FFF - Pumpkin Patch

Sarah, you must have been reading my mind! I've been meaning to post pumpkin patch pics for a couple of weeks now and haven't got it done - thanks for making it this weeks FFF theme so I finally had the motivation to get it done :) Check out more FFF posts here (not a direct link I'm not really here so I'm posting ahead).

The pumpkins were finally ready - woohoo (we had a wet summer, it took them awhile to ripen so our first trip got cancelled). We debated on which farm to go to, but we liked that you were able to actually cut your pumpkins from the vine and that it was Christian based - awesome, go God!!

Not one super good group photo the whole time -
this is one of the "best"
Cousin Cayman, Cousin Hope & Riley


The weather was gorgeous and the kids were.....kids. We took Riley and two cousins, Hope & Cayman, with us and the three of them had a great time on the way down there. There was not an inch to spare between their seats in the back of our Vue and Joey nearly had a melt-down but that's beside the point :) He has decided though - he's not opening a day care facility anytime soon hehehe.
This place was so cool - they had a teepee, a little train ride thing, a sand box, a hayride to the patch, a 4 acre Pumpkin Patch where you could wander until you found the perfect pumpkin and then really cut it from the vine, a scarecrow contest, lots of room to run, and a corn maze (that had a short version and a long version - they must have kids because that is the smartest thing ever, especially when the kids are leading the way).

Did I mention they had snacks too? That made this girls day!

And this girl, she melts my heart!

You did get a good shot... maybe just one and it is not perfect, but it is true. I think it is a wonderful picture. I know you also took away many good memories.

I hope you are looking for a sincere pumpkin. We always do after watching Peanuts Halloween. Consider yourself lucky if you walk away with only pumpkins and no Beagle.

I love the pictures in your next post (or really your previous post) too. What a cutie.
