Once we arrive at the fields we definitely do some serious pumpkin inspecting. It's important to inspect all the pumpkins to make sure everyone gets the one they think is perfect.
Dan thinks he may have found the two he wants.
We search high and low to make sure we don't overlook the perfect pumpkin. I swear Dan hiked miles searching!
Marshmallow roasting is always a nice little treat too. Mathew prefers the barely warmed, non browned marshmallow.
Dan on the other hand got a little over zealous......I believe his marshmallow was still on fire at this point...hahaha Matie pointed out that his marshmallow looked way to hot to eat :)
A little hike through the woods and a quick tire swing ride was enjoyed before heading back to the tractor.
Mathew was quite excited to have found his very own pumpkin.
The corn maze was a little trickier this year then in the past. We had a great time going in circles trying to navigate the maze.
The final stop of the outing was selecting the perfect giant pumpkins from the huge pile. Shannon and Jason were waist deep searching for the biggest ones they could find. Zach wanted they biggest pumpkin we could find.
We love carving the pumpkins as well and we will probably do that this weekend. We have way more pumpkins then we need but I'm sure we will have a great time and make more memories carving them together!
Here's a look back at the year's past at the pumpkin patch!
Here are a few from last year......
And here are a few from the year before.......
Wow we have enjoyed it through all the years of toddlerhood!
