Picking Pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch

It’s pumpkin picking time again!  We took the little ones to the same pumpkin patch as last year for some fall fun. 

Last year, Evelyn was a few weeks away from making her grand debut and Oliver was my “baby” at 16 months.  Now he is all grown up and Evelyn is footloose and fancy free.

Our first stop was at the corn crib.  They filled this enclosure with about 2 feet of corn kernels.  I jumped in with the kids and it was pretty wild!  I bet it would be awesome to sleep on.  Corn kernel mattresses.  Hmmm…maybe we should market that. 

Second stop was a visit with the goats. 

Oliver always loves looking at the animals.

Evelyn didn’t know what to make of it.  A bear that walks and make noises?

Daddy and Oliver scoured the patch for some choice pumpkins.

We made a game of it and Oliver found quite a few.  Actually, Oliver’s game was chucking the pumpkins through the air, which we tried to “squash”.

Evelyn preferred to crawl over the picked pumpkins herself.  We picked a couple tiny ones for her and she proceeded to eat them like her brother did the year before. 

It was a beautiful day to be outdoors.  A hayride and corn maze later and we were ready to head home with our squash.  We have our annual pumpkin carving party this upcoming weekend. 

I am glad we spent the time out instead of in packing up our house.  I feel like we need to get the “lasts” out of our system before we move.  The last time for this…the last time for that…  I want to close these chapters before we start the new ones.
