Family Fun: Visiting a Pumpkin Patch

It’s my favorite time of year!  We loaded the family up in the van and went to Oliver’s first official pumpkin patch.  We went to a local farm that had a variety of activity for the kiddos to enjoy.  There were little hay bale and corn mazes, a variety of farm animals to feed, a hay ride, and living crops of cotton, soybeans, and pumpkins to harvest. 

Our little pumpkin is 2 1/2 feet tall!  Meanwhile, I looked like I swallowed a pumpkin for breakfast.  I’m glad my hubby was with us, because at 33 weeks pregnant I was hard-pressed to keep up with an energetic toddler.

I grabbed some grass in the shade and let the men-folk go a-pumpkin-pickin’ for the fam.  Oliver was adorable.  He wanted to stop and try to pick up every pumpkin that he saw.  He rolled the big ones around a bit until he found one just his size.

He carried it all the way back to me and was just thrilled with his find.  I sent him back for more…

He picked a tiny little one and proceeded to try to eat it like an apple for the rest of the afternoon.  It’s sitting on our front porch right now with his little buck-teeth marks all over it.  :-)

We finished up after almost 3 hours of wandering around and having fun.  We bagged a total of 7 pumpkins to carve up for Halloween.  The entrance fee was $24 for the adults.  I think it was a fair price for what we got out of the trip.  Oliver was plum tuckered out and fell asleep within 3 minutes of leaving the farm.  He slept good that night!
