Pumpkin Patch '08

Saturday we went to the Old Baker Farm Pumpkin Patch and had a really great time. I highly recommend this pumpkin patch! We didn't really know what to expect, except pumpkins!, and were very pleased with our fun visit. It's a great deal too- $9 per adult, includes one pumpkin, hayride to the patch, "petting zoo" barn, hay & corn mazes, cotton ball "jumper" and plenty of great photo ops! There's homemade lemonade & kettle korn, barBQ, hot dogs, etc for sale too for a great lunch. Make sure to say Happy Birthday to Old Mr Baker who is celebrating his 100th birthday this week!

Georgia was adorably cute in the pumpkin patch! She wanted to get down in the dirt right away and ran & ran thru the field. She tried to pick up pumpkins of all sizes and wanted no help, of course! We eventually led her to one her size and daddy brought that one home for her.

Once again, she loved the animals. She saw ducks, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs, baby cows and horses. She wasn't too sure about the big horses, but gave them a little pat anyways.

Her favorite part was riding on the little pedal tractors they have all over for the kids to play with. In fact, the only waterworks of the day come when we made her leave the tractor to go pick pumpkins! She thought the tractors were the main attraction!

We had beautiful fall weather for our pumpkin-ing and loved having Grammie & Grandad help us pick out our pumpkins again this year!

The entire day at the farm was wonderful, family fun for all ages!! The hay ride to the pumpkin patch was wonderful and looking at all of the pumpkins in the field, trying to find the best one was alot of muddy fun! Georgia loved the corn we bought and the rest of us loved the kettle corn! We were blessed to be able to spend another Halloween with K&L& precious Georgia! Mommy looked like she had a pumpkin hidden under her shirt! We can't wait for baby Linc to join us for the holidays ahead!! Don't come before Dec 2nd!!! Love Grammie
