a bunny in the headlights
sophie bunny took a class trip to the petting zoo/pumpkin patch at the sass family farm in riverside...and she loved it! we heard about patch pumpkin patch pumpkin patch pumpkin every waking minute of every single day until we were worn down and agreed to take her back there--but it was a lot of fun for all of us (especially seeing how much she loved it). the haunted house was a little too scary for her, but she made it through. it was a little too scary for gus, too, but he insisted on going through it again to get over it. rich even won a pumpkin while we were there (though since we've been beswined i haven't gone back to get it yet); he guessed its weight correctly. it's feelin' mighty halloweeny!
sophie definitely not convinced this place is safe (it certainly smelled evil)

then she decided to hell with this and did the hay bale maze the way she thought it should be done
and then taught the rest of the class how to do it right
on to the petting zoo! sophie loved the chickens
and feeding the goats
and petting a quail
and petting a bunny named chocolate
and trying to be a dino

it was pretty cute
sophie almost gets left behind...
hooray for sophie pumpkinhead...the field trip is over and sophie garnered a sweet souvenir
72 hours later: back to the farm with gus and daddy! sophie on the horsie swing
and see-saw with gus
and swing, again, with gus
too many things to do on the farm!

sophie was really trying to play dead...
...but gus was the most convincing
