The Pumpkin Patch

Last Friday we went on a Joy School field trip to a local pumpkin patch. Maddie and Jeni were very excited to be able to go as well since they were out of school on Fall Break.
First we let the kids run around in a hay maze. They had so much fun!
Then we got a cart and picked out the perfect pumpkin, which was hard to find in 8 acres of pumpkins!
Then we found some really scary witches...
sat with some scarecrows...
and spooked some ghosts!
It was a lot of fun and now we have lots of pumpkins on our front steps. When we got home the kids had so much fun painting the small pumpkins. They are really looking forward to carving the rest of the pumpkins except for a white one we found that we are planning on cooking up in a pie after it's done it's tour of duty as a Halloween decoration. Yeah for multi-taskers!

I love pumpkin patches. I am so glad you got rid of the snow so you can finish enjoying fall. Can't wait to see pictures of your cute trick or treaters!

That looks like an awsome hay maze. You can actually see into itand take pictures. The one I took Andrew to gave out flash lights to be able to see. It was a dark maze, fully enclosed. Andrew thought the flash light was fun but I couldn't get him to go in more than once. Good times... good times. :)
