The pumpkin patch "as a family"

All it took was Hallie's puppy dog eyes asking Ryan, "Can we go to the pumpkin patch today together as a family? Please?" ... and we were off. Lynn told us about this great pumpkin patch in Alpha, IL. It was nice with lots of things to do! Hallie took a pony ride, we enjoyed a hay rack ride with the Clydesdale horses, a petting zoo, some fun things to climb on, and of course the search of the perfect pumpkin. (They also have a corn maze, but we didn't get to that this time.) What would a trip to the patch be with out delicious carmel apples and cider at the end?? The last picture says it all... face covered in leftover carmel and dirt, hair completely wind blown, and barely enough room to fit in the back seat with all the corn stalks and hay bales! What a fun day, as a family!

4 friends had to say...:

Looks like the whole family had fun. When's that little one gonna grow some hair? LOL!

We'll be visiting that patch soon ourselves. We're gonna go for the corn maze. Our youngest (5 yr) hasn't done one of those yet. Should be interesting, he thinks he is a genius so we'll see if he can get us out.
