, I should reference that with the fact that Wesley was not happy about putting on his costume. He kicked and screamed and tried to get away from me. And being the good Mom that I am, I held him down and put the costume on him anyway because we were going to have fun.
Still part of the parade...notice the wet marks on Wesley's cape and pants. He loved playing in the rain...it did not seem to slow any of the children down last night.
Getting ready for the candy...apparently the best part of the night in the kids opinion.
Wesley would rarely say "Trick or Treat" but he did say please and as he got braver...well then he just would reach into the bowls and help himself to whatever he felt like taking.
Max managed to stay dry but he so wanted to get down and play with the rest of the kids in the rain and puddles.
Picture of Max's Mighty Max cape (he is trying to get to the bath tub and does not want to stop for pictures).

Max and Mommy on the hay ride. Please note that this is the last time that we saw him happy on this little adventure. After this picture he started crying and did not stop until we had returned to the place where we paid for our pumpkins. And when I say cry, I mean full blown squealing temper tantrum and all because he wanted a nap.
Wesley holding his pumpkin...the rule was that he had to be able to carry it himself (in order to get the super cheap price). This is the only picture from the pumpkin field because Greg was in charge of the camera and with Max in melt down mode, I was rushing them through the selection process.Max finally settled down, really I think he just gave up. Poor kid, next year we will not be making this trip without naps. These last two are my favorites...Greg got us a wheelbarrow to get the pumpkins to the car. Wesley loved riding in it with three pumpkins...Max got a free one just for being with us and Greg was able to pick a huge one...Again, he just had to be able to carry it from the field to claim the great prices.

Sorry there is not a new picture...Max has been sick with a fever and in no mood for a picture session. But of course there will be new pictures at a future time. Maybe a video of him walking when he really takes off :o)
