The Pumpkin Farm


On Thanksgiving Monday, my nieces and their parents decided to go to a local pumpkin farm, and they asked us to come along. I'm glad they did, because we all had a lot of fun (and we would have sat on our butts at home otherwise).

Always nice to see my boy with a smile on his face. I'm sure that smile had something to do with the extra day off from school.



Here's my younger niece (left) with my daughter.


Come on. How cute is this hairdo? This dude is stylin'.



Here's my son and my older niece, pondering whether any animal would actually eat a half-rotten onion. I think he ended up throwing it aside.




This guy was mean. He chased away the other animals whenever someone poked food through the fence. He even put the horns to the back end of one of them. Bully.


I love this way of re-using old buses. I want one for my yard. Kind of. Not really.




My sister-in-law and her hubby.



My husband said I couldn't use this photo for the blog. Good luck with that.

  2. I have not been to the pumpkin patch this year because we usually get our pumpkins from the local farmers market. It looks like everyone had a great time though!

    1. Hi Amanda, We actually didn't even end up getting our pumpkins there, because it was expensive. But, we enjoyed seeing the animals.

  3. This looks like a really nice place. The animals are gorgeous! And the picture of your husband as a cob of corn? Priceless. You're a brave lady putting it up ... I have been forbidden from posting the best picture of my husband ever. He is hanging in a tree and the look on his face is so funny. But I have been denied permission to use it on my blog, and I have to listen because he has access to far too many pictures of me that I really don't want him getting his revenge with!

    1. It is indeed a nice place. My husband rarely looks at the blog, so he won't see the picture. ;) If someone tells him, I'll tell him it's his punishment for not reading my blog. :)

  7. The photo of your husband in the corn-awesome, lol.

    I am hoping to take Ruby to a pumpkin patch this weekend. We went last year when she was 10-months old. She had fun then, walking amongst the giant pumpkins, so I imagine she'd have way more fun now!

    1. I think Ruby is the perfect age for the pumpkin patch. Although, I still love it now!
