David had a 'no-school' day, perfectly timed to join Lily for her school field trip to the pumpkin patch. After all, she had the chance to go with him on his field trips to the same patch for the past two years... too bad grandma and grandad were not here this year like last. David enjoyed getting his own pumpkin and a Happy Meal at McDonald's afterwards. So much so, that he declared this as "the best day ever". This afternoon the cousins came to the house to spend the day and sleep over tonight.... that was part of why he knew it was going to be a "best day".
