Saturday afternoon we took a trip as a family to our favorite pumpkin patch at our local Plant Farm. It is the perfect place to go with the little ones. The pumpkins are all strewn out in a grassy field so you don't really have to worry about muddy boots which I love in this wet climate. They have a cute little train ride, hayrides, farm animals, and wooden cutouts to stick your head in for picture taking, and its all free! You just have to pay for your pumpkin. And concessions if you want. It's really reasonable too. For the kids their pumpkin costs about $3-$4 a piece. The large ones are $7. So not bad at all.
We got their just in time too. It started to rain when we were leaving and it was COLD! It started to hail when we got home. Brrrrr. But it was worth it. The kids loved it and it gave us a chance to get a nice family picture. Although I wish I had asked the girl on the hayride to retake it since Emma's granola bar wrapper ended up in front of Ethan's face. Oh well...
I tried to get a good shot of the kids with the pumpkins in the background but every shot I took Emma was fixated on the animals she saw. And Kiera wasn't cooperating. This was the best one I got. You can tell Kiera was really excited to have her picture taken huh?
And here are a couple more pictures of the kids on the tractor at the entrance to the patch and another one of Emma and Daddy looking at the animals.
