The Pumpkin Patch

A little family picture (me at 18 weeks)

Matt is back in town!! YAY! He got home late Friday night. He spends the next 2 weeks working on trauma unit during the night float, so before that started we decided to enjoy our day together as a family on Saturday and take a trip to the pumpkin patch. I really didn't want to buy pumpkins from Walmart again this year. There's nothing wrong with that, it's just that I grew up going to pumpkin patches and taking hayrides out to the fields to pick your own pumpkin and coming back and seeing farm animals and all that good fall stuff. So I googled pumpkin patches to find some in our area. The closest patch with all the legitimate activities was 45 minutes away. So we took a pretty drive out into the Texas hill country and had a fun family day.
The hayride from the parking lot to the orchard

At the end of the hay maze, the kids claimed their kingdom at the top of the haybale

Brushing the mini-horse (I forget what they're called)

Holding baby chicks. Maya's favorite part. You can see the excitment/fear in Luke's expression.
