Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend all the grandchildren were here and we made a trip to a local farm where they had a great time petting animals, riding ponies, taking a wagon ride, going to the pumpkin patch and corn maze. It was a beautiful fall day, but very hot - wish it had been just a tad cooler.

Nikki loved all the animals and finally got the concept of how to feed them.

I think I now need a farm and some goats and sheep.  Unfortunately, DH doesn't share this thought!

 Nikki was so proud of herself for riding the pony.  There was a really small pony that she had picked out to ride, but when her turn came they said he had had a busy day and was too tired.  She wasn't sure about the bigger pony, but with mom walking along she did great.

 Nikki and Sophie love the bunnies.

 Sophie picked out her first pumpkin with granddaddy.

 This little house is at the back of the farm and Santa is here at Christmas.  While in this area we also saw the horses, most of which are rescue horses.

 Picture before we tackled the corn maze.  With the dry summer we've had there was no worry about getting lost in the maze - we could see over most of the corn!

 The sun was so bright and right overhead so we couldn't escape it.  Here are Bethany and Nikki with their pumpkins.
 The little playground at the end of the tour was a big hit with Sophie and Nikki.

 Looking at the baby pigs.
