Pumpkin Picking

We had a blast at the pumpkin farm today. We arrived and as we walked through the gates there were all these huge pumpkins which was a perfect place to stop for a photo op.

Next we headed over to some barns that had some animals in them. Tralee got sniffed at by a curious sheep.
After this we waited in line for the tractor to take us on a hay ride to the pumpkin patch where we could find Tralee's very first Halloween pumpkin. While in line some turkeys got a little up close and personal with us.

Next we enjoyed a hay ride to the pumpkin patch.

Tralee helped pick out her very first pumpkin. She loved to touch it and smack it. However, more than anything Tralee loved to taste the strange, large, orange ball that we kept putting in front of her.

It turns out since Tralee is younger than 3, and she's the only one that got a pumpkin, it was free! YAY! I love free things. We didn't even get charged for the hay ride. However, this farm harvests bees and makes honey, so they got us in the end. We bought some fresh honey for $2.98. Still, that's not bad for a few hours of fun!

It's amazing our little ones didn't get sick and die from some obscure disease with all the random slurping of every nasty object in reaching distance. Nice blog! I like this about 2345% more than the MySpace one. :D Count me in as a regular.

Leslie, I love that you are doing a blog too. It is so fun to keep up this way. Tralee is getting so big! I love how they get so proud of themselves when they do something. Brooklyn's latest is to give a big cheesy grin when she is doing something she knows she shouldn't.
