Pumpkin Patch

Finally the pumpkin patch pictures! Everything was put on hold for a bit, but here are the pictures from Kari's preschool pumpkin patch field trip. Noah and I went with her class.

Kirsten, Jenni and Kari look at some large pumpkins.

Our tour guide, Teresa, explains to us about
the different types of pumpkins and gourds.

Noah was so happy to be with his sister.

Noah loved smelling the mums.

Teresa let the kiddos pick a gourd to touch.

Kari picked a bumpy one!

Kari loved seeing the pumpkins painted like
different characters.....

.....especially the Little Einstein ones!

Noah liked chasing the farmhouse cat.

He never did catch him, though.

The tractor Noah insisted on climbing on!

Cotton is grown on the farm.

Along with peanuts!

The horse named Ginger.

This chicken laid some brown eggs that morning.

The geese were so noisy and honked louder
than Teresa could talk!

Tom Turkey is protecting his girls.

These kids had a sign above their pen that said
"Like to Head Butt".

Kari and Noah got to go right into the field and
pick their pumpkins!

Noah's was still on the vine!

A group photo before the hayride.

Kari, Bryleigh and PJ on the hayride.

We had a fabulous time and would love to go again before it becomes a Christmas tree lot!

Wow, I didn't know they had animals there too! Great photos! Since that's usually where we get our pumpkins, we'll probably end up there tonight just in time to find a pumpkin to carve for Halloween. If Noah wants to catch a cat, he can come to my house anytime and probably catch ours!


I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
