This weekend grandma, Laura, and Israel came with us to Shiltin's pumpkin patch near Lacey. Steve had a coaching clinic all weekend and couldn't join us, but we did bring our very own giraffe. :) Her costume was warm and toasty, perfect for the fall weather. Bianca loved the petting farm and wanted to visit again and again. One of Bianca's best buddies, my brother's cat Rascal, came from Shiltin's years ago--John fell in love with the kitten at the petting farm, and they said he could take it after the weekend (this was probably ten years ago). So the kittens at the farm may be Rascal's distant relatives. Bianca wasn't in her best mood, still feeling some aftermath from her cold/flu bug, but we had a good time. Oh, and our front porch is now loaded with pumpkins!
