Today we had the best day. We got up early (well, relatively speaking for a Sunday morning), picked up my dad, and headed north to Horseshoe Bend to the Thunder Mountain Line for a trip to the pumpkin patch. There was a little nip in the air as we got on the train. We made our way through the dining and snack bar cars, and found our seat. It was a short ride, maybe 20 or 30 minutes one way. But it was pretty neat. We followed the Payette river to the pumpkin patch in Montour, ID. Here's C and her Boppa checking out the scenery.
Once we got there, C got to pick out her pumpkin. She picked out Jack's too, because, well, he didn't really have much of a preference. Here she is with the winner.
Here I am with the 2 best kids in the whole world. Seriously. Don't even try and dispute this fact, folks.
And then we got back on and headed back to the station. Jack has just started to suck his thumb in earnest. But the whole hand seemed like a good idea this time. However, he might be in for a bit of a surprise if he chomps down too hard...his first tooth broke through today!!
Later this week...knitting. Yes, knitting. Hard to believe, given this blog's name is "Knitting on Call". It feels like there's been a lot more "call" than "knitting" in my life lately, but I hope to rectify that soon.
