Visits to the pumpkin patch

Friday we went the pumpkin patch… twice. And then again on Saturday. And when we ran by one on Sunday, we nearly had to stop due to orders from our little boss.

It’s apparently the greatest form of free child entertainment ever invented. Who knew?!

Dash and I happened on one at the feed store on Friday morning where we’d stopped off to pick up chicken food. And it was such a hit, I decided to take him to the one at the nursery by our house in the late afternoon too.

Now every time we pass a pumpkin patch he points and yells and all but demands that we stop. It’s pretty cute. Also really awesome that a pile of squash can entertain a small human for over an hour.

I had an idea to open a pumpkin patch with a BAR. So the kids can run around climbing on pumpkins and the parents can drink beer and wine. Wouldn’t that be so perfect? Man, the Germans have it right with the biergarten, don’t they?

    GAH! Those photos of Dash are simply amazing.
    Is it just me or does those pumpkins look massive in the first shot?!

    Those photos of Dash are so adorable! And the warm light is just lovely. It is amazing how the simplest things will entertain little ones. I love your pumpkin patch bar idea!

    i love his little “oooooooooooo!” face!!

    something tells me we’ll be at the pumpkin patch a solid 15-20 times before halloween is over, too.

    hay rides, barnyard animals and pumpkins? jackpot.
