Pumpkin Patch, Part 1

It's that time of year again!  Fall is here and we celebrated by visiting one of our favorite fall destinations, Mrs. Heather's Pumpkin Patch!  We have been visiting this patch for a while (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) and it gets better every year.  This year we spread the word with friends and family that we would be there, stopped for breakfast at Cracker Barrel on the way, and packed a wagonload of snacks and drinks so we could party until we were pooped...
The animal lovers found a donkey to pet on the way in...
The kids wasted no time in selecting their pumpkins...


Our selection process was not very discerning.  Basically they all grabbed the first one they came to and refused to put it down...
A new addition to the patch this year was Cinderella in her carriage.  The girls were pumped but Watts continued his streak of not trusting people in costumes...

Next year Mrs. Heather's gonna have to get one more scarecrow!
The girls loved the corn maze.  Stella gave her sister an education on how to pick corn.  They both came out of the maze with several ears...



I used my country upbringing to teach Cille how to shuck her corn.  Wish I could figure out a way to get her to eat it...
Mawmaw, Daddy, and Watts tracked us down in the corn maze by listening for the sound of complaining and following that...
Watts was a big help with the wagon...



Cille gave the boys a push on the unicycle-go-round?  What exactly is this thing called?
Stella thoroughly enjoyed the merry-go-round...
More patch fun to come!  5 more posts!
