The Pumpkin Patch 2012

This week we went to the pumpkin patch late one afternoon.  This is our third year to go to Country Pumpkins in Caledonia.  We LOVE going and it seems like it gets better every year!  

Ellington was ready to head out to find a pumpkin!  She said that she needed a small one, Mama needed a short one, and Daddy needed a big one.  Ha!  She loved picking hers out and helping us find ours too!

LOVE these two!!!

Ellington found hers!

She helped us find the perfect ones.

She was the happiest in the corn box!  I wish we had one of these at our house. :)

She also loved playing in the cotton.  There weren't any other kids in it so Robert and I got in as well. :)

One of the things they added this year was the barrel train ride.  I had planned on E riding alone, but the lady driving said they would go behind the corn field for part of it.  I wasn't sure how she would do if she couldn't see us and was unsure of where she was going, so I decided to ride.  Um, can you say "uncomfortable"?! :)  We were squished in there, the seat was a piece of wood, and it was very very very bumpy!  I was so glad when the ride was over. Ha!  

We had a WONDERFUL time!!!  The only bummer was that we didn't get to do the hayride. :(  They said that they were having a really slow afternoon so the person doing the hayride decided to go work in the fields for a little while.  Oh well!  Maybe next time!
