Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Where's The Pumpkin?

We were lucky enough to have absolutely
beautiful weather this past weekend!
Perfect time for us and, about 500+ of
our closest friends (!!) to go to
the local pumpkin patch!
Maddy and I actually arrived fairly early,
 around noon,
and it was not too crowded yet.
In fact, we went through the spook house
at least four times!
Going into the SPOOOOOOKY house!
It was not too scary!
We also visited the scary spooky castle -
where a wrong turn
put us behind the scenes!
Yay for the Apple flashlight
that helped us find our way outta there!
Jodee and Kamree were also at the pumpkin patch!
What a fun coincidence! :)
The girls loved the bouncing pillows!
And . . .
They would have bounced all
day, but there was a time limit!
We've been going to the same pumpkin
patch since the boys were young -
It's such a fun tradition! 
It's really expanded over the years and has loads of fun stuff
for kids -- Candyland, barrel slides, a goofy magician
and, of course the usual haunted hayrack ride!
One year, the boys planted pumpkins in our backyard,
hoping to turn it into a pumpkin patch too!
We did get quite a few pumpkins and the vines just
about spread over the entire backyard! 
So, we opted to visit -- not have our own
after that experiment!
Dancing to the "Werewolves of London!"

What fun! I wish we didn't have so many states in between our families. Wouldn't the girls have fun together?? Josie would have bounced her heart out with Maddy and Kamree. Darling pictures. Looks like you had perfect weather for your special outing.

What a great tradition. I love fall and visits to pumpkin patches. That looks like a really fun place.

The weather was great for fall until this week. Glad you went to the pumpkin patch before the weather changed.

I got SO spoiled by that pumpkin patch the one time I went, that no other patch can compare! SO much to do!! Glad you and Maddy (and J and K) had a great time!

Thanks again for meeting us at the Pumpkin Patch. Roca is soooo much fun! I think we could have stayed all day since the weather was so nice!
