We had a great time at the Pumpkin Patch this weekend! Even though it was in the 70’s and even low 80’s. So very fall, ha. I worked most of the weekend, so our early morning trip on Saturday with friends was a great reprieve.
This is the crew we went with – Chris and Lexie, Lydia and Aaron, and of course, me and B.
Lyd is one of my bestest friends here so it was great to spend time with her. We even matched in our grey sweaters (until it hit 11:30 and was way too hot for them!)
B and I got a picture… check out the sign behind us for height, we’re both pretty freakin’ tall.
It was apparently one of the more lame pumpkin patches, but it was closer to home. I still thought it was fun! There were food vendors and other small attractions. Of course there were a few Face-in-Holes around…
There was also this giant dinosaur that would “eat” the pumpkins like once an hour. This lady would feed him:
And then he’d move around (with crazy dinosaur noises playing…)
And then SMASH IT a bunch before it would fall out.
We got on a trailer that took us to the pumpkin patch.
Aaron and B were “bumpin’ pumpkins” and showing off the big ones they chose.
We really only need one so I picked a small pug-pumpkin for myself.
We found this big pile of HUGE pumpkins later… What do you guys think, Christmas Card material?
They guys took an awkward photo together (what’s with the squatting!?)
And then the girls took one too!
It was my first official (aka, I’m old enough to remember) trip to a pumpkin patch and I am happy to report that it was AWESOME. Where do you guys get your pumpkins for carving? Up next… I will be making pumpkin seeds! (Whenever we all get together to carve them, that is!) Anyone have a great recipe to share?
