At the Pumpkin Patch
This weekend we took Noah to a local pumpkin patch. The place was actually more fun than we expected. They had an area with baby goats, a couple of smelly pigs, a turkey, and some chickens. You were not allowed to feed or pet the animals because they would bite, but it was still cute. They had face painting for the kiddos, ice cream, boiled peanuts, and hot dogs. Then you got to jump on a hay ride to head out to pick out your pumpkin. They had an area where you could pick out tiny pumpkins, which I've never seen before, then an area with the larger ones.
It was hard to get a good picture of Noah looking at the camera. There was just too much going on and too many distractions. He seemed to enjoy picking his way through the pumpkins, occasionally trying to push one over. I thought he might try to pick them up, but he was content to leave them on the ground and just touch them all. When we had seen all the pumpkins there were to see, we hopped back on the hay ride to head back to the car. It was a fun first trip to the pumpkin patch for our little family.
