Pumpkin Patch 2008

Last Saturday, we headed out to Hollins Farm- a real working farm out in the beautiful countryside of Virginia. They have pick-your-own pumpkins, tomatoes, peaches, apples, wild flowers, berries, and also sell organic beef and pork. Of course we couldn't leave the farm without a full peck of yummy organic apples!

It wasn't long after we arrived that Tay found her pumpkin...a tiny baby pumpkin. She carried it all through the patch while we hunted for the others. She is very proud of it and keeps it in her bedroom. I love hearing her say the word pumpkin...she says "punkin" and it sounds sooo sweet.

The kids were excited to take a ride on the pumpkin cart back to the weighing station.
The patch was a little hilly and their little legs got pretty tired.... so Daddy to the rescue!

Here is Carter, just taking in the crisp autumn air. He was really funny this year trying to find "his" pumpkin. He inspected MANY pumpkins, trapezed all over the patch, and changed his mind several times before finding the right one.

I think this is the first picture of all four of us in FOREVER.

Sounds like a fun day! You'll have to let me know where this farm is. I'm going with Zoe's class tomorrow to Great Country Farms, I wonder if it's similar...
