pumpkin patch 2011

Last weekend (I think), Mr.P and I decided to take BG out to a local pumpkin patch for the day. Last year was her first visit and we had a total blast, so I had high hopes for this year.

I was not disappointed.

We somehow managed to pick "Clemson Day" to show up so the tiger was running around taking pictures with the kids. Of course we had to get BG's. Nevermind the fact that she is not a fan of costumes.

Unfortunately because of the lack of rain this year, the corn maze is barely a foot tall and a total bummer. But they had these "mini mazes" set up that the kids could go through. Of course my child ran around like a total crazy person in there. She was pretty proud of herself.

Seriously? That smile slays me.

The petting zoo was a bit lacking (as in "no petting"), but BG did like getting to check out the brand new baby pigs.

We met up with Tiff and her family for the hay ride and pumpkin patch. The kids had an absolute blast picking out pumpkins. I'm so glad to have a little playmate here in town for BG. She just loves Timothy!

It didn't take long for BG to pick out her very own pumpkin.

Such precious kiddos.

She wanted to hold his hand on the walk back to the farm.

They had so many fun activities there for the kids. BG and I found this monster slide that we have course had to go down. She wasn't sure about it until we got back down to the bottom. Then she couldn't stop laughing!

BG and I rode the cow train again this year. As we waited for it to start up, she started to get a bit upset. But the minute it started, she couldn't stop giggling. She laughed, she carried on, she waved. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever. Not so cute? The tantrum she threw when it was over. We let her ride it one more time and the lady driving let us sit up front. BG absolutely loved it!

Quite a difference huh?

After her second ride, it was time to call it a day. We had such a good time (as evidenced by the eight million pictures I took!). She is at such a fun age where her enjoyment of things is so fun to watch. She just gets so excited and it's hard not to have fun with her. I think before the Fall is up, we'll definitely be taking another trip out to the pumpkin patch.
