Pumpkin Patch - Part 2

We went to the pumpkin patch and it was a whole new experience with a 2 1/2 year old! Oh the joy he got out of the experience! Harrison keeps asking to go back but between the bad air quality and then getting sick, it hasn't been able to materialize into action.

But the day was not with out incident Harrison came away with a big speckled egg on his noggin and a pumpkin in hand; and he has shared his story with all whom will listen. It goes like this.

I got boo-boo, pumpkin patch!
Yees, Pumpkin patch!
Batman pushed me and I fell down.
Batman pushed me down, I hugged batman.
I went BOOM! (big hand motion here.)
I cried. Batman pushed me, I hugged batman.


Harrison and a 4-year-old dressed like Batman were standing on a bale of hay together. They each realized they didn't want to be up there together. After we told them not to use their hands, Harrison put his hands on the little boy's chest & was gently talking to him. The little boy took Harrison by the shoulders and "pushed him down" - not hard, not viciously, but enough that Harrison's little noggin made contact with the cement with a THUD. The boy's mother was horrified, and the boy said, "I didn't want him touching me!"
Harrison came up with quite a bump right away. After some time of crying, he felt better and the little boy apologized with "I just didn't want you touching me." and they gave each other a hug. When the little boy said "sorry" Harrison also said, "I sorry."

Harrison is still telling people how Batman pushed him down!

I LOVE the one where he's trying to pick up the white pumpkin. They just think they are so strong! It's awesome! :)
