Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

Adam took a day off so that we could do our annual visit to the pumpkin patch (2012, 2011). We usually go to the Schaefer Collins Pumpkin Patch in Mayflower, which we really like and we will most likely go to again next year, but we wanted to try out another one in a totally different direction. Friday morning we headed to Mary's Place in Bryant. The kids were super excited to be picking out their own pumpkin as well as riding the hay ride.

They enjoyed seeing the animals...

Ava Jane took in all the sights and sounds, she was particularly interested in the goats...

The boys loved running through the rows and rows of pumpkins...

My boys are precious...I am truly blessed! They are such good friends, they loved chasing one another through the tunnel...and it makes my heart swell to watch it all.

They had a blast taking their turns riding the bull barrel...

Unfortunately there were several classes that were taking up the hayrides. When we arrived at 9:45 they told us that we wouldn't be able to ride it until after 12 noon...that was quite the bummer, but we did get to ride the train! That pretty much made it all better for the boys! (It was the same train we'd rented for Lawson's birthday party several years ago.)

The train ride takes you through woods...

We enjoyed (most of) our time together...finding our pumpkins, looking at all the different kinds, riding the train and playing together...

Though Emerson and Ava Jane had had enough, I think the trip was a complete success, even without the full group shot to prove it!
