This weekend we took the kiddos to their first pumpkin patch. I LOVE pumpkin patches so was so excited to do this with them. We were so lucky to have a beautiful sunny fall day for it. Warm enough that jackets were not needed.....in September....in Minnesota! The kids Uncle Nate and Aunt Lesley were also free so they came over to go with us, (thanks guys for being our photographers....coming with us ;) )We went to a place just north of us and it is a perfect family pumpkin patch. They have hayrides, pumpkin bowling, a jumpy jump, bonfire, pony rides, kids Halloween movies playing, and all kinds of different things to take your picture with. In addition there are baby pigs (CUUUUTE!), chicks, ducks, and bunnies to pet/hold. They also had some cute goats to look at. In the "farm" they had cider, donuts, pop, and just in general cute decor. And of course there was a plethora of pumpkins to choose from.....big, small, white, orange, ribbed, smooth, the possibilities were endless.

He found hay....it was hilarious
"Mom, mom! Look how big this pumpkin is!"

After exploring everything we got our pumpkins and headed home.
Such a fun experience, I can't wait to take the kids here each fall!!
