The Pumpkin Patch!

Over the weekend we pumpkin patched! Out of the three trips we’ve been to Hodges Family Farm Pumpkin Patch as a family this one was hands down the best and most fun. This age y’all – I want to freeze it. 

We made the mistake of telling Caroline at bedtime the night before that when she woke up we were going to the pumpkin patch. So naturally she was banging on the walls and singing about the pumpkin patch before the sun even came up. Noted for next year.

However, the silver lining was that we were the first to the patch! And Caroline’s best friend Austin pulled in right behind us (the best unplanned surprise ever) for the second year in a row.

The kiddos ran through every bit of the 5 acres.

However, I was able to contain the minis in the wagon for one round of “If You’re Happy and You Know It” for a family photoshoot.

I promise Thomas’s expression does not accurately reflect his time at the patch. But I can’t stop laughing every time I look at this picture so I had to include it. 

We came for the pumpkins but the farm animals really stole the show. 



Off to the maze where I intercepted at least 3 handfuls of hay headed to Thomas’s mouth.

Guess which toddler refused participation in the pumpkin face photo opp…

It was such a fun day!

    Adorable, as always! and Thomas's outfit- ahhhh! We held off last weekend since it was SO warm in hopes of slightly more fall like temps for the patch (which probably means it'll rain every weekend for the rest of the month : ) hah)

    Adorable! Sadly, our weather keeps being uncooperative when there's time in the schedule to hit the patch! I love seeing them in the wagon!

    I remember this was the best time of my life when mom and dad took you out to a field and showed you the power of nature.
