pumpkin patch perfection

Each year we go to a pumpkin farm near here. It is one of my favorite days of the year. The people who own it are sweet Christian people. It is just a fun time of being outside and enjoying the sights and smells of fall as they always have some type of pumpkin goodie baking while we are there. We have gone every year since Aubrey was born. This year we went with some friends from church. The weather was absolutely perfect. Here are a few pictures from our day. (I'm leaving out those of Aubrey throwing up in the car while Mallory screamed for 30 minutes straight on the way there. You can thank me later for sparing you!)

The best shot we could get of everyone. Too much for the kids to look at!

Mallory loved, loved, loved the pumpkins and the wood chips!

Here are the talking pumpkins who tell us we plant the seed, but God brings the sun and the rain to make the pumpkins grow. This is at a pumpkin house during the hay ride. Really sweet.

Mallory was anxious to try out her new pumpkin.

Aubrey's favorite part each year is the old tractor the kids can climb on and ride. My Deere boy!

We ended the day with a picnic lunch on the creek bank. Of course the boys had to get in the creek. It's just what they do.

OK just a few things.....
First, an hour and a half ride is NOT, I repeat, NOT "near here"!

Second, I totally think to stay in the spirit of the season you should have a "puke-a-lantern" in your car now!

Third, too bad you didn't have any of those cute fall jeans for Mallory! ;)

Forth (misspelled on purpose!), I'm glad you had a great time!
Love Ya!
