Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Although I have to come to terms with the fact that summer has come to an end, the good new is that Fall, Beautiful Fall, has arrived! I really have to admit that it is a toss up between Fall and Spring, as my two favorite times of year! The weather has been beautiful. The colors are bright and beautiful. Everywhere you look, there is a pumpkin patch madness! We started our fun at the annual Family Tree Nursery Fall Fun Event. We met Linsey, Lily, and Graeme there for a few hours to share the fun together!
then, we decided to try a new Pumpkin Patch, which turned out to be a bust, because after paying a hefty fee to get in, they told me that the actual "pumpkin patch" was closed because of recent heavy rain, but other areas and activities were still open. So, we could take a wagon ride, but just not get off to pick a pumpkin. We could buy a pumpkin, though, in their nursery. They had a few other activities going on, which were pretty lame, and the kids got one free jump on the giant pillow but would have to pay for more (I think that could have easily been a free event) The food window was unorganized and was easily a half hour wait to order anything! (It wasn't even relatively crowded this day) We have been to other pumpkin patches that had a lot more fun going on throughout the grounds, AND your entrance admission earned you one free pumpkin. Oh, well, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I would rate it a 2 on a 1-5 scale, and to remind myself, the place was called Johnson Farms.
there were a few animals to see...pigs, goats. chicks
we took an opportunity to take pictures in the sunflower field...
all in all, it was fun to spend a day outdoors, surrounded by FALL!
