Pumpkin Patch

When my mom decided she wanted to come visit this fall, she asked if she could come and go to the pumpkin patch with us. So we skipped the annual pumpkin patch trip with the homeschool group and waited to go with Gramie. We had planned to go Halloween day since Eddie was taking that Friday off anyway, but it was scheduled to rain on Friday so we went Thursday instead and Daddy missed out this year.

We went to our favorite place, Sauvie Island Farms, and a fun few hours. We had a hayride around the farm, the kids did the hay maze and kiddie corn maze, Gramie and the kids climbed a huge hay pyramid, we petted a calf, and looked at a dozen other animals, and of course, we picked pumpkins.

Abby's favorite activity was either petting and looking at the animals or rolling down the hay pyramid (she couldn't decide), and Ryan's favorite thing was by far playing on the tractors. What can I say? He's a boy, and that's what he likes.

The farm is pretty good size, so Ryan pulled the wagon all over the pumpkin fields looking for just the right pumpkin. Abigial chose a huge Cinderella pumpkin and carried it across the field to the wagon! We usually tell them they can have any pumpkin they can carry to the cashier, but I had mercy on them this year and allowed them to use the wagon.

Great posts! The pics are wonderful! You've been busy and how fun that you got away. The ball game thing makes me so angry. I can't stand things like that, however it has been going on for a long time. Its hard not to tell some of those guys off! Glad Ryan recovered. Poor little guy!
