A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch


Every year Cooper and I travel to the Pumpkin Patch with some of our good friends.  It works well because Scott is usually busy working and so is the father of our good friends.  So the two mothers load up our three kids and head to the pumpkin patch.  The kids look forward the Pumpkin Patch, spending time together and the all time favorite toddler activity a picnic.  We usually make a short day out of the experience arriving as close to the opening time as possible and returning home in time to get in a nap. 

The year our schedule didn’t allow it until the weekend before Halloween.  Needless to say we had fantastic time and there are so many things for the kids to do.

First up was a trek to the top of the tire mountain.  The first year we went Cooper could barely get up one tire.  This year he scrambled to the top before I could even get the camera out of the bag.

Then it was on to the Big slide.  Check out Cooper heading to the top.  This was the first year he had attempted the Big Slide.

Look at that great big smile.  Cooper loves a good slipper slide.

They even have these big pieces of drain pipe that kids get in and then you can roll them around the yard.   Cooper likes to roll the pipe.

And for all the future bull riders they even have a practice bull to ride.

There is even a roping area set up for the little cowboys and cowgirls to practice up on their roping skills.

Such Decisions

Finally we found our perfect pumpkin and headed home to take a nap.  All that playing and searching make for a very tired Cooper and Mommy.
