Nothing welcomes fall like a windy day at the pumpkin patch. Windy and COLD!!! Sweatshirt and hoodie cold. But what a welcome change from the heat wave that took us through September!
We went to Walter’s Pumpkin Patch and had a blast. Despite the wind and cold. They have so many cool things to do…jumping pillow, underground slide, swings, wagon rides, corn maze.
Once they got to the top, Jeremy realized he couldn’t get situated with Delaney on his lap and then get down the slide. So he called for reinforcement. Bri and Alli were both reluctant to participate. But I
forced convinced Allison to go.
Can you tell who loved it and who hated it?
Bri was a slightly more willing participant.
Every hour or so they shot a pumpkin out of the cannon.
Can you see it?
I so wish I had gotten a shot of the next few seconds after I snapped this picture. Somehow, they managed to flip the swing over backward and Jeremy landed on his rear. Delaney did a graceful flip and landed on her forehead. Luckily no one was hurt. But it was good for a laugh. Where is the video camera when you need it???
Allison was able to stay on the swing the WHOLE time!
Jumping pillow. Like a trampoline, flush with the ground, surrounded by sand for safety.
We ended the day with a wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch.
And now we have 7 pumpkins. All too beautiful and unique to carve. I guess I need to go to the grocery store to get some plain ol’ carving pumpkins!
