|Marketing genius: don't just sell pumpkins. The owners of this patch also had stands to sell other treats as well as lots of old wagons and other photo props. Business was definitely booming for them!|
|Oh, my! Look at all these... um... round, orange things!|
|Well, Mama and Baba said I should pick one.|
|Taking a moment to dance. She did that quite often during the day.|
|Wow! Don't think I can pick this one up, but I'll try!|
The following day, we met a friend and her two boys at a local amusement park. This was Caroline's first experience with a "cow train." It... might have gone better...
|Um... OK. Not too sure about this. I'm strapped down in this thing. But at least Mama and Baba are standing right there, so I guess everything's cool.|
|And we're off! As you see, the "train" was nothing spectacular, but it and other things around the park provided lots of cheap entertainment. Again, marketing genius!|
Caroline, unfortunately, was less interested in appreciating the genius and more interested in... um...
|GET ME OUTA HEEEEERRRRRRREEEEEE!!!!!|
In all, quite a nice weekend.
(*) I refer to those of us ol' timers who can remember such things as:
(A) Putting a large, black plastic disk onto a device to listen to music
(B) Shoving a large magnetic tape cassette into another device to watch a movie
(C) Talking on a phone connected by an actual wire into the wall
(D) Taking film to be developed and putting prints into an envelope to mail them to loved ones so they could see themHow times have changed!
