Last week we decided we wanted to take the kids to the pumpkin patch, even though the prices are a smidge outrageous. Andrew took off work, we planned Hannah’s nap, and headed for the 30 minute drive to the pumpkin patch.
When we arrived, they informed us they were going to close in less than an hour. Bummer! So that left us ~45 minutes to visit the store, take pictures, go on the hayride out to the patch, pick the pumpkin, see the pirate ship, play on the playground, and go through the corn maze.
We stopped by the little market with all the picked pumpkins and Hannah was thrilled to get her picture taken. (*Sarcasm*)
Then we headed on the short hayride to the pumpkin patch.
We were slightly disappointed to find out most of the pumpkins are “placed” in the field instead of being able to pick them. There were a few on the vine, but they were tougher to find.
Right next to the pumpkin patch, there was this awesome pirate ship! For about 15 seconds, we had it all to ourselves before a large daycare group arrived.
The tractor driver saw Drew admiring the tractor and let him hop up there for a photo op. Drew said, “Look, mama! I’m Uncle Judd!”
We had a lot of fun in our short hour there, but next year we’ll make sure to arrive earlier! Next up: carving those pumpkins!
