Pumpkin Patch Visit 2009

Sunday we took off to the pumpkin patch and met up with Meghan, Bill and Nick. It was so good to see them this year and be able to actually go to the pumpkin patch. Last year we got rained out and ended up visiting at the Children's Discovery Museum. This year we thought the same would happen but we switched weekends and were able to pick out the perfect pumpkins!

The pumpkin patch had a great "corn box". It was just like a sandbox but with corn and the boys loved it!! We weren't sure we going to get them out there at lunch time!

Let's see - they also rode ponies, pet the animals at the petting zoo, played on the combine turned slides, rode the hayride, picked out pumpkins and gourds, jumped on hale bales and off of them, and then finished the day off with a nice lunch out.

The adults had a nice time too!!

Love the pictures!! It looks like it was great fun. . .I'm so sorry we couldn't come. Aidan is coughing pretty bad and all the neighbor kids have the flu now. No fever yet, but it can take up to a week. I'm glad we didn't bring it to you! We'll get together yet. I promise!

That last picture of Daniel makes him look so grown up. He certainly has changed in the past year.

What a fun time at the pumpkin patch. We were so glad to meet Meghan and Bill at the Outer Banks in May! They are so sweet and we so enjoyed spending a day with them.

Glad Daniel enjoyed picking out a pumpkin!
