Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend we took the kids out for our annual picking of the pumpkins.  We are lucky enough to have a pumpkin patch nearby, complete with hayride.  The kids enjoy this each year and this year the weather was beautiful which made it even more fun.  Both Cort and Elizabeth picked out a pumpkin.  The kids had so much fun running all over the place it took a while to get them to actually pick something out.  Then Elizabeth kept getting tangled in the vines, although I don't think she really minded.  We also had the chance to visit with Sophie, a four month old chocolate lab.  She is the owner's dog and stays at the Orchard during operating hours.  She is very sweet and we all fell in love with her, of course no one as much as Elizabeth.  This weekend we will carve our pumpkins and I will post those pictures.  While on the hayride we also were able to see the 16,000 strawberry plants that were planted for next spring - definitely looking forward to going back for that. 

They wanted to see just how big the tires were in comparison to themselves.

Elizabeth had a blast running.....everywhere.

Two pumpkins = two happy kids.
