On Saturday, we took Aidan to his first pumpkin patch. Needless to say him slept through 98% of the experience. He woke up just as we were going to the register to pay and only because he wanted to eat! He has slept through most of his firsts: first mall trip, first high school football game and first pumpkin picking adventure. But who cares because honestly it's all about the joy of experiencing these adventures for the first time with my son regardless if he is sleeping or awake. Because I remember it all!
My fiancee and I are quite the "October" freaks. We even might go to another pumpkin patch this weekend. Maybe Aidan will be awake for some of this trip. I am looking forward to the day his face lights up as we pull up to the pumpkin patch. The day he can feed the animals and giggle as they slobber there food down. The day we can ride the hayride together. The day he runs through the pumpkin patch choosing his first pumpkin all on his own like a big boy. The day his clothes and hands are stained from painting his pumpkin.
But what I look forward to the most is October 31, 2014 when he walks down the aisle as mommy and daddy get married!!
