Nothing Like Getting Up Close and Personal

One of the things I love about this time of the year are the visits to pumpkin farms, complete with petting zoos, pumpkin picking, camel and pony rides, and of course, caramel apples. These photos were taken of Caden at our church's Fall Festival, and while I worried slightly about his being SO close to the animals, it was cute to see how playful and affectionate he was with them.
We had a field trip to a pumpkin farm with Cody's kindergarten class on Friday. It was so fun to watch the kids get excited about seeing the big pumpkin-eating, smoke breathing dragon and all the animals on the "farm." Unfortunately, this particular farm was hit hard in August with rain and their entire pumpkin crop was destroyed, so the kids were only able to go and pick out a pumpkin that had been previously purchased by the farm. They still had fun finding the "perfect pumpkin" and we moms and dads even got to take one home too! Yes, I still get excited about pumpkin picking at my ripe old age of 33!
Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

Caden- you are soooo precious!! I just love those pictures of you cuddling with the animals.

Thanks for sharing your family with us Happi! I so enjoy coming to your blog. Every time I read your entries I get a huge smile on my face.

My JB is the same with animals. I cringe but love his pure love of all things! (No matter how grimey!)

I have never been to a pumpkin patch nor have I ever brought a pumkin home in all of my 34.75 years of life. I am thrilled to say that I am taking the kids on Friday with our Home School group. Unfortunately, we may have rain that day! I am praying it will be done by then. We are still in drought mode - so rain is a plus. But I am REALLY looking forward to our plans Friday! Hold the rain God until we finish our fun!?! :)

I too love pumpkin farms. I got to go with Hunter's class last Friday and take home a pumpkin. I think I had as much fun as the kids, but I WAS trying to keep track of 4 little boys. That can be a bit stressful
