Burt's Pumpkin Farm

Today we made our annual trip to Burt's Pumpkin Farm.  It's a tradition we started when Handley was just a few months old and we have gone back every single year.  I'd been wanting to wait for it to cool off before we went so it would really feel like fall and it did.  It was chilly this morning, but was a perfect day for the pumpkin patch.

We started off with the hayride, pulled by a big green tractor, and saw the farm where the pumpkins grow and the talking pumpkins.

Next the kids took turns sitting on the big tractor that was on display.

Then we were ready to check out all the different kinds of pumpkins.  They have so many different varieties!

Robby grabbed a wheel barrow and the kids had fun going for a ride. :-)

Last year, Hudson wasn't even walking when we came to Burt's, so I was curious to see what he thought.  He had so much fun running through the paths and kept saying, "Hey guys!  Here's one!" as he pointed to all the different pumpkins.

Then he got Handley in on is running quest to find a good pumpkin to take home.

Harper was not interested in any of that...she just wanted to pick out the pumpkin she would call hers.  After we picked out family pumpkin to carve she started picking up smaller ones and adding them to our wheelbarrow. Robby said he didn't think she realized that we had to pay for them. I think she just loved them all!

Trey, Stefanie and Sophia were arriving just as we were getting ready to leave.  We didn't know they were coming until we were already almost there this morning.  They were supposed to go the day before, but because of the rain they postponed to today and I'm so glad they did!  I was happy to get some pictures of all the kids together.  Next year we will have to plan a little better so we can all come at the same time.
