Pumpkin Patch: Take Two

Remember a few weeks ago when I had the great pumpkin patch fail of 2011? Well, I figured with the month coming to an end we better hurry up and remedy the situation.

So yesterday (right after the hubster returned home with a pumpkin spice latte for yours truly) we headed out to a cute little pumpkin patch for the afternoon and definitely had better luck this time around. I mean, there were actually pumpkins – so that right there was 100% better.

Part way through our visit we ran into Eva’s buddy Lyla from church. We confused the heck out of the kids by making them sit on a pile of squash and attempted to get a good picture of them. Well, we failed. At least in the 15 shots I had, we didn’t have a good one. Then we went on a hay ride on the tractor. Evalyn thought this was nothing short of amazing since she is all about tractors lately. As soon as she saw it coming around the corner to pick us up she started pointing and yelling, “Tacta tacta”. She sat still on her daddy’s lap and pointed at the trees and other kids the whole time.

We saw the animals in the barn – a cow, a goat, some pigs, some chickens and some other gross looking birds – and she quickly discovered that cows? WAY scarier in real life than in her animal books.

We took a (quick) stroll through the corn maze but the amount of mud quickly deterred us so we spent the rest of the time snapping photos and checking out all the different kinds of squash and pumpkins that they had kickin’ around. Or, should I say, all the “apples” that were everywhere.

Middle photo? “Wait, you are trying to tell me that this is not an apple?”

My very favourite is that even in the photos were you can’t see her face, you can still see her lips enough to be able to tell that she’s in the middle of saying “Oh” or “apple”. She was more than excited when she finally found a tiny apple pumpkin that was just her size. I kept trying to lead her back to the big pile of pumpkins to get some pics but she was determined to carry this one around.

It was the most beautiful fall day to spend at the pumpkin patch with my little family. So long pumpkin patch, see you in 2012!
