Last weekend, we took the kids to the "pumpkin patch". In quotes because this was not the usual pumpkin patch where you walk through muddy fields and search for your perfect pumpkin to actually cut from the vine. This was the local pumpkin patch with bouncy houses, rides, and a small petting zoo. The children loved it and had a great time, but I do miss the mess of the real pumpkin patches. Notice the attire on the children.....it was a hot day and I did not feel like forcing them into their fall/halloween attire on this day(Yes, Carrie, I know I should have for the sake of the pictures).
