Pumpkin Patchin' 2013

Two weekends ago we did our yearly trip to the pumpkin patch.  I wanted to try something different out and got some good suggestions on facebook, but when Hannah decided to take a marathon nap that day and slept way later than usual, we decided to go somewhere a little closer to home.... and went with Burger Farms. If I'm being honest, I don't recommend this pumpkin patch. There are so many others that are just sooo soo much better. This one had rides you would find at a festival and carnival games...and lots of odd things that were just not what I think of when I want to go to a pumpkin patch. All I really wanted though was to take a hayride to a pumpkin patch and pick out some pumpkins, but that was even pretty bad.....we took a hayride through the parking lot and a bunch of dump trucks and muddy holes to a tiny strip of grass with a bunch of pumpkins dumped in a pile...

Last year at blooms and berries we took a fun hayride through haunted woods to a big patch of pumpkins spread out everywhere.... There are a lot of great pumpkin festivals in this city...this is not one of them..... I want a corn maze and caramel apples and hot apple cider and silly cutouts to make you look like a scarecrow.... but anyway....

That being said, we managed to get some great pictures so that made me happy.

We jumped on the magical hayride...



To the pumpkin patch!


Hannah had a great time climbing all over them and checking them out...


It was a gorgeous fall day....



We picked out a couple of small pumpkins and had a little fun while waiting for our hayride to pick us back up...



Happy Fall!
