It seems like every year we don't have time to go to the Pumpkin Patch until the last weekend before Halloween. This year was no different and lucky for us - it wasn't raining!
After asking for some suggestions on facebook, and receiving multiple responses voting for Maris Farms, I checked out their website and thought it sounded so cool!
All day long people kept mentioning how cute their hats were. The thing I don't get though, is why people talk about them and not to us? When we were on the tractor ride (pictures 4&5) this happened:
Lady: Oh look at their cute hats.
Her teenage son: Yeah
Lady: How old do you think they are? I'd say somewhere between 2 and 3...probably closer to 3, yeah, I think they're close to 3.
Son: I donno.
I didn't butt in because she wasn't talking to us but I found the whole thing really weird - she was sitting right across from us.
We really debated about going to Maris Farms because it's 30+ minutes away and they charge admission to get in and then also charge for your pumpkins. Even though the boys had fun, I think we should have waited a year or two before coming because the biggest reason I wanted to go was so they could use the ginormous bouncy pillow and they were just a bit too young, I think. We seem to be making a tradition of going to a different pumpkin patch each year so maybe we'll try a different one next year too. Maybe I'll set a crazy goal of attending each patch within a 30mile radius before the boys grow up and move out....'cause you know at 18 we'll still be going to the pumpkin patch as a family!
What's also crazy is how much they've grown since we went to the patch last year and the year before.
