Pumpkin Patch

We made our annual trip to our local Pumpkin Patch shortly before Halloween.  It was unseasonable warm which was nice, but it didn’t feel like a good fall pumpkin patch visit.  We had a great time though. 


This year they had some of their animals at the end of the covered area where the pumpkins are.  They were very calm animals that seemed to tolerate all of the attention.  Gavin loved the goats and Mikayla was mostly intrigued with the cow.


Mikayla cooperated quite nicely with letting me take a “pumpkin” picture….Gavin, yeah, not so much. Smile


We went on the hayride around the farm – the kids always love this activity.


I just love these two little people!


About half way through the hayride, the let you stop at their pond that is full of very big catfish.  They have food that you can give them which just brings the catfish all around the dock.  There is definitely no question as to what makes those catfish so big – they probably get fed about 20 times a day!  IMG_0844

See! They do love each other!

I always love these opportunities that we have to go on a fun family outing.  With our busy schedules, it doesn’t happen as often as I would like.  That just makes me appreciate these moments that much more.
