A Perfect Pumpkin Patch!

Each year we excitedly await a favorite family tradition of visiting the pumpkin patch. We pick a beautiful day in October and head up to Walter's to take in everything the farm has to offer. This year the girls rode the Tractorpillar, slid down the huge slide, fed the baby goats, petted the overgrown farm dogs roaming the grounds, laughed at the chickens as they clucked their way to to the pond for a drink, and then road in the cart to go pick out their pumpkins. We found a big one for each of us to carve, and I had to have one of the little sugar pumpkins because well, they're cute! The owner was really sweet too because Autumn was holding the baby pumpkin while we stood in line to pay and he told her she could have it for free! We shared a big dish of huckleberry ice cream and purchased some flavored honey sticks before heading home. It was the perfect day and we can't wait to do it again next year!

I always loved the honey sticks, I would hoard mine for days! I loved your pics,such cute girls. I am hoping we will be able to get to the pumpkin patch before the big "H" day but the weather here is kind of iffy. Looks like fun, though!
