Pumpkin Patch

Last Sunday we took the girls to Jubilee Farms. It was so much fun! We took a hayride to the pumkpin fields where we searched high and low for two (that was all we could carry) perfect pumpkins. Kayley especially loved tromping through the fields examining every squash in her path saying "apple, apple" over and over. I'd correct, "no, Honey, that's a pumpkin" to which she'd reply "apple". Sigh. Everything round is either a ball or an apple, depending on whether it has a stem or looks food-like or not (pears, squash, etc are all "apples").

Olivia, on the other hand, was a little more focused on all the dirt and mud and therefore not as thrilled with the whole pumpkin hunt as Kayley. She let us know it was time to get back to dry/clean ground when I attempted to get a picture of the two of them together with our prized picks. Oh well, back on the hay wagon we went.

After Paul hauled both our pumpkins to the car while I chased the girls around the farm, we took them to see some farm animals. Pigs, chickens and turkeys (oh my). Then it was on to the hay maze which they really enjoyed. We would have let them play there longer if not for all the big kids running wild and repeatedly almost knocking them over. No worries, I'd have been the same way at that age. All in all, it was a great time.
