Pumpkin Patch

We had another great, low-key weekend at home! We're thankful for it since we'll be traveling for 2-3 weeks after this weekend. Today we joined our good friends, John and Amy and their two children at Old Baker Farm in Harpersville. It was a gorgeous day - clear blue sky and warm weather - for a visit to the pumpkin patch. Catherine Ellis is starting to notice more and more her surroundings and she loves being outside, so it was a fun activity for us all.

Here we are in the field getting ready for our adventure:

There were hundreds of people with their children there, so it was mass chaos but lots of fun to watch all the children go through the various activities. They had a hay maze, which we weren't old enough to enjoy, but did take a rare family photo (I'm usually not in the photos since I'm the one taking them!):

We did the hayride next and that was a hit! The hayride led us to the pumpkin patch where there were hundreds of pumpkins to pick from (we were told with all the rain and coyotes - they like pumpkins apparently - they had to buy them and bring them in). We got two great pumpkins, one large, one small and Catherine Ellis had a great time climbing on them!

And the 'what is this' exploratory fun starts:

Hum, what is this?

Let's eat it....seems yummy

Yay! This is fun...

Silly girl

She's getting big enough to ride David's shoulders and she LOVES it! Here are a few snapshots from her high in the sky!

This is SO much fun

Seriously Daddy, we should do this more often

Mommy, you sure are missing out!

Another fabulous weekend with those we love! Hope your week is off to a great start! Check back here mid-week for some more Halloween fun!

Happy Fall Ya'll!
