Ya'll are so lucky. Seriously- I have seen so many great authentic Pumpkin Patches around the country over the past few days and I am jealous!! Here in Texas, we pile a bunch of pumpkins together in a parking lot and call it a "patch"!
Ok, it's not that bad, but it's certainly not on a farm with rolling hills and beautifully colored trees in the background. I managed to find a local nursery that was having a fall festival on Saturday, so I piled the kids up and off we went. So the visit is more for mom to get the obligatory fall pictures of the kids, but you'll see in the following pictures that the kids had fun!First, we had a gourd hunt- similar to an Easter Egg hunt, but you search for gourds. My kids managed to find a few, but there were families that hogged them all up. Seriously? What are you going to do with 30 tiny gourds? Save some for the rest of us!! Oh well, kids enjoyed it? Check!
Next, we have a hay ride. So what if it goes down an alley and back again. Do we have a tractor and some hay? Yep! Kids enjoyed it? Check!
Now, for picture time- little bubba just wasn't in the mood- no smiles from him, but he still looks precious. Kids enjoyed this one? Not so much, but they are a patient bunch when it come to me taking pictures.
Lastly, Daddy helps the kiddos carve and does an excellent job on getting exactly what Jack wanted...a skull and crossbones!!
Happy Fall Ya'll
