Pumpkin Patch 2009

We decided on a whim to visit the pumpkin patch today. It was supposed to rain, but we ended up with beautiful weather, and decided to take advantage of it. This marked our third year at this pumpkin patch and the kids were really looking forward to going this year! They were so excited when we told them we were going!

2009 (yes, she is wearing the same shirt...she insisted!):
As soon as we got to the farm, we took a hay ride.

Then, we went to the patch, in search of the perfect pumpkin. Dylan wanted this one, which weighed more than he did!
When we said no, he moved onto this one...
His opinion on the one I chose?
At least Lexie loved it!
He came around.
55 lbs of pumpkins later...
After our two huge pumpkins were loaded in the car, Dylan did a treasure hunt in the straw. Lexie refused. She has something against straw, for some reason.
Then, they checked out the wooden cutouts.

Lexie watched Dylan get his face painted.
Much to our surprise, she actually let somebody TOUCH her, and got her face painted!
The kids checked out the animals in the barn twice! Lexie loved the chicks, and Dylan loved the calf and donkeys.

Grant took Dylan in the corn maze...
...while Lexie made a friend.
She LOVED her kitty face!

She loved it so much that she stared at herself in a pocket mirror on the way home!

Dylan and Lexie were so excited to bring their big pumpkins home, and are already begging to carve them and roast the pumpkin seeds!It was a great day at the pumpkin patch!
