Pumpkin Patch

We went to a wonderful pumpkin patch last weekend, and, wouldn't you know, we haven't had rain in months and it rained that morning! It didn't dampen our spirits, and the sun did come out later. Ian had a great time, and was running from one thing to another when we first got there since there was so much to see...he wanted to make sure he didn't miss out on one single thing!
He is obliging me with a picture, but his face is saying, "Hurry up Mommy, there is so much to explore here!"Of course he had to drive the boat full of pumpkins!Ian and Ken...enjoying themselves despite the rain.When the firefighter told him he could get inside the firetruck, he didn't waste ANY time climbing up.
Buckled up and ready to go.That smile says it all. :) I think the fire truck was one of his favorite things that day.Feeding the goats.
Climbing up for the hay ride.Taking time to smell the flowers...Anyone who knows this little guy, knows how he sneezes when allergens are high. :) Once we got away from the flowers, the sneezing stopped.The photo doesn't do justice to how beautiful the flowers were.No fear of the chickens. Too bad there wasn't any chicken feed because he is practiced up in that department! :)Listening for the wagon that was pulling the trailer for a hay ride.
"There it is!!"Hay bales dressed up as pigs.Barrel ride.Such joy.The tunnel that passed under the road to connect to another part of the farm...fun times for a little boy!Showing off his muscles in front of these huge pumpkins.Picking out just the right one...Thinking about the delicious pumpkin ice cream we had just eaten; we all wished that we had bought 2 servings instead of just 1. Ian adored "driving" all of these small tractors. This farm was truly heaven for this sweet boy!
Waving from the "yeller" barrel...who doesn't like an old farmer with a good Texas drawl? :)
