Pumpkin patch fun

Friday was a great fall day.  It was overcast and slightly cool and so we headed out to go to a local pumpkin patch/orchard.  I found this train of thought funny considering we just bought a farm/orchard, but my kids do not think our farm is any fun without all the animals around.  Plus, they think it's just no fun to go and do farm work when you are suppose to be having fun picking a pumpkin.

Okay….noted.

But this pumpkin patch, well, it was a bonanza of fun.  They had, of course, a corn maze, pumpkin patch, all the farm animals you could think of, as well as a giant slide, go-carts, and everything else in-between.  The kids had a splendid time and I have to admit, so did I.

In the back of my mind though, I was thinking.  (My husband always says that's trouble…)  Wouldn't a pumpkin patch be a fun thing to create and run?  There were shouts of "Yes" and an emphatic "No" from our oldest girl in the car ride home when I asked the kids.  (I don't think the oldest wants to share her animals)

Later that evening, I ran it past my husband to which he said "you haven't even grown a pumpkin….ever."

Okay….again, noted.

Hmmmm….might be an issue.

Well anyway, enjoy our pumpkin patch fun in pictures.




  

Oh yes we did….put my mother on the giant slide.  Heh, heh, heh.

Is it wrong that I find the girl in the front face planting funny?




My teenage son missed out on all the fun this day.  He played the "Mom, don't be ridiculous I'm too old to go" card.  Teenagers…..Nuff, said.
