Pumpkin Patch

We love visiting one of the local pumpkin patches every year.  I'm picky about when we go...the weather has to be right--fall weather, cool, leaves changing.  This past weekend we had PERFECT weather!  It was a cool morning, but not as cold as a couple of years ago when we needed sweaters, coats, gloves, and hats.  It was warm enough that we didn't need coats, but long pants and sleeves were great.
Our usual trip got cut a bit short because John Paul sliced his finger open and decided he didn't really feel good (he also had spent the night at Grammy Julie's and didn't sleep much).  We all did have a wonderful time though and picked out some perfect pumpkins and got to ride the tractor ride.  The only thing we missed was our trip through the corn maze.
First was the tractor ride.  The tractors pull the trailer all around the fields so the riders can spot all the perfect pumpkins.  Penelope and John Paul kept pointing them all out. "Want that one!"
Then the wagons must be chosen.  These two insisted on these wagons although Penelope couldn't decide which one she wanted to push/pull and kept trading Alexander.  He was a good big buddy and went along with all the trading with little complaining.
While Alexander and Penelope did the wagon dance, John Paul was busy dragging and pulling the biggest pumpkin he could move.  Oh, the effort! :)
Spotting another perfect one.
The wagons are filling up...
Our loot
Fun times!
