Pumpkin Patch

Saturday after Syrah’s game we went to the pumpkin patch. Since Sadie was little we have been going to this small local farm. They only open their farm to the public during the Halloween season so it’s quite a treat. This is the latest that we have ever gone to the pumpkin patch and we were surprised to see how many people were there.

The girls got to feed some animals and pet some baby chicken, ducks and bunnies. One of the highlights for me is the fact they had chicks hatching on display… what an amazing process to witness! Also, just the day before we went some new piglets were born!! The mama was keeping them pretty close, but one was out just enough for us to catch a photo.

Once we made our way to the pumpkin patch itself we realized that coming late provides very little choices in regards to pumpkin pickin’ so we ended up at the local grocery store for our pumpkins this year. It worked out great though; there was a huge selection and the prices were great!!! Hopefully we can find some time to carve them before Halloween!
