The biggest pumpkin patch in the land

We made the trek back to the world o' pumpkins today, and it was actually open for business. Phew. Ro was so excited that she got to wander among the pumpkins this time instead of just hearing about it from her sister. Ro is in red, and Ree is in yellow. I thought these grey ones and white ones were ultra cool. The girls called them "ghostes punkims." DSC_5979LRs2 It truly is a beautiful place, and worth making that drive a second time (slight grumble): DSC_5981LRs2 Mama, isn't this one of those uncarvables? DSC_6023LRs2 Yes, dis is definitely one of those uncarvables, we don't want dis one, mama!: DSC_6025LRs2 I was shooting straight into the sun on this one, so the picture isn't that great, but the cuteness sure is: DSC_5973LRs2 A pumpkin pyramid. Now that really takes the cake: DSC_6027LRs2 Mom, when do we get to ride the cow train? DSC_5989LRs2 Seriously, is it time for the cow train, I think it's that way!: DSC_5991LRs2 I like this family portrait (see me in the bottom part?): DSC_6036LRs2 The girls talk about this cow train all year. And we were dying laughing that Ro (by complete coincidence) ended up in the cow named "Rosebud": DSC_6040LRs2 Awwww: DSC_5999LRs2 Awwww, again: DSC_6005LRs2 Riding the crazy hay ride (it was wildly, wonderfully bumpy): DSC_6057LRs2 We tried to get a sweet shot of the girls and their BFF, but they just couldn't resist plopping right onto the pumpkin pile: DSC_6018LRs2 No trip to the pumpkin farm would be complete without this for dessert, and it was delish: DSC_6132LRs2 They had a live mariachi band at the lunch pavilion, and the girls danced their little butts off (they were hilarious!): DSC_6136LRs2 A good day. Now that we've all seen a pumpkin farm in person this year, we can kick back and buy any future pumpkins at the grocery store like normal folk. Heh.

  3. I'm so jealous of your fancy orange pumpkins! All we have are "ghost pumpkins" which are not nearly as cool on Halloween.

  8. I'm so jealous that you had an actual pumpkin patch. I just blogged about of lack of them in this area.We had to settle for the corn maze.
    It looks like so much fun and I love all the color in the photos.

  10. Looks like a great farm and lots of fun. Love all the Autumnal colors. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for us as we have plans to hit the corn maze and pumpkin patch this weekend, always a fun outing.

  11. I started reading your blog because our timelines were the same but you were just that tiny bit ahead of us (days .. we were home early Nov 06)

    Now I come here because your girls put a smile on my face when I am having a stressful day or when I just want to know that somewhere out there is having as much fun with their kids as I am with mine.

    Plus the photos you take are fantastic !

  12. Love Ro in Rosebud. And that pyramid? Amazing! Glad you made a second trip, even begrudgingly. We are going on the 28th to a pumpkin farm with Caroline's school.

    Now before you write off butternut squash as completely useless due to it being "uncarvable", I have a recipe that uses it called Golden Squash Soup and it is a wonderful, homey, warm you up, cream soup that is splendid for any winter day.

  13. That looks like a TON O FUN!! Store bought punkims? No way! A tradition has been born. :o)

    So many great things to do and fun places to go. Heh....Rosebud!

    Happy carving! Off to read your earlier post.....

  14. How fun!!! So answer me this... if they (whoever "they" are) can create a pumpkin patch in California... why not Orlando? We are a sunshiney and warm state! lol

    What fun and bright pix! Glad everyone had fun!

  15. We went apple picking today and they also have a cow train. They call it The Moo Choo. I thought that was awfully creative.

  16. Great. Now I want a piece of pumpkin pie. That looks so good! The pictures are wonderful! You are very talented. Love the girls holding hands. Totally cool that there was a "rosebud" cow cart. Happy Halloween!

    So envious! That pumpkin pyramid is unbelievable. We have slim pickings even at the grocery stores up here. The 45 minute drive to the Fall Festival last month to see the pumpkin patch - it was a few pumpkins sitting on hay bales!!
