Thursday Thirteen- Pumpkin Patch Fun

Tuesday we traveled a short while to find a pumpkin patch, over the river and into Illinois. Of course, we got lost! So we tried again yesterday. And of course, they were closed. ;) What was really nice was even though we didn't get the whole "pumpkin patch experience" with cider and hay rides, the owner of the farm had an honor system box so our travels were not in vain. The owner even came out to see if we were finding what we wanted, and offered to open the corn stalk maze for the kids! You don't find places like that very often, and it just goes to show you why it's so important to support your local farms.

Emma became enamored with one baby "pumpkwin" and decided that her baby was so cute that it deserved several kisses and a ride in her car seat. ;) Anna feel in love with the little ones as well and spent most of the time looking at the

So here are 13+ pictures of our chilly visit to the pumpkin patch yesterday.

Cute pix. What is it about crossing the river into Illinois that makes it so easy to get lost? I live in MO and have the same problem: I get lost every time I try to take my kids to the apple farm.

Cute pictures. Our kids like the small pumpkins too, but they didn't have baby ones at the patch.
