Pumpkin Patch

We had a really fun day at the pumpkin patch!  Our local pumpkin patch that we'd been going to for years was flooded and didn't have a crop this round, so we switched it up and went to Bob's corn and Pumpkin Farm.  There were corn mazes, a tire swing, corn shooting guns, hay rides, John Deer trikes, canned goods of every kind and the infamous cow train.  This place was packed, but definitely worth it. 

     Then we stopped to have corn smothered in melted garlic
       butter.  By FAR the best corn any of us had ever had!

    First place we hit was the trike track.

Then we took a bumpy hayride over to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins.

Fender found a pumpkin just his size.  He's showing me his muscles.

And if you are dying to know what a "cow train" is, it's basically a bunch of buckets painted to look like cows that the farmer tows the kids around in behind his tractor.  PS our kids are the two waving...we've trained them well!

Such a beautiful farm...

All and all it was a really fun family trip!
