The Pumpkin Patch

We visited the Anderson Orchard Pumpkin Patch weeks ago but have been so slow about posting pictures. Yikes! Let's hope that the first trimester weariness is behind us now and we can stay up to date on sharing these great times.
We had the perfect conditions for a delightful day: mild weather, bright blue skies and an excited three year old. We had some delicious apple cider, carmel apples and treats.

In search of the perfect pumpkin

The pumpkin patch has little pumpkin tickets that you redeem when you pick out your pumpkin. Well, Marilyn thought it was a picture of the EXACT pumpkin we were supposed to find. The pictured pumpkin has eyes, a nose, mouth and a little curly tuft on top. She searched diligently through the field, scrunching down and examining all the pumpkins to find the one with a face. We ultimately convinced her that the we just needed to pick one, and we would make our own face on it.

We had a great day at the pumpkin patch, as it is always one of my favorite Fall outings.

Marilyn looks like she was having a great time. It takes looking at a lot of pumpkins to find just the right one!!
