Pumpkin Patch Day!

I love love love the pumpkin patch! Maybe it's because I like orange. Maybe it's because I like the coolness of fall. Maybe it's that going to the pumpkin patch is a tradition we have not missed in 8 years. Maybe it's because we spend a day together doing something really fun and seasonal. Actually, it's probably a bit off all of the above.

We had a great time this year as usual. The only problem was that it has rained so much that everything was muddy. Mud is dirty. And it smells bad. And it gets on everything. And standing water in a pumpkin field does not do good things for pumpkins. Yuck! Fortunately, the farm had harvested a whole bunch of pumpkins and stored them in a barn full of dry straw. So even though we didn't get any pumpkins in the field. we were able to bring home some nice pumpkins from the barn. A picture speaks 1000 words, so without further ado, here are 7000 words!

What a fun filled family day you had! The pictures were so cute, especially the last one with Pepper leaning against the wagon.

I took my kids to the pumpkin patch last week and we had a terrific time as well. Interesting to read the pumpkins where you are had issues too...the ones here in the Washington were green or rotting. So I didn't buy any, instead we purchased three gourds that were really cute. I guess the weather this year was not good for pumpkins all around.
