Pumpkin Patch

When I was a little girl, the moment it turned October, all my brothers and sisters and I  would get so excited. We always knew that October meant it was time for us to go get our pumpkins. We didn't just go to the grocery store and pick a pumpkin out of the pile... we actually drove to a pumpkin patch and made a whole day out of it. We would always enjoy the activities and enjoy finding the biggest most perfect pumpkin... but our greatest memory of the day was always our dad pushing us all around the field in the wheel barrow as fast as he could without letting us fly out.
Now I get to take my little girl to get a pumpkin. We had so much fun at "HEE HAWS"... Reagan wore her Minnie Mouse costume that I had just finished making that day and we met up there with Grandma, Auntie April and Uncle Daren. (April is almost 6 months prego and Im 4 months along)
We went to the petting zoo and of course Reagan chased all the animals around the pin for as long as we could handle it... Gabe took her down a bunch of Slides, Reagan played in the Corn Box, played on the Tire Swings and we had a had a blast running through the Corn Maze.
There wasn't a wheel barrow at the place but the cart in the maze more than made up for it. Poor Gabe pushed Reagan and I through the maze the entire way. I hadn't had that much fun in a long time. Reagan loved it. She had the biggest smile on her face the whole way. ( Gabe surprised me last week and came home with this amazing Pea Coat for me... He is so wonderful.)
We took a Hay Ride out to the Pumpkin Patch and got to spend some time going through the field looking for the perfect pumpkin. Reagan loved all the little pumpkins. We found some great pumpkins and so did mom and April and Daren. April took some fun pictures of the day. The Pumpkin Patch was so beautiful with all the sun flowers through out the field.  It was such a fun day.
