As Parker would call it. Actually he refers to any single pumpkin as a Punkin Patch!
I love going to the pumpkin patch! Something about the feeling of fall and an opportunity for some cute photo opps of my kiddos gets me all excited!!
This year we ventured to a new pumpkin patch (to us) that was "all the rage" from most people I spoke to in our area. So we loaded up and headed out with Aunt DeeDee in tow.
OH MY...this place was an absolute mad house. Filled with a plethora of bounce houses and slides, food tents, plywood cut outs of just about any character/show/movie you could ever even begin to think of. They have a tiny train pulled by a tractor that ran around the property that had a line with enough ppl in it to fill Cowboy Stadium (silly parents...I am not that nice!). Needless to say I was slightly annoyed. Afterall, I just wanted a nice pumpkin patch with great little set ups for photo ops and what I got was a pumpkin patch on crack!
But we were there and had just paid to enter and spent 30 minutes parking...so we were making the most of it!
After fighting the crowds with my big double stroller we made it in and of course over to the bounce houses! The only thing that made the entire day worth it was how much fun my little guy had. He loves a good bounce house and big slide! He looked so grown up waiting in the lines, shoes off, standing as close to the person in front of him as he could (he had to make sure no one cut in front of him!) The look on his face when he knew he was next was almost like Christmas morning!!
After that I got what I came for...a few pictures of my littles and our family with the pumpkins!!!
ps- see the line of cars behind us...that was the line to get in. CRAZY!
