Pumpkin Pickin!

We like to go out to the Farm occassionally for pickin and playing! Since we didn't have any pumpkins make it this year due to the dreaded SVB, we spent the afternoon at the Farm for pumpkin pickin. And the kids sure do enjoy it!
When we went for Strawberry pickin in June, DD had more strawberries in her mouth and all over her than in the basket!
This is a view of one of the pumpkins fields and this place was packed with people today because of a fall festival. The field we went to was not as busy as the others!

We rode on a trailer pulled by a tractor, like a hayride, out to the fields. Their were a lot of tractors with trailors today! DS kept saying "there are tractors everywhere mommy!"

The kids next to some of the pre-picked pumpkins and squash.

After the fields we went to the childrens barnyard to play for a bit...the kids LOVE the 40 foot barn slide!
This is a really fun place to go with the kids. Lots of fun and activities for them. And lots of good fresh fruits and vegetables to bring home (depending on the time of year).
I definitely suggest this place for a place to visit for the afternoon if you are ever in the area! Both of the Farm links at the top are different, not sure why they are not linked together, but it is all the same farm! (I guess one is more for the winery...but they should still link them together.)

We did pick out 3 nice pumpkins...DD picked out a smaller, warty looking pumpkin and DS picked out a couple that were too big for him to carry, but they are nice looking.


  1. I love the pumpkin patch. The boy's class has a field trip to one tomorrow, but there's a 90 percent chance of rain. He'll be crushed. I hope they schedule a make up date. Y'all look like you had a blast.

  2. Nice! We did something like that last year and probably should again. Will you be carving these pumpkins out?

  3. We will probably carve one of them and keep the other two for fall decor on the porch till Thanksgiving! We didn't carve any of them last year! But I think this year, maybe they will be ready to try!
    We had a great time apart from the large crowd...we'll have to go back again to play! There were just so many lines and I am afraid my two just don't understand the concept of waiting in a line yet!
