Scenes from the Pumpkin Patch

My girls look forward to our pumpkin patch time every Fall. We have several great pumpkin patches in our area, but our favorite has free admission on the weekdays...making it the perfect spot for pumpkin picking. Michaela Byrd and I visited one morning earlier this month with our MOPS group. We had so much fun we went back over the weekend with Natalie, my mom, and my sis and niece, who were visiting. While Michaela Byrd was convinced we'd see The Great Pumpkin (too much Charlie Brown, perhaps?), we did see loads of pumpkins, fun farm stuff, animals, and some great Fall vignettes. Here are some Scenes from the Pumpkin Patch.

I just love the sight of lumpy Fall gourds, mounds of corn, fresh apples, and bright orange pumpkins.

The animals are always a big draw for pumpkin patch visitors:

It's not a trip to the farm without a hayride and a look at the scenery!

And the grand finale, the choosing of the pumpkins...

Some people go for the "cleanest" pumpkin they can find:

Others hunt for the absolute largest thing they can possibly carry and then hand it off to their mom to lug to the car:

We certainly had our fill of Fall fun over those two trips!

What beautiful pictures! Fall most certainly has come to your area. I'm a bit jealous... No leaves changing or cool temps here in SE Texas. :(

This looks like a wonderful place to take the kids. If I had been there, I would have gone nuts buying pumpkins and gourds.

There's no such thing as too much Charlie Brown! Good grief!!

Beautiful pics, as always, but that photo of Michaela Byrd and your niece is just absolutely beautiful. Did you take that?

As for Natalie, she looks so grown-up! Oh my word.

I miss going to pumpkin patches! Maybe I should organize a field trips of my friends whose kids are older!

How fun! I love these pictures because I love looking at pictures of me and my brother at the pumpkin patch from when we were little. Such precious memories. The girl's bows are always so cute.
