The Pumpkin Patch...

Despite all the rain we've had here over the past few weeks, today was a gorgeous fall day in Central Arkansas. The sun was shining and the weather was perfect for taking Gage on his first trip to the Pumpkin Patch. I have never been to one, so it was more excited than anyone else! They had tons of pumpkins already picked that you could buy, or you could go pick one. We sat Little Man down beside the ones that were already picked and got some cute fall pictures of him! He looks like a little "big boy" sitting there, huh?
We took a hay ride down to the patch and decided to pick our own! It was a really neat experience to see all the pumkins laying in the field waiting to be picked! This was the one we decided to bring home with us! Gage had so much fun playing in the field with it. People were looking at us like we were crazy for setting him down in the dirt, but he didn't mind!
Michael was probably SO embarrased for me to do this, but I asked someone to take a family picture for us! I thought it turned out pretty cute, except the fact that Gage started crying about the time we sat him on the pumpkin ;)
This is my favorite one from the day! See how much fun he was having? He loves being outside! I'm so glad we went, and I can't wait until next year when Gage can enjoy it more! We are going to do our best to carve this beauty tonight, so stay tuned for the results. Michael and I have never carved one so it could be quite funny ;)

Hi! So I told my hubby today while we were at the pumpkin patch that you looked familiar and I thought it was from blog world. I was like I don't know her but I can't walk up and say I read her blog can I? Wouldn't that sound stalkerish? He said yes. So I ended up not coming up to say Hi but I must say your family is adorable in person! This was our first trip to the pumpkin patch and we had a blast! Next time I will try to introduce myself in person. :)

What pumpkin patch did you go to? I have been beggin Ben to skip hunting on day so we can go, but so far I haven't won on that battle! Gage man looks like he was having fun. Cute family picture. I have never been to a pumpkin patch either so I am excited as well.
