Pumpkin Patch

I think we picked the coldest day of the month to go to the Pumpkin Patch this year. It was the only day we could do it, so we bundled up and headed out. The temperature was highs in the 40s, and the wind was blowing so hard. But, was had a fabulous time.

The kids love to play on the wooden train in front of the barn.

Out in the patch, most of the pumpkins were still on the vine. The ones we picked, I had to tear off the vine. A pocket knife would have come in handy.

C's favorite thing is the straw maze. Its small and dark, and located in a greenhouse, so typically warmer than anything else. He kept begging to go.

K loved the animals. No feeding them this year, but she was not afraid to talk to , pet, or touch all of them.
E hung out in the backpack with Dad the whole time. He was a real trooper and only got upset on the hayride. I think it was because the wind was blowing in his face (Dad had been blocking it for him before that).

I love this picture. Its on the hay ride back after getting our pumpkins. The kids were ecstatic to be able to pick some really great ones this year.
