The Pumpkin Farm!!

What a fun day! We headed to the pumpkin farm nearby--and it was a blast! The kids rode a couple of the rides--one that looked really scary. It did create some "scared little girl" screams from the 10 year old--but so fun to watch! Kate loved the slide. It wasn't a hard rolling slide like you see at so many carnivals. This was a blow up one that literally bounced you from the top to the bottom. She couldn't get enough of that one. There were bumper cars and tilt a'whirls--so fun! The kids each chose a pumpkin. Daniel's was the biggest weighing in at 27 lbs, with Brett's being the smallest--about the size of a softball. They wanted cotton candy--but we decided that we would come home and make our own. Still--it was relatively inexpensive--and we had such fun!

I so miss the pumpkin farms! It is still so warm here in TX (in the 90's) that I don't even want to buy a pumpkin at the grocery because it will rot in a matter of days. Sounds like you guys had a great time! :-D
