Our Family Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday (Fri.), Jason and I took the kids to a local pumpkin patch. We usually go to Briley's Patch for Strawberries (in the spring) and Pumpkins (in the fall). We decided to go to a new one called Brock's Berries and Pumpkins. It was small but the owners were so nice. Mr. Brock took all of us on a hayride and let us feed corn to the goats. He was such a sweet guy. We had a good time. The weather was nice. We let the kids look at the pumpkins. They had some HUGE ones. We had never seen pumpkins that big in real life before. We took tons of pictures so of course I have added some. It's so hard these days to catch a picture with both kids either looking at the camera or getting them to smile, so these aren't the greatest but are the best of what I got.

I like the sign in back of picture 2. "Goodness Grows in NC"
All 4 of us were "grown" in NC. I guess we are GOODNESS!!!!

Jason and I with the famous huge pumpkins!!

The kids on the hayride. Notice their halloween shirts. Joey's is a Mummy that says "Mmmm, CANDY!!!" And Maddie's is of her FAVE animal, an OWL!!! I love my CUTE babies!!

Look at my two hillbilly kids. I love Maddie's expression. She's so funny. Both of them look so serious.

Here is the real Maddie aka Miss Priss!!! But what a little cutie.

Jonas enjoyed throwing the hay everywhere. He'd rip it out of the bales and then throw it and laugh. He loves being destructive. My baby boy!!!

Here's a picture of the goats that we got to feed corn too. The kids really enjoyed it. I don't have any pictures of them doing it but I have a video, though it's too long to add on here.

Well that was our trip to the pumpkin patch this year. We enjoyed it and we all have our pumpkins and are ready to carve them. It will be interesting to see what we all decide to carve them into. Maddie is requesting an owl again this year, which is no surprise. :o)
I'm glad to have this fall weather here. It's just so refreshing after that hot, humid summer!! HAPPY FALL YA'LL!!!!!

I thought the pictures turned out good! I told Ryan when I saw the first pic up on google reader that I bet it was Dave's place. He is so nice-a very generous person. Glad that's where you guys decided to go! I was going to send out an e-mail next week about the corn maze that he fixed up. I don't know if you guys saw the barn before he fixed it up but he did an AMAZING job.

Can't wait to see some pictures of the carved pumpkins! And I'm super excited about seeing what you guys are for Halloween...the suspense!

My kids don't smile for the camera either. Well, sometimes Lily does, but not often. The pics turned out cute anyway! I love the one of Jonas with the hay in his mouth and the one of Maddie with her hands on her hips. :)

P.S. I keep forgetting to tell you, but Dave and I keep bursting out with random laughter when we remember that you told him to, "KISS IT!" the night we came over. HILARIOUS! It made us feel right at home!
