It's pumpkin time!!

We went to the pumpkin patch. We did it a little different this year, asking friends to tag along. Since they don't have kids to use as an excuse to go, they were happy to accompany us.

Here we are, at the beginning.
and on the 'hayrack' ride to the pumpkin patch.
Loved the use of the old satelite dishes.
the race to find the perfect pumpkin.
My daughter found hers quick. Then she decided she like mine better, so we traded. Then DH said mine was bigger, so we traded back.
We were a little dissapointed in teh set up. In previous years, we went to the actaul field and got to pick them from the vines. Now they are just randomly placed around.
Can you pick my kids from the scarecrows?

Now we're discussing what to do next.
The petting zoo won.
The ride back, on Scarecrow Lane
Again, more use of the old satelite dishes.

The little kids maze that my son raced through. We decided not to the the real corn field maze, due to everyone's alergies.
Some cool looking flowers they were selling.

Next, we headed over to the house to start the carving party.
