A couple weeks back we made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. We love Heiser farms because they don’t charge for most of their activities – and the ones they do charge for are really inexpensive. There are animals, a giant slide, a hay tunnel, mini and large tractors to ride and sit on, a hay maze, a corn maze, pumpkins galore, and you can even sit in the hayloft and watch the Peanuts Halloween cartoon.
We started off at the photo board cut-outs…
Ma and Pa Kettle:
Cheesey Jacob Face:
Emily looking oh so adorable:
Hey Dad, I know you’re in there!
As soon as Jacob spotted the little tractors he was gone like a streak of lightning…
Once the big tractors were spotted the little ones were forgotten…
I know this lever here has to do something…
Elizabeth is on a mission – she just doesn’t realize that someone else is on a mission to usurp the tractor back into his power. Mua ha ha ha ha ha!
If I just had longer legs I could reach the pedals down there….
We headed to the hayride after that which takes us to the pumpkin patch and the corn maze. We don’t actually buy our pumpkins there, but we do have a contest to see what is the biggest pumpkin each kid can pick up.
Go Emmy, Go!
Heave Dot, Heave!
I think I saw it lift a millimeter off the ground Liz.
I can, I can!
Well maybe not, I’ll just kiss it instead.
After we terrorized the pumpkins in the patch we headed into the corn maze…
Hey, where’d everyone go? This isn’t Signs is it?
Eeeek!!! Aliens! So, that’s where all the crop circles come from.
And that wraps up our trip to the pumpkin patch. Tomorrow’s installment will be the carving of the pumpkins. If you are wishing to see more pictures, (who can resist looking at more pics of these adorable kids) I have more posted on flickr. If you can’t see them it is because you need an invite, so let me know and I shall invite you.
