Pumpkin Patch New Family Tradition

We went to the pumpkin patch in Hammond with our son.  It was great!  They had lots of props for picture taking, a pumpkin patch, picnic tables and tents (they didn't sell food, but welcomed anyone bringing a meal to enjoy their lunch there on the grounds).... it only cost $ 7.00 per child (nothing for the adults).  I mean, really?  Where can you go for seven bucks for two adults and one child and have a lot of fun?!

Our iPhones ran out of juice with all the pictures we took :)  Are you ready for cuteness overload??



Love the next one - already has a shoe off!




Just chillin with the pumpkins


(Below shot, my husband fussed at me, "You have my leg in the shot!  I told you to tell me when to move my leg."  Hehe)

Tents for picnics







Mommy picked out a pumpkin for Gregory.


No matter what we did - call, whistle, crumble crunchy leaves, he would NOT look up.  I think someone told him what happens to the turkeys!


Happy to be back on the wagon :)





Afterwards, we went to visit our good friends, Kristen and Bill.  They live close by and it was perfect timing to give them a hug and wish them a happy anniversary (they are married 7 years).


Below:  Kristen and Gregory - with Kristen and Bill's dog - N'awlins - yes, it's a dog, not a horse. 

Gregory is still learning how to "softly" pet an animal, rather than grab the fur.

It was a great day and I really hope it's a tradition we can continue in the years to come!

It's funny that nearly all pumpkin patches look exactly alike. Very fun though, we try to get to one every year with our grandkids. Your pictures are the epitome of cuteness.

Are you sure that is a dog and not a horse????
