Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins!

The boys and I went to the best Pumpkin Patch EVER today!!!! And believe me, we've checked out almost all of the local places. Bates Nut Farm, Peltzers Farm, Riley's Farm... this one beat them all!

A John Deere "hey" ride around the pumpkin patch (where they really do grow the pumpkins, imagine that!) My goodness boys, don't look so thrilled.

Then off to pet the goats where Jake about gave me a heart attack the ENTIRE time because he insisted on walking straight up to every single goat, getting about half an inch from their little goat face and then "talking" to them about very important stuff. Soooo funny!!

Sam thought this adventurous goat would be a perfect addition to the "Dog and Cat Show" at Sea World (it's full of performing animals).

Then all the kiddos got to choose their own pumpkin. Our handsome little Sam choose this little cutie.

Then we were off to take pictures of all the interesting gourds and pumpkins of every shape, color, and size imaginable.

Those are turkeys riding on John Deere tractors. Doesn't every family need a couple of those?! Just joking... I did not buy those :) We will definitely be making this pumpkin patch an annual tradition!!

Looks like fun, Laurie! Love your pictures. The one of Sam with his pumpkin is so sweet. What a cutie!

And I LOVE that Jake had to have conversations with the goats. I'm telling you, he and my Seth are kindred spirits. :)
