the last time we made it to the pumpkin patch was 3 years ago. which is kind of sad, since i LOVE pumpkin patch photos. we don't get much "fall" stuff around here. and i love fall colors. so the pumpkin patch is usually my one chance to get my fix. and yet the past few years, october just gets so busy. and somehow, we just don't make it out there. this past monday was our chance. after the daycare kids left, we headed out. with about an hour of daylight left.
this pumpkin patch is HUGE. part of the reason that we went on a weeknight. this place is packed solid on the weekend. hundreds and hundreds of cars. it's crazy busy.
you gotta take pics at all these things, right ;)
alyssa knew what to do. she went around in the pumpkins and everytime i would turn her way, she's pose for me.
sarah decided to bring her camera. so she was too busy taking her own pics, to pose for me. but i love that she's a mini-me!
joe knew what to do too. had to show off the pipes. lol!
still taking pics. i need to remember to pull them off her camera and see how she did.
finally got her to pose.
had to stop at the baby pumpkins.
this is alyssa's typical pose. i had about 10 photos of her giving me the "peace" sign. lol!
this bouncy thing was the big hit for the girls. they really didn't want to do the huge corn maze (and at $10 each, i wasn't going to complain. lol!). they didn't want to do the haunted house. said "no" to the pony rides, the pumpkin blasters, the petting zoo, and the trains. they might have gone for the zipline, but the line was huge and moving super slow. but they loved the bouncy thing. i'm not sure what it is exactly. but they have 2 huge bouncy "hills", just like the bouncy houses at birthday parties.
they had so much fun on there. sometimes, it's the simple things that bring the biggest smiles.
no idea what joe's look is about ... but i'm posting it anways. lol!
the one photo that i'm in, and it's blurry. figures. for the record, it was getting quite dark and i have no clue what my camera settings were on at this point.
oh wait, i forgot i was in this photo too ;)
it was really nice out when we got there. and then it got really cold and windy. the amount of dirt flying around the place was crazy. they look happy in this photo, but they were really freezing. so we headed home. pumpkinless. because even though it looks like we picked out pumpkins in those first photos, we really didn't. no idea why actually. the girls didn't ask, and we didn't offer. maybe because we have some pumpkins at the house from grammie. but we had fun on our little trip out. and i got some good pics and some "ok" pics. so we're all happy :)
